F1 Manager 2022 Will Let You Build Your Own Grand Prix Winning Team

F1 Manager 2022

Want to build your own F1-winning race team? F1 Manager 2022, arriving this summer, could be just the ticket.

Sure, there are games that let you leap into the seat of an F1 racing car (and then deliberately drive the wrong way round the track) but F1 Manager 2022 is set to offer more than that. Instead, you’ll be running the whole team, ensuring the car is in tip-top condition, picking the driver and advising the driver mid-race.

In short, you’ll be doing everything but the driving. That includes balancing the books, because running a Formula 1 team requires an awful lot of cash. Developer Frontier Developments hasn’t specified whether you’ll be able to court advertisers, deciding whose livery ends up on your team’s cars. However, the game’s director, Andy Fletcher, has promised that:

F1 Manager 2022 will deliver an experience for both new and long-term fans that is as authentic as it is exciting. Our commitment to the ever-changing world of Formula 1 will build a strong foundation for a long and special series that will evolve over time.”

Hang on.. series? Yes, this is Frontier’s first foray into F1, having previously been responsible for titles like Jurassic World Evolution 2 (and 1), Planet Coaster and more. Fletcher and his team will no doubt be hoping that this first entry is a smash though, a little disappointingly, the teaser trailer doesn’t show off any actual in-game footage.

F1 Manager 2022 is set for a Summer 2022 release, landing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox one and, via the Steam and Epic stores, the PC.
