How to switch teams in F1 Manager 2023 

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, the headline aspect of v1.6 is the ability to switch teams. At the end of a season, and as long as your Team Principal Rating is high enough, you can choose to continue your F1 management career further up the grid. 

The Team Principal Rating can rise or fall based on players’ success in achieving short and long-term goals set down by their teams’ board. At the end of each season, players will be given an overview of teams interested in their services, which could mean a trip towards the back of the grid… 

F1 Manager 2023 v1.6 update new features 

The v1.6 update also updates Aston Martin, Haas, Mercedes-AMG and Williams cars, with new models for Aston and Haas. FSR and DLSS have also now been enabled for respective AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards on PC, with stability improvements and PC-specific game crashes now resolved. 

For new saves, some teams have had a change to their season objectives, with Mercedes demanding third place, while Alfa Romeo and AlphaTauri Team Principals need to aim for the lofty heights of eighth. 

The new F1 Manager 2023 update is available to download now on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Are you happy with the new F1 Manager 2023 v1.6 update? Would you like to see anything else added to the game? Let us know in the comments below.
