Frontier's first attempt at a Formula 1 management game arrived with mixed reviews last year, but when is the F1 Manager 2023 release date?

Featuring strong visuals and a good amount of detail, plenty of fans were delighted by F1 Manager 2022, but others were less impressed.

Anticipation is high to see how Frontier will evolve its initial title and move it forward for F1 Manager 2023. But when are we likely to be able to play? Let's take a look!

F1 Manager 2023 Release Date

Last year's debut title arrived in late August, and included five days of early access for digital pre-orders.

This was almost two months after the release of Codemasters' F1 22, and we are likely to see a similar pattern for this year.

With the expected F1 23 release date in late June/early July, we fully expect Frontier to follow last year and go with a late August release again.

Not only would this give players the chance to get F1 23 out of their system, but it is also a down period for the other great sports management title - Football Manager.

Early access

We fully expect F1 Manager 2023 to have some form of early access again this year.

It may not be a full five days and instead come down to the more usual three, but it will definitely be there.

Whether this is tied to pre-orders or to a premium edition of the game we don't yet know, but it should be there.

F1 Manager 2023 features

While F1 Manager 2022 was good at launch there were a few issues like DRS trains and safety car unlapping that had to be ironed out in post-launch patches. We expect those to be in F1 Manager 2023 from day one. But what else?

Well, it would be good to move teams within your save. That way you can take Haas all the way to the front of the grid, and then move on and do it again with someone else while retaining your universal history.

Better visibility for previous results would be great so that you can see who won where and what the full outcome of each race was.

Likewise tracking records such as when your driver passes a historic driver in wins or podiums would be amazing.

And finally, multiplayer would be outstanding. Getting onto the same grid as your friends either in a full save or a one-off "equal performance" race would be fantastic. Frontier would have to lock the race time multiplier so that every player is in sync with each other, but that should be simple enough.
