The strategies of Mattia Binotto, director of sports management – sometimes questionable – of Scuderia Ferrari, made you pull your hair out since the start of the season? You will have the opportunity to try to do better on F1 Manager, available from Thursday on PC, PlayStation and XBox for those who have placed the pre-order, or August 30 for others. This brand new official management game of the Formula 1 World Championship allows you to lead your favorite driver to the supreme title, by placing the player in the shoes of a team manager.
Highly anticipated by fans, this new series, developed by the British studio Frontier Developments, incorporates all the codes of management games to the Soccer Manager : the players do not drive their single-seater and only influence the races via their instructions. On the other hand, they have access to a whole host of levers impacting the performance of their team, from the management of the drivers to the evolution of the car, through the management of the finances or the infrastructure of the team.
Very immersive, to the point of becoming time-consuming, F1 Manager offers dynamic race weekends, even if the artificial intelligence and the race strategies are still perfectible. However, it remains a little difficult to understand for novices who are not very experienced in management games, despite a relatively ergonomic interface. But it succeeds in its main mission: to be the more strategic but less dynamic complement of F1 22the Codemasters simulation that puts players behind the wheel.
