Review:

This is an ambitious strategy game that includes sponsorship, tyre selection and even setting up the car itself. The major annoyance is that there is a colourful but pointless kaleidoscope effect in between screens.

The race itself is presented by simple graphics and features a hilarious pit stop sequence where six mechanics appear to be performing a war dance around your car! It is painfully slow but passes the time for F1 enthusiasts.
