Have you ever found yourself thinking you could do better than the F1 Team Principals during an action-packed race? Or do you want to immerse yourself in the strategy and high-octane drama of an F1 race weekend? F1 Manager 23 lets you do just that, and it’s available from today.
With broadcast quality presentation, and a more authentic recreation of an F1 race weekend than ever before, you can jump right into the action and manage your chosen F1 team on your terms.
An Immersive Broadcast Experience
If you’re an F1 regular, you’ll be immediately familiar with the broadcast experience in F1 Manager 23. We’ve gone to great lengths to replicate what you see on TV, from the timing tower which allows you to view important information like intervals and tyre compounds, to instant replays of key incidents in the race, with commentary from real-world commentators David Croft and Karun Chandhok.
Rarely does an F1 race go exactly to plan, and that’s something you need to consider as a Team Principal. Crashes, spins, and more can affect the outcome of the race. A safety car could drastically alter your strategy, or a red flag could bring a pause to the session, giving you a chance to rethink your plans.
Also new this year is the exhilarating visor camera. As introduced recently in real-world F1 broadcasts, you can now get closer to the action than ever before and see through the eyes of your drivers as they execute your every command. Alongside visor camera, our broadcast camera angles closely resemble those you would see during a live race on TV, allowing you to watch the race unfold on a broader scale.
The introduction of the DHL Fastest Pit Stop award to the game brings with it a new challenge for you to consider when managing your team. Make use of your Sporting Director and the brand-new pit crew training schedule to strike that perfect balance between executing fast pitstops, eliminating costly mistakes, and avoiding team fatigue.
Enhanced Detail on and off the Track
F1 Manager 23 is the most authentic F1 management experience ever made, and our Art team has put in outstanding work to recreate the cars and tracks in more detail than you’ve ever seen in a motorsport management game. We work closely with F1 and all the teams to make sure their latest high-speed marvels of engineering are represented as accurately as possible within the game.
A fast car is nothing without a driver however, and with face scanned 3D models for each F1 driver, updated helmets and team overalls, your star drivers will look the part on the track. That’s not all though, we’ve added up to 4 times the amount of driver team radio than in last year’s game, so you’ll hear your Race Engineer and driver react to more moments and decisions you make throughout the race weekend.
The 2023 F1 calendar is full of iconic circuits, and you get to experience them all in F1 Manager 23. With 23 races in the season, and the new addition of F1 Sprint events, you need to be ready for every type of track. Some tracks benefit from a focus on your car’s downforce, whereas outright power is key on others. We’ve used Airbus’ satellite technology to accurately recreate all these tracks within the game, as well as all the latest changes to tracks like Barcelona, and the addition of new circuits like the dazzling Las Vegas Strip Circuit.
New Race Replay Mode
All this comes together in our brand-new Race Replay mode, which takes our authenticity to the next level. Utilising real-world data, you’ll be able to relive thrilling races and key moments from the 2023 FIA Formula One World Championship.
Starting Grid replicates the race conditions and starting positions of every race from the 2023 season, allowing you to select any team, create your strategy, and see if you can outperform the real-world Team Principals.
Race Moments puts you in charge of pivotal moments from real races in the season. Can you give Alonso his first win of the season in Monaco, or guide McLaren to an unexpected victory at Silverstone? Your decisions in the moments that matter will make all the difference here.
