F1 is an Official Formula One Racing Game. There are two modes of play available: "Arcade", "Grand Prix". In both of these modes you complete a certain number of laps (4, 8, or 12) and select which circuit that you want to race on. The circuits include San Marino, France, Britain, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Japan, and Australia. Some circuits are easy, while some are difficult.

There are slight differences between the two modes. For instance, "Arcade" allows you to select the circuit in any order that you like, whereas "Grand Prix" only allows you to fine-tune your car before starting a race. You also need to race a circuit in the order that they appear on the circuit selection screen, but you can skip a track if you want.

F1 is a 1-2 player game, meaning that if you have another player handy, you can compete against each other.

Ayrton Senna

Ayrton Senna (then in McLaren) was absent from the game, most likely for his endorsement for Sega 's Ayrton Senna's Super Monaco GP II (which went to have his name), and the two McLaren drivers are Michael Andretti and Mika Häkkinen.

Both ran for McLaren in the 1993 season, but with Häkkinen replacing a under-achieving Andretti mid-way through the season.


Jim Tripp, your team mate, is probably none other than producer James Tripp.
