Yesterday, Codemasters and EA released a video in which we took a ride on the new track in Miami. From the attached, we only managed to see that graphically the game has not changed too much and the sound of Ferrari is the same as last year's game.
We found out a little more details later when many F1 YouTubers posted their videos of racing on the new track. With the help of their representations, we learned that F1 22 introduces manual parking on the grid during the formation cycle. So far, the game has automatically taken control and perfectly placed the cars in the starting positions. The introduction of manual parking acts as one big plus as there are possible mistakes in setting up the car, which may depend on gaining or losing positions until the first turn. Also, if players park incorrectly, the game itself returns them to the starting position, but not to the ideal place.
The new mechanic is also an independent entry into boxing, that is, coming to one's mechanics. Turning to them in time before changing the tires will reduce the whole process, while late entry will prolong it. According to eSport drivers, the management of the cars has changed and the game now gravitates much more towards the right simulation. Tires have also changed, mostly in terms of heating and their consumption. Now it will be much harder to warm them up and players will not be able to immediately squeeze the accelerator pedal without caring about the effects of the cold.
Of course, the options for manual parking on the formation circuit and timely entry into the pits will be able to be turned off in the settings. At least 11 supercars are expected in the game, which we will be able to unlock through various events and drive in the Time Trial. Below you can read which are the supercars we will be able to drive:
- Aston Martin DB11 AMR
- Aston Martin Vantage F1 Edition

- Ferrari F8 Tribute
- Ferrari Roma
- McLaren 720s
- McLaren Arthur
- Mercedes AMG GT Black Series
