Aero is key to a car's performance in Formula 1, so who are the best F1 Manager 2022 Head of Aerodynamics in the game?
As Team Principal, you will need to build the most complete team possible. This includes the design team for the car, which is led by your Head of Aerodynamics.
You could have the best drivers in the sport, but if you can't design a good car for them, you won't be getting good results.
Head of Aerodynamics in F1 Manager 2022
The Head of Aerodynamics is arguably the most important member of your team. Aerodynamics dictates both how the car produces downforce and cuts down on drag.
It also affects the cooling of the car, something that we've seen become a real issue since the switch to E10 fuels this season.
Each Head of Aerodynamics has eight attributes that make up their overall rating. These are: Cooling, DRS Delta, High-Speed DownForce (DF), Medium-Speed DF, Low-Speed DF, Drag Reduction, Airflow Management, and Airflow Sensitivity.
This all feeds into the aerodynamic development of the car. The higher your Head is in each of these, the faster and more efficiently you will be able to develop each section of the car.
Signing the best around though, is anything but straightforward.
Firstly, they need to be interested in your team. That comes from doing well on race days and picking up big results. The better you are performing; the more staff will be willing to work with you.
So, don't think you can start at Williams and go poaching the Ferrari staff right away!
Then, you need to have the money. Heads of Aerodynamics can ask for a salary in excess of $2 million!
Fictional Heads of Aerodynamics
The real-life Heads of Aerodynamics for every team are in your game when you start. However, there are also fictional staff members that fill up the pool available to you.
Which ones you have available to you is random, though. There is a list that is randomly selected at the start of your save, so some of the better ones may not appear right away.
If you can't find the one you're looking for, make sure you stay patient and keep your eyes peeled for your dream Head of Aerodynamics!
