F1 Manager 2022 Steam/Frontier Developments

F1 Manager 2022 received a major patch today. Update 1.8 brings new features, gameplay tweaks, and a plethora of bug fixes and improvements.

The patch has made adjustments to tire performance deltas, degradation rates, and performance during degradation for all compounds. These adjustments have been applied to every weather type as well.

AI strategic behavior during wet weather conditions is improved as well. Now, both Steam Deck and Steam Big Picture mode support on-screen keyboard.

Check out the highlights of the update below.

  • Updated fuel delta display to improve readability and stability. Fuel delta is now measured in kilograms (KG) and is relative to the expected fuel load at the current point in the race
  • Updated behavior of backmarkers and slower-moving cars, so they move aside more effectively when required
  • Further adjustments to car part development focus and attribute trade-offs to help balance player progress vs. other teams
  • Improvements to car behavior when racing side-by-side, reducing instances of unnecessary slowing and concertina effect
  • Improvements to AI strategic behavior during wet weather conditions
  • Fixed an issue where the Safety Car would pull aside to let cars pass by if the race leader entered the pits
  • Fixed an issue where saving on a specific screen would cause all 20 cars to appear during Q2
  • Added super-wide monitor support, including fix for gameplay UI appearing in the center of the display
  • Minor adjustments to starting car performance, starting Facility levels, and board performance expectations for a small number of teams to align with their real-world performance (will only take effect in new saves created after this update is installed)

  • Fixed multiple crashes caused by various events, including invalid qualification grids and tyre types
  • Fixed instance of hard-lock when changing stint compound type to a compound the player has run out of in Strategy View
  • Fixed multiple reported soft-locks and progress blockers in the tutorial sequence
  • Fixed an issue where tyres would sometimes appear duplicated in cutscenes
  • Stopped instances of rain passing through the ceilings of pit buildings
  • Fixed a soft-lock when opening the Options menu during some cutscenes
  • Reduced instances of major garage reactions to minor race incidents, such as a car running wide
