F1 Manager 2022 is almost here and Frontier Developments is finally sharing more information about the upcoming management sim – which we can’t wait for. Alongside an exciting new gameplay trailer, showcasing the menus you’ll be looking at before a race and what race day will look like when aiming for the podium, it’s been revealed that F1 Manager 2022 will use the real race day sound of the race made up of real communications from Formula 1 teams. That’s what we call authentic!
During the Twitch stream that revealed the release date of F1 Manager 2022 and gave fans a first look at gameplay, executive producer Adam Woods confirmed that “race weekend communications from the [Formula One] teams” would be used to recreate authentic race weekends in-game.
The development team took these real race weekend communications and “chopped up pieces”, applying some sections to “some of the commands you can give in-game”. This feature may seem minor, but it will give players one of the most authentic Team Principal experiences: pilots will actively respond to your instructions, for better or for worse.
Elsewhere in the F1 Manager 2022 gameplay trailer and accompanying Twitch stream, Frontier Developments shares a look at the kind of data players are going to be able to wade through (and there’s plenty of it) and the kinds of challenges that players will compete over a race weekend and throughout a season.

F1 Manager 2022 players will have full control over the design, development and manufacture of their team’s car, as well as race weekend strategy and driver instructions. There will also be an element of the unknown for aspiring team managers, much like in real life. The weather can change in a flash and racing incidents that take a safety car out of pit lane will force you to change your racing strategy – and F1 Manager 2022 gives you complete freedom to do so.

Manager 2022 won’t have to worry about Jeff though – there will be full racing coverage from Sky Sports’ David Croft and former Indian Formula 1 driver Karun Chandhok.
