In short: The next year the official Formula 1 mobile game was renamed before a licensed management simulator arrived.
F1 manager returns if F1 clashes
F1 Clash is the new name for the officially licensed mobile title, formerly known as ‘F1 Manager’. The new season of the game was launched yesterday with the drivers, teams and colors of the 2021 season cars.
According to the editors of Hutch, “Hutch is the result of extensive research conducted by the team on players, the new name, which has demonstrated an eagerness for fans to have an enhanced competitive experience.”
The name change comes after last year’s announcement that Formula 1 hired Frontier to publish a series of multi-platform management games starting in 2022. Perhaps ‘F1 Manager’ would be considered a more appropriate title for this.
F1 Clash is available for Android and iOS.
Expected Turkish GP decision
A few weeks after the Turkish Grand Prix was added to the 2021 F1 calendar, the return of the championship to Istanbul Park is in serious doubt due to changes in travel restrictions in the UK, where most of the teams are located.
Several options were discussed at Paul Ricard, including an extra race, the setting for the next round. However, a more realistic possibility could be that a replacement would not be found if the race did not progress.
Istanbul was chosen as a replacement venue for the canceled Canadian Grand Prix because the promoter was prepared to pay, Racefan understands. With most rounds of the 23 F1 race schedule expected to continue this year, the game does not need to host the race for free to ensure a healthy schedule. In that case, if Turkey does not proceed, a three-week hiatus between Baku and Paul Ricard is the most likely outcome.
Russell from drive to survival
The story of George Russell’s only appearance at last year’s Sakhiar Grand Prix at Mercedes seemed like an ideal meal for the third season of Netflix’s Drive to Survive, but it failed. Speaking to The Fast Lane Podcast, he revealed that a team from the program recently followed him in preparation for the fourth installment of next year’s popular series, and he understood why it was overlooked last year.
Apparently, the main story of George Russell came very late in the season and it was a bit difficult [do]This is what they told me. “
“That’s your excuse!” Joked “So I have them one. But I think in the fourth season there might be something else.”
