a few off us are playing this game

i like it so far, only did like 2.5 races :p the 0.5 race being this tutorial one

i started in the asian pacific super cup and its not going so well only 1 point after the 1st 3 races
in the 3rd race i should have gotten 4th but i messed up the pit strategy zo ended up with 0 point again.

but round four is looking good. bad practice makes good for super Qualify P1 :D

any one found a few tips and tricks for this game?

Drivers are worth quite a bit. I started in the lowest series with the worst team, and in the first season, I got lucky with a bunch of votes, and now everything but the brakes and suspension are spec parts. Invested all my money into a good driver, and I'm leading the championship with over 20 points now :D

During the races it seems like you can gain a lot of positions by staying out a bit longer, and having your drivers push hard after everyone else pitted.

I don't own it yet, but I'll definitely plan to buy it next month or so. Anyway, I don't expect too much because I haven't played a good motorsport manager since F1 Manager Professional.

I started in the European series with the black and yellow team and it's going OK, I often find reliability is a big problem for me because I have to spend an extra 10-25 seconds in the pits over the course of a race due to something breaking

Telling your drivers not to push as much helps that a bit, and also improving the reliability is basically a must after designing new parts, before using them.

You haven't missed anything. As said, only the F1 Manager Professional was good, and that was released in the late 90s.

There were a few other good ones in the late 90s, early 2000s (Grand Prix Manager, and another one similar to that), but mostly crap in recent years. Even though this one's quite a bit on the casual side, it's still quite fun.

I also played MSM (https://www.motorsportmanager.de/) a couple of years ago. This is actually quite good, especially because it is MMO and a good strategy is always hard to find, but you have to be online every three days at a certain time to manage your team through a race to be successful in a long term and that's why I quitted because although it was quite good it wasn't good enough to make me change my daily schedule for it.

If it's just on the casual side, but has quite a lot of managing options (building cars, negotiate with sponsors, define complex strategies) it'll be the right one for me.
