Last update: Wednesday, September 7, 2022

During your initial days as an F1 manager, it is easy to start making mistakes or underutilize your team's potential. On this page of the guide you can find starting tips that broach the most important issues related to team management and the correct way of doing race weekends.

Do not look for the difficulty level settings in the game, because the level of challenge works differently

F1 Manager 2022 does not offer the typical difficulty levels such as easy, medium or high - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

F1 Manager 2022 does not offer the typical difficulty levels such as easy, medium or high. The level of challenge is determined by the team you've chosen - choosing a strong team will make matters easier, while managing a team that struggles because of lack of good drivers, budget, or advanced facilities will be hard.

The level of complexity of the game is always the same regardless of the team selected. There are two ways of proceeding - you can get more involved to get better results, or automate some sessions (e.g. training sessions).

Don't skip the tutorial - it will introduce you to the most important menus and how to play races

When starting your career for the first time, the game will recommend leaving tutorial messages on - keep them on, they will be useful - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

When starting your career for the first time, the game will recommend leaving tutorial messages on - keep them on, they will be useful. The tutorial messages are not a complete guide to the game, buy you'll get acquainted with the most basic things and all menus.

The first race serves as a tutorial - it will help you get acquainted with the course of a race weekend and help you prepare tactics for the team and show how to give orders to the drivers. From the moment you complete the first GP, the tutorial will become less intrusive and you will have more freedom to make decisions.

Make sure to save or pause if needed

Both options will come in handy during the game - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

Both options will come in handy during the game.

  1. Saving the game can help you record your progress before major changes (purchasing new facilities, modifying the set-up, negotiating with a new driver) or to save and reload qualifiers in search for better race position. Unfortunately, you cannot save a session while it is running and you must always complete it in one go.
  2. Pausing the game is useful, for example, at key moments of races and qualifiers. You can calmly analyze the situation and decide on tactics and send the right orders to the team.

Prepare yourself accordingly for each next Grand Prix

There are a number of steps you should take before a new racing weekend arises - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

There are a number of steps you should take before a new racing weekend arises. Here they are:

  1. Check the layout of the track and its specifics - based on this information, you can make initial changes to the settings of the car and install different parts that may fare better on the given track.
  2. Check the condition of the parts of both cars - The 3 most important parts here are subject to wear: engine, ERS, and gearbox. If they are worn, consider replacing the part. Unfortunately, parts are limited per season and exceeding the limit means a penalty that moves your starting position down.
  3. Set team goals for the race - These are linked to the team sponsors. You can try to fulfill the goals or create your own. The latter run the risk of losing money if failed, so it is safer to choose goals with a high probability of success.

You can simulate practices and get good, but not necessarily the best, results

Practice is the bread and butter of every race weekend - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

Practice is the bread and butter of every race weekend. You can take an active role in them or fast-forward them. The second option is not that bad if you want to focus on races. Practice is there so your drivers can learn the track better.

Fast-forwarding the practice may cause your team to be less prepared for the race, as practice is there for testing the car and preparing it for the given track. This may result in lesser Performance Bonus. We recommend taking an active role in practice especially if you want to prepare for a given GP e.g. after getting new parts. You can also reload your save if e.g. after fast-forwarding the practice, your parameters are low (e.g. less than 50%). .

During qualifiers, look for opportunities to enter an empty track

One of the most important things to remember during qualifiers in F1 Manager 2022 is to not leave the pitstop when the track is crowded, as there is a high risk of begin stuck or getting into an accident with slower drivers, cause of the AI problems with overtaking slower cars - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

One of the most important things to remember during qualifiers in F1 Manager 2022 is to not leave the pitstop when the track is crowded, as there is a high risk of begin stuck or getting into an accident with slower drivers, cause of the AI problems with overtaking slower cars.

In the strategic view menu in qualifiers you will find charts with predicted traffic on the track . Try to release your drivers when there are fewer vehicles on the track so that they can complete at least one quick lap in peace.

Set different strategies to your drivers

The game will always offer you 3 recommended race strategies based on practice and qualifier results - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

The game will always offer you 3 recommended race strategies based on practice and qualifier results. You can choose ready-made tactics, make some adjustments of your own, or prepare a completely new strategy.

We recommend choosing different strategies for each driver . This will prevent both your drivers from being at a disadvantage due to unforeseen factors (bad car setup, excessive tire wear, track accident, etc.). In addition, you will be able to react more easily and change your strategy further if, for example, you find that your tactics are doing well in a given race.

Help drivers during the race by giving them instructions

Racing in F1 Manager 2022 is not watched idly - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

Racing in F1 Manager 2022 is not watched idly. You can and must give orders to the drivers and the team . The most important of them are:

  1. Choosing the right moment for pit-stop - you cannot decide upon pit-stop breaks upfront, as the pace and conditions on track may affect the wear of your car. Don't call the drivers to the pitstop too late , as heavy tire wear can seriously impair their performance.
  2. Choosing an ERS Strategy - Some programs are better for attacking positions or good lap times, others for defending or reducing car wear.
  3. Choosing Race Pace - You can command drivers to drive aggressively and place a strain on the engine, or give them commands to drive conservatively and decrease engine wear. It all depends on the current situation on the track and the current capabilities of the car (percentage of tire wear, engine condition, etc.).

Don't use up too many tires before the race

In F1 Manager 2022 , and same as in the real sport , the number of tire sets available in a given Grand Prix is very limited - F1 Manager 2022: Begginers Guide - Basics - F1 Manager 2022 Guide

In F1 Manager 2022 , and same as in the real sport , the number of tire sets available in a given Grand Prix is very limited . The supply you receive must be enough for all sessions, i.e. practice, qualifiers, and the race itself.

Tire saving is especially important in qualifiers . Don't use a soft mix if you have a chance to qualify for Q2 or even Q3 on harder mixes. If the track conditions are stable, you can also take the risk of visiting the pitstop only once in a given part of qualifying. If you use too many sets of tires, you may run out of unused tires of a given compound in the race . This may force you to select a different mixture or, for example, to assume a slightly used one that will last for a smaller number of laps.
