If you want to dominate the season, you’ll need to continually improve your car’s performance by hiring engineers to design, manufacture, and test new parts.


F1 Manager 2022 engines

Car parts in F1 Manager 2022 are split into two categories: aerodynamics and powertrain. Aerodynamics covers parts such as the chassis, front and rear wing, sidepods, underfloor, and suspension.

You can also purchase and replace powertrain parts such as the engine, ERS, and gearbox, as well as choose an engine supplier – but only if your team doesn’t already produce its own powertrain.


Alpine, Red Bull, Ferrari, and Mercedes manufacture their own powertrains, so you can’t change the engine supplier in these teams.

Each powertrain has several attributes to consider, from power and fuel efficiency to thermal resistance and annual costs.

Although these figures are not final, the Car Development video gives us an idea which teams have the most powerful, efficient and expensive engines.


With a power rating of 95%, Ferrari's powertrain offers high performance but has lower fuel efficency and thermal resistance. It's also one of the most expensive, with an annual cost of $20,000,000.

Costing half as much as Mercedes and Ferrari, Renault is one of the cheapest engine suppliers with an annual cost of $10,000,000. It's also one of the most efficient, with a fuel efficiency rating of 65%. However, Renault's powertrain has the lowest gearbox durability at 35%.

Red Bull Powertrains

Current leader of the 2022 F1 Constructors' World Championship, Red Bull Powertrains offers the most powerful engine out of the current suppliers, with a 100% power rating.

However, it has the lowest ERS durability out of any supplier, is the least fuel-efficient, and has a high annual cost of $15,000,000.

Mercedes' powertrain is a great all-rounder, with a 90% power rating, 55% thermal resistance, and 45% ERS durability. This resulted in a best team finish of first place.

But with an annual cost of $20,000,000, it's one of the most expensive engine suppliers and also has comparatively low gearbox durability.
