F1 Manager 2022 has been given another tune-up by developer Frontier Developments, bringing the game up to version 1.9 with a set of minor hotfixes for PC (PlayStation and Xbox updates will follow).
Six weeks on from its release, the Formula 1 management sim has already received a couple of major revisions. The v1.8 update, for example, significantly addressed tyre degradation issues – meaning a one-stop strategy is no longer the quickest way to complete every race.
For v1.9, however, the developer has made tweaks to the way cars burn through fuel, minimising the chance of players and AI running dry mid-race.
Also, AI opponents are now less likely to make unnecessary pit stops in inclement conditions, an issue which led to immersion-breaking moments. After all, F1 Manager’s wet and intermediate tyres stand up pretty well to the rigours of Grand Prix racing.
Another minor issue regarding the game’s user interface on ultra-wide monitors has also been addressed. Selecting the ‘enable widescreen UI during sessions’ option led to players being unable to click on mid-race pop-ups, causing significant events like crashes, pit stops and weather changes to be missed.
