F1 Manager 2022 Patch Notes: Update 1.8

Here are the official patch notes for F1 Manager 2022 Update 1.8 that is now rolling out to all the supported platforms of the game:

  • Adjusted tyre performance deltas, degradation rates, and performance during degradation for all compounds, across all weather types
  • 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 behaviour 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 behaviour when racing side-by-side, reducing instances of unnecessary slowing and ‘concertina effect’
  • Improvements to AI strategic behaviour 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 centre 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)
General Stability
