I noticed this earlier and thought what the hell for 60p its worth a punt. Its not a bad little game if i'm honest but as i have only done one set of qualifying and racing i'm somewhat limited on my review :)

It reminds me very much of igpmanager which i used to enjoy.

Might have to check out this one! Kinda bored of the games on my phone at the moment!

EDIT: For any other Aussies it's $0.99AUD on the play store

Downloaded it last night. So addictive out of the box!

Have only completed one race so far, finished 4th and 8th with my two drivers, was running second with 5 laps left but tried making it to the end with 1 stop, so near yet so far... *EDIT* Just won my second race - scored a 1-2 with a very risky strategy!

Race weekends themselves are a simple affair: 3 wing settings and 3 gearbox settings. So far it seems tyres are unlimited so I've gone with softs on each run, and during races you can give your drivers instructions to push, hold pace or conserve (we're used to that).

Options to upgrade your facilities, hire/fire staff, develop your car, attract bigger sponsors and a completely easy-to-use interface. Twitter-like emails from your fans, team members and fictional news websites. It's really quite engrossing.

I'd give this game 10/10. It's so simple and fun yet you can immerse yourself for hours. Races are sped up ever so slightly but given races are around 22 laps, you're done in around 10 minutes. Watching the live tracker to see how your drivers are doing is so much fun!

Played this game a year or so ago. Was properly obsessed with it at the time, it was great fun. Such a simple interface and so few simple adjustments and decisions to make, but it really makes it feel like every decision you make has a massive impact! Awesome way to waste time.
