How to use My Team Icons in F1 23

A recurring feature of the yearly Formula 1 video games of late, My Team Icons are bonus digital items received for, usually, purchasing a fancy edition. In F1 23, eight are included as part of the Champions Edition, alongside other items and early access.

What are My Team Icons?

My Team Icons are in-game characters from F1’s history, recreated within F1 23, for use with the My Team managerial mode. You can assign former real-world driving legends to your own fictional team.

How to select My Team Icons within My Team

To access the Icons, once you’ve purchased the Champions Edition of F1 23 only, start a new My Team within the Career menu.

As you set-up your desired career options, towards the end, you will be promoted to enable My Team Icons.

Two options here: Use or Skip.

F1 23 Enable My Team Icons

Select Use, rather obviously, for the Icons to appear within the career. If you skip, they will not be present.

Once you’ve customised your driver, selected your engine supplier and customised your livery, it’s time to select a team-mate. You have the 2022 Formula 2 grid to select, or alternatively, this is where you see the Icons in use. Pick one as your team-mate here to see them on track.

If you don’t select an Icon, then they will not be in rivals teams on track. But, they are still part of the driver market, so come the end of your first season, you will have the option of signing one – provided you have enough cash to do so.
