The Mexican Grand Prix may have had a predictable winner, but there was a surprise further down the grid. A sensational performance from the recently recovered Daniel Ricciardo saw the Australian finish in 7th place. This week’s F1 Manager 2023 Race Moment, Ricciardo’s Return, presents a what-if scenario for the Honey Badger.
Ricciardo’s Return Race Moment available now
After a mediocre performance at COTA, all eyes were on Daniel Ricciardo heading into the Mexican Grand Prix. With rumours swirling regarding the future of Sergio Perez, it was up to the Australian driver to stake a claim for the second Red Bull seat.
Perez crashing out on the first corner definitely helped Ricciardo’s case, but his own performance was one to behold too. Starting in fourth, Ricciardo finished in an incredibly impressive seventh place.
Not much more could be expected from Ricciardo, however this week’s F1 Manager 2023 Race Moment tasks players with taking Ricciardo even higher up the grid. Starting just after the red flag resulting from Kevin Magnussen’s unfortunate crash, Ricciardo’s Return challenges you to catch George Russell and maybe even finish higher.
The official description for Ricciardo’s Return is as follows:
“After a mid-race restart, Ricciardo and Tsunoda are P6 & P8... In the final stint, with Russell on degrading medium tyres, can Ricciardo catch him and steal a sensational finish at the Mexican Grand Prix?”
F1 Manager suffers from its own ambition
Slow sales for F1 Manager 2023 have resulted in Frontier laying off staff, but why has the F1 Manager series struggled to get off the ground?
With the popularity of Formula 1 growing like never before, bringing the first official licensed F1 management game seemed like an easy win, but as it turns out it’s been anything but a charge off the grid.
As it turns out, F1 Manager 2023 suffers from its own ambition. What makes the F1 Manager games so appealing is also what’s stopping it from becoming successful.
