The US Grand Prix weekend provided a spectacular showdown between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, with the seven-time World Champion finally taking the fight to his rival.
Only a limited number of laps remained in the race, preventing Hamilton from securing victory. However, in this week’s F1 Manager 2023 Race Moment, you have the opportunity to rewrite history and lead Hamilton to that elusive 2023 win.
Reliving the Thrills of the US Grand Prix
The US Grand Prix, while not the most heart-pounding race, had its fair share of excitement.
It featured crashes, penalties, and retirements, and Max Verstappen had to battle his way to the front of the grid.
In what should have been a routine win for the Dutchman, Lewis Hamilton posed a formidable challenge.
Despite a questionable strategy call from his team, Hamilton demonstrated incredible speed towards the end of the race, rapidly closing the gap to Verstappen. With a few more laps, Hamilton might have seized victory.
Your Opportunity to Make a Difference
This week’s F1 Manager 2023 Race Moment focuses on the second half of the US Grand Prix.
Verstappen and Lando Norris have made their pit stops, propelling Lewis Hamilton into the race lead.
The outcome now depends on your decision: Will you bring Hamilton in for a fresh set of tires, or will you follow Mercedes’ strategy and opt for a one-stop race?
Here’s the complete description for the “Back in the Saddle” moment:
“Lewis leads halfway through the US Grand Prix. Max and Lando have completed their pit stops, and it’s time for you to make a strategic choice. A two-stop strategy is inevitable, and you have two tire compounds at your disposal.
Your challenge is to guide Mercedes back to the top step of the podium.”

Despite Formula 1’s surging popularity, the F1 Manager series faces challenges in gaining traction. To delve deeper into the impact of its ambitious goals and constraints, you can explore the details here.
