    A well-made, in-depth, licensed F1 management game would be awesome.

    I'm confidently predicting that this isn't it, though.

    Apparently Motorsport Manager is the much better game to play. I'm sure this game will be fine for F1 fans who prefer more casual on-the-go games, though.

    I was kind of interested, but then I saw "Free to Play" which generally means pay to win or progress.

    So I'm giving it a miss.

    There is an MT mechanism - you can buy "bucks" for money, and spend them on upgrades or in-game coins (which can also be used for upgrades) - but I can't say it's bothered me so far. It spits coins and crates (with coins, bucks and upgrades in them) at you pretty regularly, but bucks are slower progress.

    I beat someone else's Lewis Hamilton (level 7 driver) with both my Albon and Stroll earlier, with pit "strategy". Hope he didn't spend any money on that!

    The race animation is super choppy though, and you really are guessing at some of the tyre/fuel "strategy".

    Though like all apps available there, this game's unplayable without online. Wish there's a paid app I can play offline.

    Agreed. Went back to a few mobile games last year and even the ones that were once good have been bought by a new publisher and they've added a tonne more micro transactions...

    You also need to have Facebook to have a game save if you want to have to option to switch device or it you want to continue after a clean install or reinstall of the app...

    I actually think it is a bit better than Motorsport Manager, but that is probably the age of the last version I played. The mechanics are roughly similar. I agree that the play to win hasn't bothered me yet. Tire strategy does matter, specifically there usually is 1 fast strategy and everything else is garbage. If your drivers are close to each other they share a pit space and the second car will have to wait to get their service.

    An offline mode would be nice, but it does make it more interesting when it is a real person you are racing. MM would get too predictable and easy to win.
