The third F1 Manager game includes an exciting new mode for this year, with ‘Create A Team’ featuring for the very first time. ‘Race Replay’ mode returns too, giving fans the chance to rewrite history and improve upon real race results as different scenarios are released throughout the year.

Not only can fans lead one of the 10 official Formula 1 teams in the popular ‘Career’ mode, but for the first time in the franchise's history, players will have the option to create and lead their own custom team to victory, building a legacy alongside the sport’s greatest names as they orchestrate their ascent to the top of the podium.

How will you lead your Formula 1 team to championship success in F1 Manager 2024?

Customising elements of their team, players can curate their creativity to bring their dream designs to life, whilst negotiating sponsorship opportunities to ensure a steady stream of income to fuel their ambitions. Identifying up-and-coming talent to rise up the grid order or cherry-picking the biggest stars in the sport in the pursuit of immediate success, the choice is theirs to make before the covers are lifted on their championship challenger.

Critical to their team’s lasting success will be how players manage their development off the track, designing new car upgrades and driving innovation in the pursuit of immediate performance, or investing in an advanced headquarters to create a legacy and attract the envy of rivals.

F1 Manager 2024 introduces a new mentality system for drivers and staff, bringing individual personalities and demands to the fore as players aim to maintain their team’s motivations amidst the pursuit of glory and challenge for the sport’s biggest prizes.

Rival teams will provide a constant threat year-on-year, with enhanced AI closing the gap between players and their competitors both on and off the track, while the underlying threat of drivers and staff being poached means that a paddock shake-up is never far away.

As the lights go out, fans will direct every thrilling moment from new strategic perspectives, immersing themselves in the action from on-board cameras or assessing their next decision from above. Issuing commands to their drivers via their voiced race engineers, players will weigh up crucial strategy calls and overtaking opportunities as they seek victory, with improved racing behaviours blurring the lines between simulation and reality.

Success can slip away at any moment however, with the ever-present threat of a mechanical failure able to disrupt even the strongest of strategies, putting vital championship points at risk.
