Get ready for a thrilling ride as the vibrant world of Formula 1® roars to life in the latest season of F1® Manager 2023. Brace yourself for twenty-three heart-pounding races, six adrenaline-fueled F1® Sprint events, and a fleet of new cars ready to hit new circuits, including the dazzling Las Vegas Strip Circuit. With new drivers at the wheel and fresh challenges on the horizon, it’s time to start your legacy in the realm of motorsports.
In F1® Manager 2023, you have the power to steer your team to victory over a career that spans decades, or you can dive into single-race scenarios, meticulously crafted with real-life F1® data in the innovative Race Replay mode. As a Team Principal, you’ll be in charge of every aspect of your team’s growth, from the first day at the factory to the precise commands relayed to your star-studded driver pairing. On the track, the action quickens with stunning broadcast-style visuals and immersive team radio, bringing every dramatic moment to life.
The brand-new game mode, Race Replay, places you right at the heart of the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship™. It offers you two unique ways to rewrite the outcomes from races throughout the season. In Starting Grid, you’ll take control of a team of your choice in a full race that accurately replicates the precise race conditions and grid positions from a real-life Grand Prix™. On the other hand, Race Moments challenge you to take control part-way through the race, during a pivotal or defining moment, as you aim to complete a set objective before the chequered flag is waved. New Starting Grid and Race Moment scenarios will be added after each thrilling real-world race in the 2023 season, challenging you to improve on the season’s real results and demonstrate your ability to change the course of real races.
In addition to the base game, you can test your skills with an additional 12 Exclusive Scenarios, which are comprised of Starting Grid and Race Moments, tackling hypothetical challenges. Who would claim victory if every car was equal? Can you recover from the back of the grid to take victory in ‘Raging Bull’, or guide your drivers to success with unexpected circuit conditions pushing the track and tyre temperatures to extremes at the Formula 1 Qatar Grand Prix in ‘Scorcher’? The Deluxe Edition allows you to put these questions and more to the test.
In the returning career mode, you’re invited to delve even deeper into team management in 2023. Mitigate against costly pit-stop errors or improve pit-stop times by training your pit crew via the new Sporting Director staff member and bring substantial new upgrades to race weekends by developing new components, finely balancing performance, weight, and cost. F1® Manager 2023 also features the full roster of 2023 drivers and staff members, with fully simulated F2™ and F3™ Championships producing fresh new talent to replace stars as they age or suffer poor race results. Opt for an immediate driver switch or look to the future by offering a contract for the following season, establishing a dream team to deliver success.
During each race weekend, you must use your strategic decision-making skills to guide your drivers to success, utilizing the new driver confidence and tactics system, fluctuating track conditions, and even individual tyre temperatures to inform when and how hard to push your stars in the pursuit of points. Claiming the top of the podium won’t be easy, however, with improved reactions and strategic planning from competitor teams aiming to take victory in dramatic wheel-to-wheel races. Knowing where to find the line between the perfect lap and the gravel trap or a corner-collision with a rival is more vital than ever before.
As a Team Principal, you’ll feel the thrill of every lap in a stunning recreation of the broadcast experience as drivers go wheel-to-wheel across six F1® Sprint events and all 23 circuits, including the brand-new Las Vegas Strip Circuit™. Experience unmatched realism as the action unfolds from multiple trackside and onboard cameras, including the immersive new visor camera, and hear every command brought to life by an expanded pool of real F1 team radio, with key moments highlighted by the returning commentary team of David Croft and Karun Chandhok.
The first planned post-launch update for F1® Manager 2023 will arrive in early September, allowing you to extend your legacy in career mode by accepting a job offer from a rival team based on your performance. New scenarios for Race Replay mode will release following each real-world race. So, gear up for an immersive gaming experience in the world of racing and motorsports with F1® Manager 2023!
