F1 Manager is making a return for the 2023 season as F1 Manager 2023 is in the works from Frontier. Here’s everything you need to know about it. 

At certain points over the last few years, Formula 1 fans have been able to live out their dream by tapping into their inner Christan Horner and Toto Wolff, directing their favorite F1 teams. 

That has, for the most part, been in the F1 simulation games, but things got a little more in-depth during the 2022 season with F1 Manager. The much-hyped game allowed players to get deep into the nuts and bolts of running an F1 team as Team Principal, with everything down from the research and development of parts, scouting future drivers, and making a multitude of important in-race strategy calls. 

Naturally, there were a few bumps in the road with regard to glitches – especially with tire management and DRS trains – but Frontier are returning with another installment as they’re launching F1 Manager 23. Here’s what you need to know. 

Is there a release date for F1 Manager 2023?

In terms of a concrete release date, the devs have confirmed that F1 Manager 23 has a release date of July 31.

Like pretty much every game these days, there will also be an early access period for those who buy the Deluxe Edition. This will be four days prior to the actual release day, so you’d be able to access the game from July 27.

It also lines up with the Belgian Grand Prix weekend, so you’ll be able to compare your skills to real-life professionals.

Will F1 Manager 2023 be on PC & Console?

Just like last year’s game, F1 Manager 2023 will be released across a range of devices including on PC on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Once again, there will also be a console release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and Xbox One. 

What teams can you manage in F1 Manager 2023?

While the mainline F1 games allow you to create your team for career mode, F1 Manager is still limited to the current crop of cars on the grid. 

Each comes with its own unique level of difficulty and objectives. If you start as Red Bull, you’re going to be tasked with winning it all. Start with Williams and it’ll just be about getting into Q3 and potentially competing for points. There is something for everyone. 

Drivers now have a new ‘confidence level’ that will impact their ability to make moves mid-race and throughout the season as well. This confidence will be key in how you strategize and ask them to operate during a race. You may just push some past their breaking point – literally.

  • Red Bull
  • Ferrari 
  • Mercedes
  • McLaren
  • Alfa Romeo
  • Alpha Tauri 
  • Williams
  • Alpine
  • Aston Martin
  • Haas

Driver confidence levels now impact moves – just like Max Verstappen diving down the outside.

Of course, all the tracks and race weekends from the ongoing Formula 1 season will be included in the game – including the brand-new Las Vegas track.

If there are any more changes to come, we’ll update this page. So, keep checking back for more!
