Ahead of the Early Unlock launch of F1® Manager 23 Deluxe edition on July 27 we wanted to give you a sneak peek at the exclusive Race Replay scenarios available to you, depending on which version of the game you buy. Let’s get into it…
If you pre-order either Standard or Deluxe editions, you’ll unlock the following:
Smart strategy calls early in the race have accelerated Mercedes into a 1-2 position at Interlagos, but the Red Bulls are closing in fast with fresher tyres. Manage your tactics wisely to protect your lead and deliver a crucial victory for Mercedes.
Persistent rain has led to chaos in Spa! After a series of incidents on a wet track, Sargeant finds himself in P1, with Albon in P3. As the track dries out, make the right strategy calls to maintain your strong position and secure Williams a much-needed podium.
Haas have high hopes for Las Vegas in front of an American crowd. And, like a dream come true, a late safety car has left Hulkenberg in a fortunate position, with his fresh soft tyres giving him a pace advantage over the field. Channel Guenther’s tenacity and deliver the team's first podium.
Team Principals who purchase the Deluxe Edition will also gain access to TWELVE exclusive Race Replay scenarios, including Race Moments AND Starting Grids. Let’s take a look at those below…
Monza is a huge occasion for Ferrari as they race in front of their beloved fans. With Sainz missing this Grand Prix™, Italian reserve Giovinazzi is taking up the mantle. Starting from P5, help him build his confidence and deliver an impressive Ferrari debut by scoring a podium for the Tifosi.
After a successful qualifying, it has all unravelled for Red Bull in Austria. An early incident has ended Pérez’ Grand Prix™, and Verstappen’s tangle with Leclerc has left him limping back to the pits with damage. Recover Max’s race and reclaim a home victory for the team.
After cleverly undercutting the Red Bulls, Alonso is leading the Monaco GP. However, his early pit stop has left him on older tyres than the cars rapidly closing in behind. Block your rivals and sail to victory on this historic circuit.
These exclusive Starting Grids give you the opportunity to start a race with any team with the added challenge of some unique situations such as equal performance cars or extreme weather!
With all cars at equal performance, race results will be down to your driver's skill and the strategy you execute. Monza is famous for its high speeds and overtaking opportunities, so it’ll require a degree of aggression and braking conviction to get the best out of this track.
With all cars at equal performance, race results will be down to your driver's skill and the strategy you execute. At Silverstone, a track with open corners and plenty of room to race, overtaking and defending ability will be put to the test.
With a limited set of tyres to choose from, snaking through the Dutch sand dunes will be more of a challenge than ever. Each car has just one fresh soft, one fresh medium, and one fresh hard tyre ahead of the race start. Plan your strategy to use each one to the optimum and accelerate to victory.
Scorching temperatures in Qatar pose a predicament for all teams. Do they push on knowing their tyres may overheat? Or do they carefully manage their temperatures and avoid stops, while losing out on pace? With points on the line, tyre strategy could make or break your race.
It's a chilly day in Melbourne and all drivers are struggling to warm up their tyres. Pushing for pace could help increase temperatures but will wear tyres down quicker. On a cold track, any pit stops will be followed by slow warm up laps, so it will be a difficult balance to strike.
In Canada, the drivers are heading onto the track poorly prepared. On this tricky circuit, full of narrow hairpins and chicanes, increase their confidence and make strategic commands to set their race on the right path.
Defying the odds, a sudden downpour has happened just before the start of the Bahrain GP. In the wet weather, anything can happen. A slippery track might bring risks, but there are points up for grabs for any team that can make the most of this freak event.
With all cars at equal performance, race results will be down to your driver's skill and the strategy you execute. Barcelona is a technical circuit, with every type of corner to contend with. Overtaking may be difficult, so it’ll take accuracy, control, and timing to rise up the field.
With all cars at equal performance, race results will be down to your driver's skill and the strategy you execute. Take command of the race at this thrilling Japanese track as your drivers navigate its high-speed corners, curves and hairpins.
