F1 Manager 2022 Behind the Scenes Video - Episode 1: Be the Boss

The first video in Frontier’s behind the scenes series for F1 Manager 2022, its newly licensed F1 management simulation game, was unveiled today.

Episode 1 of the series, “Be the Boss,” introduces players to the role of the Team Principal, who is at the center of every Formula One team and responsible for a number of elements, from recruiting top drivers and staff to engineering car components to setting race strategies.

Taking charge of an F1 constructor in 2022 will require players to define their own management philosophy and seek to meet the expectations of their board of directors. While managing their budgets effectively, team leaders will need to balance short-term gains against long-term progress. New components will need to be designed and manufactured for the current car, while keeping an eye on the following year’s design. Players putting their stamp on one of the ten official F1 teams in 2022 will need to invest in facilities, drivers, and key staff members.

This commitment to replicating the sport is emphasised by Frontier’s focus on offering a broadcast-quality presentation across race weekends, led by David Croft, Lead F1 Commentator at Sky Sports, whose iconic voice appears in-game alongside his fellow commentator and former Formula 1 driver, Karun Chandhok. As previously revealed, these are not the only familiar voices players will hear, as the voices of all 20 drivers from the 2022 season feature on an innovative team radio system, responding to the commands of their race engineers. A successful Team Principal will be expected to effectively manage tyre allocations, whilst charting a course to the podium in dramatic races that can change at any moment. Will players be the first to risk slick tyres on a rapidly drying circuit? Or will a poorly-timed safety car or red flag scupper expectations? F1 Manager 2022 presents a wealth of in-session data, offering Team Principals the ability to fine-tune their in-race strategies, as they influence the pace of each driver and manage their ERS deployment during key windows to shed those final vital tenths.  

F1 Manager 2022 is scheduled to launch this summer for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Steam and the Epic Store.
