Game description: Only 22 drivers on the planet possess the talent and skill to pilot an F1 car. Are you one of them? Hungry for raw power, lightning-fast acceleration, and white-knuckle cornering? Then take a seat in the cockpit of a real F1 car and feel the rush of turning on a dime or going from 0 to 100 MPH in the time it takes you to read this line.
The game's "arcade" mode followed a similar line to that of Formula One 2000, although incentives were now offered in the form of upgrades to the player's car. A new mode—"Challenge" mode—was introduced. In Challenge mode, players were given a lap around Spa-Francorchamps in Jenson Button's Benetton B201.
