F1 23 & F1 Manager 2023: New Scenarios Available

F1 Manager 2023 Spa Starting Grid Scenario.jpeg
The Formula One Belgian Grand Prix saw another crushing display of dominance by Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing with the reigning World Champion taking his eighth win in a row and his tenth out of twelve races thus far. Fans can now aim to recreate his Spa win or try to alter history in the brand-new Spa Starting Grid scenario in F1 Manager 2023 - and F1 23 has also added a new scenario to its F1 Replay mode.

F1 Manager 2023 officially released on July 31st but had been available for a few days beforehand for those who bought the Deluxe Edition. The game promised to deliver new scenarios as the F1 season progressed, and it made good on this immediately: The race at Spa-Francorchamps is now available as a Starting Grid scenario, meaning the event can be replayed with its actual grid and conditions applied.

Is Verstappen's stellar season going to continue in your version of the Belgian Grand Prix? Is another driver going to pull out a surprising win? It is all in the players' hands as they are free to choose any team to complete the race. Maybe some strategic masterstroke can propel McLaren's Oscar Piastri, who showed promising pace during the weekend, to the front instead of his race ending on lap 1 already.


F1 Replay Adds Saudi Arabian GP​

Meanwhile, if F1 fans want to do the driving themselves, they can do so with a new F1 Replay scenario: The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is now available in F1 World, and similarly to F1 Manager's Starting Grid scenario, racers can pick anyone on the grid and try to alter or recreate the race from their actual grid spots, including objectives based on the drivers' actual finishing positions.

F1 23 will add new F1 Replay scenarios every week, so it still has some catching-up to do, but it means that fans can look forward to fresh scenarios frequently. Next up: The Australian Grand Prix, which saw no less than three red-flag periods - having added red flags to the game for its current iteration, it would even be possible to recreate those.

I actually bought F1 23 a couple of weeks ago having tried it whilst visiting Silverstone. Got to say I’m really enjoying just some casual hot lapping. Graphics look great, sounds good and nice to learn some new tracks.

The FFB was better than expected and found a nice profile in Truedrive to use. Last time I tried the F1 series was 2010, it’s come along way, in a good way and glad I picked it up. I won’t be buying it every year for sure, but a pleasant addition to the stable of racing games.
 
Did F1 manager fix any of the numerous and game breaking bugs people reported since launch or they just did the additional scenarios instead...?

I bought it too this year and really wanted to have a good time with it but the VR is awful i thought so sadly got a refund.

Fingers crossed for next year.
