What Is F1 Manager 2023?

Whilst the majority of Formula 1 titles see you racing some of the world's fastest automobiles in an attempt to win more championships than Michael Schumacher, F1 Manager 2023features a more in-depth look at aspects of the sport that don’t involve getting behind the wheel. But what exactly is it? If you’re unsure if this is the right game for you, then look no further, as we’re here to explain just what exactly this management simulator is all about.

If you’ve ever played titles such as Football Manager 2023, then you’ll already have a fairly decent understanding of what to expect with F1 Manager 2023. Just like the aforementioned footie sim, you won’t be taking part in the action directly, but rather issuing orders and planning out strategies both on and off the track. Don’t worry, though, you’ll be able to sit back and watch the fruit of your labours once the cars are off the starting grid!

Choosing one of many F1 teams, you’ll be able to oversee everything from the race events, to the factory where parts are constructed. Basically, every decision is up to you, with unparalleled control that allows complete freedom in leading your team to victory. Managing the pit crew, for example, gives you the ability to fine-tune how they perform. Do you opt for a balanced training regiment, or have them focus on minimising the number of errors when replacing tyres? What about the development of your drivers? Raising their confidence and morale is a must, alongside upgrading your facilities to keep them in top form; although giving them the boot and hiring new drivers is also an option!

For newcomers, the Race Replay mode is a good starting point, giving you key moments in races to play out, rather than starting from scratch. F1 Manager 2023 is definitely heavy on menus (as all good management games should be!) and can even seem slightly overwhelming at first glance, but don’t let that deter you, it won’t take long before you’re the greatest Team Principal in F1 history!

Although you won’t be directly controlling any cars, the presentation of F1 Manager 2023 is about as close as you can get to broadcast level of quality, being able to watch thrilling races unfold in real-time. Perfect for anyone craving for a race day during the off-season! It’s not just about the looks, as data from actual live races has been used to ensure complete authenticity of the 2023 season, with driver AI aiming to act like their real-world counterparts.

On paper, it may seem like a “spreadsheet simulator” with an F1 flourish, but after trying out F1 Manager 2022 and becoming fully immersed in its depth and presentation, we’re fully confident the latest iteration will exceed its predecessor. With new game modes, new events, cars, circuits, and more, F1 Manager 2023 is shaping up to be a must-play for fans of the sport!
