EA Sports released a new F1 22 video showing why you should race with manual gears.
As most experienced sim racers are aware it's more difficult to race with manual gears and takes quite a bit of time to get it right the first time compared to letting the game decide when to shift up or down, but the advantages are significant:
- Few tenths per lap faster overall than compared to autogears
- Better acceleration
- Better braking, especially in combination with engine braking
- Ability to use short shifting when needed
