Realistic High-Potential Young Driver Signing Recommendations
As someone who loves to sign young prospects and develop them(honestly, I guess most manager game players feel the same, just like Football Manager players’ obsession with youth talents), I would like to bring a little more realism when it comes to signing a young driver as a reserve. The following shortlist started out as something I would personally use, but I thought maybe people would have similar ideas when playing the game, so I might as well post this here.
All drivers are marked as “Growth Potential High” in game
|Driver Name||Age||Starting Overall||Team||Relations with the Team|
|Dennis Hauger||18||69||Red Bull||Current member of the Red Bull Junior Team|
|Oliver Bearman*||16||65||Ferrari||Current member of the Ferrari Driver Academy|
|Frederik Vesti||20||71||Mercedes||Current member of the Mercedes Junior Team|
|Theo Pourchaire||18||71||Alfa Romeo||Current member of the Sauber Academy|
|Jack Doohan||19||72||Alpine||Current member of the Alpine Academy|
|Oscar Piastri||20||75||McLaren||2023 McLaren Driver|
|Ayumu Iwasa*||20||66||Alpha Tauri||Current member of the Red Bull Junior Team|
|Enzo Fittipaldi||20||61||Haas||Former member of the Ferrari Driver Academy, brother of Pietro|
|Logan Sargeant||21||70||Williams||Current member of the Williams Driver Academy|
|Felipe Drugovich||21||68||Aston Martin||Current member of the AMF1 Driver Development Programme *Driver ineligible for contract proposals at the beginning of the game, due to age and/or not having enough seasons raced in F2/F3|
I love the idea of bringing a team’s “homegrown” talent and developing them into future main driver, of course there are other options available, this only serves as a reference and are picked in the order of current overall. Hopefully this can make your career experience somewhat more immersive.
