Long gone are the days of the glorious Grand Prix Manager. Hard to believe there isn't a market for it... anyone with good alternatives?

Why an alternative when GPM2 even has a 2014 MOD?

You can run GPM2 in within Dosbox in a current Windows PC. You will even find the game itself (legally I believe) to download on the Internet.

In GPM2 there's an rookie named "Alonso". I always wondered if this is the real Fernando Alonso. The game was released 96. I'm not sure if Alonso was that famous back then.

Anyway, loved the game. I will also try the new iOS Manager and report.

It could be, Alonso was doing quite well in karting in those years.

 

By the way, how surprising and excellent to see GPM2 still receiving such attention by fans. :up:

Never understood why a game developer can't just buy the rights to this game and give all the drivers fake names as not to upset FOM and sell it on steam

It's very good :) Certainly the best of its kind on the AppStore. I would recommend it.

It is a lot of fun and the presentation is excellent.  Well worth the asking price.

I remember the guys over at GPracegames had a interview with a certain Mr.Grabowski back when they where GPM2World, about helping out for a GPM3, but there was more than one hurdle. Wanting to, was not one of them.

F1 manager from EA Games.

Some guy is making the mods from 1990 until 2014 for it.

I echo this sentiment.  As an app game.  It is fantastic.    

 

I have long been hoping that we will get an official update to the much loved GPM2 but have came to the conclusion that the cost of making a Football Manager type official F1 game and the demand for it don't match up.   I've played a few motor sport managerial sims on the tablet and pc over the years and this one is by far the best.   A few tweaks here and there (the official drivers and the ability to poach other drivers/staff from other teams and a pool of GP2/3 drivers to add to your young driver proggrame) and you have the basic template for a very good official game that could be released as an app.   

 

Football Manager has a app priced at 7.99 that comes out each year.   Terrific value for the product imo.   It is a scaled down, basic version of the PC game and imo opinion a better one for the casual fan as the PC game literally takes days to complete one season.     F1 has constantly shot itself in the foot regarding it's attempts to reach the new generation with social media, apps and the like.    Hire who ever makes motor sport manager and use that template to make an official game.  With a bit of investment into the current template, it should not cost and arm and a leg to make now that some has found the way to make these games and easy on the eye.  It could very well be the game us F1 geeks have being crying out for.

It is not FOMs job to make video games.....

If you are going to play such a game clearly you are already an F1 fan.
