F1 2022 Pirelli Hot Laps: All details right here

F1 22 Pirelli Hot Laps

The next EA SPORTS F1 22 game will include a revamped tyre model, adjustments to the My Team managerial option, and cross-platform online play after launch.

This is in addition to the current Formula 1 season with fresh cars, races, and lineup. For the first time, road cars will be featured.

Pirelli Hot Laps are when a professional driver leads invited guests, such as celebrities, journalists, and dignitaries, around an F1 track in a performance-oriented road vehicle throughout the course of a race weekend.

The road cars in use are linked to automotive companies that are participating in Formula 1 in some way.

Pirelli Hot Laps in MyTeam and Driver Career

You’ll be invited to participate in an F1 Pirelli Hot Lap challenge after progressing through a My Team or Driver Career in between race weekends.

There will be two different challenges to choose from. So it might be a drift challenge or an average speed challenge. You’ll be driving a road-going supercar around an F1 track in either case.

Apart from a bronze, silver, or gold score, they can also give you with extra team revenue and driver praise, though neither in large amounts. When in My Team, you can win $100,000 in cash and $1,000 in driver acclaim, but in Driver Career, you can only win $1,000 in driver acclaim.


F1 22: Pirelli Hot Lap challenges

In the F1 22 game, there are 40 Pirelli Hot Lap Challenges. There are three difficulty levels to aim for: normal, challenging, and hard.

F1 22: Pirelli Hot Lap challenge types

Average Speed Zone, Drift, Checkpoint Challenge, Autocross, Time Attack, and Rival Duel are the six different types of F1 Pirelli Hot Lap challenges in F1 22.

  • Autocross
    Complete a section of track in a certain amount of time while also driving through all of the ‘gates’ that have been set up around the venue by planting cones.

    A five-second time penalty is imposed for hitting a cone, while a ten-second penalty is imposed for missing a gate.
  • Average speed zone
    Drive as fast as you can around small pieces of track, striving for the maximum possible average speed. For instance, in the first sector of Spa-Francorchamps in the rain in a Ferrari F8 Tributo. 100 mph for gold, 96 mph for silver, and 92 mph for bronze.
  • Drift
    Drive sideways in a controlled manner around an F1 circuit as much as you can before a timer runs out. You receive points for effectively drifting, and your score is the sum of your points at the end of the lap.

    The goal is to get as many points as possible. For example, gold is worth 3,000 points, silver is for 2,000 points, and bronze is worth 950 points.
  • Checkpoint challenge
    Drive around a track in a certain amount of time. The distance you’ve driven during that period is calculated. The longer you drive, the more you’ll notice.
  • Time attack
    Simply beat the goal time over a number of laps. On the regular difficulty setting, two laps of Miami in the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series in under 4:40 for gold, 4:52 for silver, and 5:08 for bronze.
  • Rival duel
    Beat the goal time over a number of laps. On the regular difficulty setting, two laps of Miami in the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series in under 4:40 for gold, 4:52 for silver, and 5:08 for bronze.

    You race against an AI-controlled opponent in an identical vehicle on a small section of track. This is divided into rounds, with winning rounds assisting you in completing the goal. Three-round victories for gold, two for silver, and one for bronze.

How to access Pirelli Hot Lap challenges in F1 22

They appear in the My Team or Driver Career modes in between races, as well as in the team hub menu and the ‘overview’ tab following a race event. Outside of the career modes, you can go to the ‘solo’ tab of the main menu and manually select or re-play any of the tasks.

To unlock supercars in F1 22 you can use Supercar Tokens. When you unlock a supercar, you can view it in your F1 Life section as well as one of the Supercar Bays. In the Time Trial game mode, this is also the only way to drive a supercar. You can drive them on any circuit in the game once they’re unlocked, but you can’t arrange up a supercars race in Grand Prix mode.

Here is another cool part, you can drive two official safety cars in F1 22, but only if you purchase the game’s Digital Champions Edition or the optional F1 22 Champions Edition Upgrade Pack DLC, the price of which has yet to be revealed.
