There was one point during last weekend’s Formula One in Barcelona where Red Bull had Daniel Ricciardo peel into the pits for a fresh set of tyres. It put him onto a three stop strategy and lost him the race. Ferrari followed him in, though, with Vettel coming in one lap later, and also meaning he couldn’t realistically challenge for the race win.
I’m sure I wasn’t alone in thinking that I could have made better decisions, and with Football Manager already under their wing, Sega are now publishing Playsport Games’ Motorsport Manager for PC this September.
It’s set to expand on Playsport’s original for Android and iOS, as they’ve built the game from the ground up, letting you lead a racing team, hire drivers, research tech, devise race tactics and so on. It plans on going into a lot of detail, with a 3D race engine to give you the full racing weekend, the ability to build your car from scratch during pre-season, and even the minutiae of voting on sporting rule changes.
Christian West, Founder and CTO of Playsport Games said, “As motorsport fans, we’ve been waiting to play a game like this for a long time. That was how the original Motorsport Manager for mobile devices came about. We wanted to take that experience to the next level by building an all new version of Motorsport Manager for PC with massively enhanced gameplay and unparalleled depth. With the help of SEGA, we’re hugely confident of delivering a management experience that fans of motorsport will absolutely love.”
