Frontier Developments, the developers behind the upcoming F1 Manager game, will join the judging panel at the 2022 F1 in Schools World Finals in a new partnership with the competition.
The F1 in Schools World Finals will be held at the Silverstone Circuit between 9 and 15 July 2022.
Frontier Developments have also confirmed that the F1 in Schools World Finals will feature within the upcoming release of F1 Manager 2022, as a marketing opportunity for Team Principals to support STEM talent.
As well as judging at the event, the careers team from Frontier will also provide information to competitors on entry level positions available at their development studio in Cambridge, UK.
Andrew Denford, Founder and Chairman, F1 in Schools added: "We’re very excited to be linking with Frontier Developments and F1 Manager 2022 at this year’s Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals. I know that their judges will be blown away by the outstanding talent of the teams competing at Silverstone. Our competition has so much synergy with the game too, with our teams taking on roles and racing their own design of cars, developing strategies and making many decisions along the way, so I’m sure all the students will be keen to put their talents to the test as a Team Principal in F1 Manager 2022."
Chad Young, Director of Publishing at Frontier Developments said: "We are delighted to partner with F1 in Schools to support the excellent work they do in promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related subjects. At Frontier, we are regularly recruiting promising talent across our development and publishing teams, and we are very lucky to have a wealth of technical and creative expertise within the entire organisation, so ensuring that the next-generation have access to opportunities like the F1 in Schools competition is very important to us. We’re very excited to join the Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals 2022 as judges and to witness schools from around the world showcasing their skills."
