This game, developed during an era when both racing and management simulation games were gaining popularity, stands out for its in-depth approach to the strategic and administrative aspects of Formula One racing. In F1 Manager, players assume the role of a team manager responsible for overseeing all operations of a Formula One team. This responsibility covers a wide range of activities, from the technical development of the cars and managing team finances to making strategic decisions during races. The game effectively captures the multifaceted nature of managing a high-performance racing team in the competitive world of Formula One.

Players must work on various aspects of the car, including the engine, aerodynamics, tires, and suspension. This system requires players to balance performance improvements with the financial constraints of running a team, adding a realistic layer of decision-making.

Financial management is another crucial aspect of F1 Manager. Players must budget for car development, staff salaries, and other expenses while also seeking sponsorships and managing income from race winnings. This financial balancing act plays a crucial role in the success of the team, as resources are key to maintaining a competitive edge.

Race strategy in F1 Manager is also complex and nuanced. Players must make decisions on pit stop timing, tire choices, and react to changing race conditions such as weather. These strategic choices can have a significant impact on the race outcome, highlighting the importance of tactical thinking and adaptability.

While it might not offer the high-octane excitement of a racing simulator, it provides a deep and rewarding experience for those interested in the strategy and management aspects of the sport.
