On this page of the game guideF1 Manager 2022, you will find the answer to the question can you find the option to change the difficulty level. We also explain what other ways there are to make gameplay easier and get extra help.
Team selection instead of difficulty level selection
In F1 Manager 2022 you will not find the typical difficulty level settings, e.g. low, medium, or high difficulty. You can make the gameplay easier or harder for yourself in other ways -by choosing to lead a strong or weak F1 team.
Strong teams include Mercedes, Red Bull, and Ferrari. Choosing any of these teams will guarantee you a very competitive starting car, great drivers, and extensive team facilities. You still need to make good decisions related to further development of the team or correct GP weekends, but you will nevertheless have an easier start.
Weak teams include Williams, Aston Martin, and Haas. Choosing any of these teams may make your struggles more difficult, although it is worth noting that Aston Martin has a bigger budget than its competitors at the end of the pile and this will allow you to spend more. You must nevertheless reckon with having at least 1 mediocre driver and an uncompetitive car to boot.
The remaining teams are middle of the pack (the so-called midfield). Deciding on any of them should guarantee you a balanced level of difficulty - you will be able to fight for points from the first race, but slow team development and skillful improvement of driver's skills will be required.
F1 Manager 2022 has a tutorial (First Time Guidance), which you can treat as an introduction to the main mechanics of the game. It is suggested by the game by default when you create your first career, and we strongly advise you to leave it on.
The function of the tutorial is primarily to familiarize you with the most important areas of team management. The game will not discuss all the menus right away, but only the ones that will be required to start your career.
The introduction also includes, among other things, the first race weekend - you will learn about all the sessions and their importance, and you will also be able to learn about the most important options related to planning and initiating race strategies, as well as issuing commands to drivers.
Hints from team members
Tremendous help in the game is messages from engineers and other team members, which you can view in the mailbox tab. You can learn from them, for example, about weak points of your car compared to competitors or skills of your drivers suitable for improvement.
The above tips are, of course, not the only help in terms of planning the development of the car, and you can also engage in deeper analysis, but with them, you can get quick help on what would be worth working on first.
