A Formula 1 racing game, officially acknowledged by the FIA F1 World Championship, containing the 16 World championship circuits of the day, ranging from Monza and the old Hockenheim to Monaco and the Hungaroring.

Car setup is highly detailed, reflecting real Formula One and the game's simulation basis. You will have to race in the wet, which means further setup modification to cope with the reduced grip. You can also edit the level of car damage, the pit-car radio, and whether the CPU cars can collide. There are also Battle and Time Trial modes, with your best laptimes recorded.

Version differences

The Japanese version had no FIA licence, and therefore all driver names are slightly "deformed". Even the photos are different from the European release of the game.

For unknown reasons, they also changed the introduction sequence for the European release. Instead of the real-time rendered intro, the Japanese version has a kind of slide show.
