In F1 Manager you will experience the 2022 F1 season and all its races from the team boss perspective. You can choose any F1 team, however it seems like you will not be able to create your own F1 team.
Your task is to build and manage the headquarters (HQ). This includes analyzing your drivers and employees, as well as managing finances. It should be possible to hire engineers and mechanics from the other teams in order to gain an advantage.
The factory is where the Formula 1 car is built. This is where upgrades are developed and manufactured - under your leadership. It is therefore your decision in which direction the car is developed and which areas you attach particular importance to (e.g. chassis, aero or the engine).
In the race itself, you take on the role of chief strategist and decide when to pit and which tires to use. The race has many dynamic influences, such as the weather and changing track conditions (and safety car periods?) that need to be reacted to in order to get the best for your drivers and the team.
The simulation of the race should be "hyper-realistic" and in "true-to-life broadcast quality" - that sounds like a game we want to play!
Other Interesting Facts:
There will be Formula 2 and Formula 3 drivers and employees in the F1 Manager. So you will be able to hire these people aswell for your team in the new management simulation for Formula 1!
