F1 Manager 2022 Update 1.11 Patch Notes: Huge changes set to impact races

After an update to F1 22 yesterday, now it's the turn of Team Principals as the F1 Manager 2022 Update 1.11 Patch Notes have arrived!

This new update WILL apply to existing saves, so there will be no need to start all over again.

Let's see what Frontier has for at-home managers!

There are a lot of balancing changes to DRS, slipstream, and dirty air in this update.

But perhaps the biggest change for all those Road To Glory saves is unlapping.

The safety car procedure has been updated to allow lapped cars through when appropriate. Unlapping behaviour under green flags has also been improved.

There are plenty of other updates too, so let's take a look at the full patch notes.

F1 Manager 2022 update 1.11 patch notes

These are the complete update patch notes from Frontier!


  • Updated Safety Car procedure to allow lapped cars to unlap themselves, when appropriate
  • Updated overtaking behaviour to allow cars to unlap themselves in normal race conditions, when they demonstrate sufficient pace compared to the car on the lead lap
  • Reduced strength of DRS performance

  • Increased effective range of slipstream, meaning that following cars will be affected by slipstream at greater distances behind a leading car
  • Increased effective range of ‘dirty air’, meaning that following cars will be affected by dirty air at greater distances behind a leading car
  • Added ‘Aerodynamic Balance’ option to the Settings Menu, under the Gameplay tab. This option allows players to choose between the “recommended” setting, featuring all the aerodynamics balance updates in Update 1.11, or the “original” setting, in which those changes will not be active. After updating to 1.11, all players will default to the “recommended” setting. Players can only change between these settings when they are in the Headquarters or Main Menu screens; changing this option will not be available during the Race Weekend.


  • Resolved issue causing unintentionally inaccurate weather predictions in the ‘Track Condition’ areas

Race Simulation
