With Frontier Developments’ F1 Manager 2022 just a few days away, here is a retrospective at the older, officially licensed F1 manager games.

All of them were released over 20 years ago and in many ways they’ve aged quite badly, but there’s also a lot they did well and features they’ve implemented that we’ve yet to see in an F1 game since. Everything from spying on other teams, to additional manufacturers to the banning and legalising of driver aids. In this video I go over what the Grand Prix Manager series, Grand Prix World and EA Sports’ F1 Manager did so well.
