F1® Manager 2023 - Update 1.6

Hello folks!

We are very pleased to announce that Update 1.6 for F1® Manager 23 is rolling out now to all platforms! This update brings more stability improvements as well as addressing many community raised issues AND the much anticipated Team Switching feature is now available in-game!

Take your legacy further than ever before by building your Team Principal Rating with every successful season and use your reputation to attract the attention of teams higher up the grid. Or, secure a fresh start in the paddock after a poor season with a team lower in the standings.
