Here's our F1 Clash guide that will help you win.

our guide F1Clash will teach you the best strategy in the game and give you some tips and tricks that will come in handy in challenging situations. If you're fighting to beat your opponent, don't worry. You are not alone. F1Clash sounds simple enough, but there are a lot of backend mechanisms you should know about if you want to get on a winning streak.

Gameplay overview

F1 Clash (formerly F1 Manager) by Hutch games is a real-time management game where you face off against players in real-time trying to gather more racing points than your opponents. It's an officially licensed game, which means it has all the official cars and drivers you can use. Whether it's Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes W12 or Max Verstappen's RB16 Redbull. The choice is in your hands.

The game has only one main game mode, 'Duels', in which you face off against another motorsports manager like you. The objective is to put your cars ahead of your opponent's. In addition to 'dueling' repeatedly, the game wins a 'Grand Prix event', which follows the real-world F1 schedule.

Overall, F1 Clash gives you the feeling of being a manager of an F1 team. The game is quite realistic and the mechanics are the same as the real world motorsport event; whether it's the race, the safety car, the types, the car updates, the drivers or literally anything else.

Tip #1: Best strategy for winning races

we play F1Clash since 2019 and we realized that in almost every race we go forward with the minimum stop strategy we increase our chances of winning the race. The concept is quite simple, you try to save time spent at a pitstop, which means you get a 15-20 second advantage over your opponents.

It might seem like you're losing places at first, but don't worry. During the second half of the race, when players start betting, you will outrun most of them. This is one of the crucial tips to remember in our F1 Clash guide!

Note: This strategy may not work on tracks with long tracks and races where it starts to rain. Here, you will basically have to switch to a two-stop strategy.

Tip #2: The first corners decide the results

As in real F1 racing, the first corners of the lap will decide the winners most of the time. In the first few turns, you can gain 5-8 positions, but at the same time, you can lose a lot as well.

Our tip for the start of any race is to get a boost at the start and try to gain as many positions as possible in the first 3-4 corners. After that, switch to normal speed as you don't want the tire to wear out too quickly.

Tip #3: Fuel Management

If you don't run out of fuel when you cross the finish line, then you haven't used 100% of your car. Fuel management is just as crucial as tire management in F1 Clash. Here are some of the situations in which you should use boosters:

  • First 3-4 corners on the first lap.
  • When the driver needs help overtaking.
  • When the path ahead is empty.
  • On the straight, to overtake cars leaving the pitlane.
  • Last two laps of the race. (Especially on the final lap)

Avoid using boosts in all other situations, or you will end up running out of fuel and being disqualified from the race.

Tip #4: Choose the right tires

Choosing the right tires is key to winning races, so we had to mention it in this guide. F1Clash. Your tire selection should be based on your strategy. 

If you're going ahead with a minimum-stop strategy, you'll want to choose long-lasting tires, medium tires. If you want fast laps and a two-stop strategy, soft tires are the key. Lastly, if it's raining, you should obviously choose wet tires.

Tip #5: Avoid double stacking

Stacking is when you call both cars to the pit stop, back to back. If you're new to the game, don't do it, as the second car that arrives at the pit will have to wait a long time for its turn, wasting precious time.

If you're new to the game, your car won't be upgraded enough. For example, in series 1 and 2, most players have an average time of 8 to 10 seconds for a pitstop. In such a long pitstop time, it's impossible to call both cars without wasting time.

You can try double stacking when your cars are upgraded and the average pit stop time drops to 3-3,5 seconds (stacking is super fun, you should definitely try it once your cars are upgraded enough).

Tip #6: Do your best on the last lap

You don't have to worry about the condition of the car or the tires on the last lap. So give it all you got on the last lap. It's your last chance to win as many positions as possible.

Tip #7: Keep an eye on your cars

No F1Clash, you play as a team manager and not as a driver. Which means the race is done automatically. You are responsible for creating favorable conditions for your team. But that doesn't mean you can sit back and relax after setting the strategy. 

Always check what your drivers are doing in the race. Sometimes when they are trying to overtake they may need a boost to do this successfully. So be on the lookout and give them a boost when they need it.

Tip #8: Upgrade your car

Nothing can beat a car that is too fast. Make sure you upgrade your car whenever you have enough coins. 

You can't lose, regardless of what tips and tricks or strategy your opponents use if your car is simply a lot faster than theirs.

This concludes our F1 Clash guide. Remember these tips and tricks and implement them on your next run, and you're sure to get good results. So let the winning streaks begin.
