Create your own team, take charge of any of the 10 official F1® constructors or refine your skills as you relive the drama of real F1® races.

Cambridge, UK (20 June 2024) – Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, ‘Frontier’) today announced F1® Manager 2024, the officially licensed Formula 1® management game, will launch digitally for the first time on Nintendo Switch™ on 23 July* for a suggested retail price of £29.99/$34.99/€34.99. Players will experience the ultimate F1 management simulation experience with complete feature parity to other platforms, including the powerful livery and logo creation tools in the brand new Create A Team mode, allowing fans to turn their dream designs to reality.

For the very first time players can choose to take their decision making on the go on Nintendo Switch™, as F1® Manager 2024 brings Formula 1® fans closer than ever before to the role of a Team Principal. Taking the lead at one of the ten official F1® constructors or, new for 2024 - their own created team, fans will build their legacy both on and off the track as they strive for success across multiple seasons. Players choosing to create their own constructor can take total control of their team’s starting conditions to set their own challenge, before unleashing their creativity in expansive logo and livery creation tools as they bring their personal racing vision to life. F1® Manager 2024 offers complete feature parity on Nintendo Switch™, providing a brand new way to experience every detail of the quintessential F1® management game.

When the lights go out, fans will manage each driver’s race using a plethora of commands, with each communicated to them via over 70,000 official team radio lines from the real broadcast alongside the commentary team of Sky Sports F1 pairing David Croft and Karun Chandhok. Reacting to changing track conditions and race incidents, a well-timed strategy change can bring success to within reach, whilst a costly mechanical failure for a rival can create an opportunity for an even greater prize. Players can enjoy every race from a variety of broadcast-style camera angles in real-time, accelerate the action to 16x speed and react to key decisions, or even simulate them entirely.

Away from the roar of the engines at the team’s headquarters, players will plot their route to glory by directing the details of every decision. From hiring the personnel working tirelessly to develop a race-winning car and identifying new upgrade packages to push their team forward, to negotiating with sponsors and balancing their finances, every decision matters. F1® Manager 2024 introduces deeper management considerations with the new Mentality system, which brings each driver and staff member’s personality to the fore. Signing a star-studded line-up might help push their team forwards, but favouring one driver over another may leave them unhappy and susceptible to a poaching attempt by a rival team. Whilst in the long-term, fans can craft their own future by recruiting the hottest talent as Affiliate drivers who will continue to hone their racecraft in F2™ and F3™, before weighing up when to introduce them to their first F1 session.

F1® Manager 2024 will launch on July 23* on Nintendo Switch™, PC, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One for a suggested retail price of £29.99/$34.99/€34.99, with the Deluxe Edition available for a suggested retail price of £39.99/$44.99/€44.99. Deluxe Edition allows fans to expand their experience with five additional classically inspired patterns for use in Create A Team mode, whilst an additional five fictional Race Replay scenarios offer unique single-race challenges.

* F1® Manager 2024 will launch on Nintendo Switch™ on July 25 in Japan, Korea and Hong Kong.
