Full Statement/Release

Formula 1. Management games. High-fidelity simulation games. I like these phrases individually. I really, really, really like them a lot when they’re all used together!

Motorsport Manager scratches the itch to some degree, but we haven’t really had a proper Formula 1 management game since Microprose’s Grand Prix Manager and GPM2 in the late 1990s. It’s about time we get a new one. Just wish they’d timed it a little better to coincide with the big changes in F1 from 2021.


As a big Frontier Dev fan, this intrigues me very much. The level and depth of their sim titles is just insane.


Agree 100%! Just grumpy as heck now that I know about it but have to wait 2 looong years for a release. :neutral_face:
