    "No other game comes as close to emulating the sight and sounds of the real Grand Prix."

    Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be one of those 26 drivers, revving on the grid, waiting for the Green light to start off on a mayhem of crashing of gears, smoke, roaring engines and burning rubber?

    Well strap on your seat belt, because simulation specialists MicroProse and race-game veteran Geoff Crammond have teamed up to engineer the only complete Formula One Grand Prix simulation!

    • All sixteen international Grand Prix tracks are accurately re-created in stunning 3-D
    • Each car handles exactly like a Formula One car. You adjust gears, brakes and wings to maximise your racing chances
    • Five levels of difficulty and six major driving aids help you learn the intricacies of Formula One driving gradually
    • Race in practice and qualifying sessions, before challenging for the season's Drivers' and Constructors' Championships

    "Put simply, it's sensational. No other game comes as close to emulating the sights and sounds of the real Grand Prix. A triumph of both programming and design, Formula One Grand Prix isn't so much leading the pack as lapping it."

    [Captions]

    Complete televisual coverage of every car in each race allows you to view the action from anywhere around the track.

    Your pit crew will fit your choice from six different compound tyres in timed pit stops.

    Take your place amongst 35 drivers from 18 teams competing for 26 places on the starting grid.
