F1 Manager 22 is one of the most comprehensive car racing and management simulation games that have ever been developed. The game lets the players take control of their team principals’ careers in Formula 1. The game is a complete management simulation with details, so it’s not easy to get your team to the top of the Formula 1 World Championship in F1 Manager 22.
With these features, the game managed to be one of the best-selling management simulations this year after it was released on August 30, and the interest in the game is increasing every passing day. If you are a newcomer too, you might need these F1 Manager 22 career mode tips.
Don’t Change Career Mode-Specific Settings
First, career mode settings affect the overall gameplay of the players and include options such as letting drivers switch teams during the season, manual management of research and development, and so on. If you don’t have any special plans, we recommend leaving these settings as they are.
In this way, you can enjoy a more realistic experience. Moreover, these settings will not make the game easier or more challenging for players who are going to play the career mode for the first time. You may want to change the player resource accumulation rate if you would like to play on the difficulty settings.
Shorten the Season Length
The Formula 1 World Championship 2022 includes 22 races that are held in different parts of the world. Although it sounds fun to manage every single race, we recommend keeping the race calendar at 16 races as a beginner in F1 Manager 2022. In this way, your career mode will be more manageable, and you can complete the season sooner. This will also help you to understand the basics of the game. After you learn the basics, you can switch the session length in the new season and continue with the original schedule.
Shortening the season length will let you take out six Grand Prix from your calendar. It is recommended to remove street circuits such as Azarbaijan, Monaco, and Singapore, which can be quite challenging for beginners.
Spend Time on Your Drivers’ Contracts
Although your success is dependent on every member of your team, drivers, without a doubt, play a larger role in your success than other employees. As a result, as soon as you start the game, you should check your drivers and make some changes to your team.
Drivers also have long-term and short-term contracts. Make sure that you sign long-term contracts with promising drivers who will benefit you. Also, don’t forget to send your scouts out to find new talent.

Accept Sponsor Goals That You Can Achieve
You will have sponsors in the game, which will significantly increase your budget. However, if you are unable to satisfy your sponsors, you will be unable to profit in the long run. This is why, rather than aiming for a high balance, aim for goals that you can actually achieve.
Rather than chasing after dreams that you can’t reach, it might be better to accept goals that you can reach with the help of sponsors.
Don’t Skip Practices
Although practice sessions seem boring, you shouldn’t skip them. As a matter of fact, you can’t set the practice sessions as you want in the career mode. But, you can always fast forward your career and skip these sections.
On the other hand, we don’t recommend doing so. Practice sessions have great importance in F1 Manager 22, and they give you a perfect opportunity to create your best car setup. You will also give up potential resource points by skipping these practices. Considering that F1 Manager 22 is a manager game, you don’t want to miss any opportunity to improve your team’s skills.
Be Prepared for Changing Conditions
F1 Manager 2022 features dynamic weather, and the weather may force you during the race. For example, even if the race starts with nice and sunny weather, you may encounter rain later in the race. So keep your strategy ready for rainy weather. Or, the safety car that enters the late laps of the race may give you an opportunity to switch tyres to soft.
As a result, whenever you encounter something new, you must attempt to adapt to these changes. Of course, restarting the race is another option. However, we believe that the majority of players will not prefer this method.
By attempting to adapt to changes, you can learn from your mistakes and build a better team in the long run. Sometimes all you need to do is to pause the game and consider a solution.
Check Out the Upgrade Constraints
Upgrading your vehicle is very important in F1 Manager 2022. Because the game is so detailed, there are many ways to improve your car.
In particular, some factors, like the circuits you are going to race on and the weather are the most important things you need to consider while upgrading your car. If you don’t improve your car according to these factors, your opponents will easily overtake you on the track, even if you have the best drivers.
Upgrade The Basic Components First
The preceding tip doesn’t imply that you should avoid upgrading basic components. Indeed, we recommend that you do so as soon as possible. Players can significantly improve their performance by focusing on the fundamentals first.
This is more effective than making costly car improvements to your vehicle. The sequence of these components is also important. It is recommended that you begin with the larger and more important components, such as the chassis and underfloor.
The upgraded suspension unit will be rewarded in the first race, which will take place in Bahrain. As a result, you do not need to invest in upgrading your suspension at the start.
