Welcome to another one of my FAQ's. As usual, I don't say a word about the game 
in the Introduction. I won't update the FAQ section not anymore after I release 
the complete version. But everybody can send me tips and questions. If they are 
big enough, I might consider updating it despite that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For a better review of Formula One 2001, you just have to look at
www.gamefaqs.com where I posted my better review of the game. It isn't perfect 
but it is decent.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall score: 8/10                  For a diehard gamer or F1  
Controls:      7/10                  fan (the sport) is this a 
Graphics:      8/10                  game worth buying and  	
Originality:   8/10                  certainly now it's  
Extras:        9/10                  available as platinum game. 
Sound:         8/10
Durability:    8/10
Difficulty:    high

I give Formula One 2001 (the game from Sony) an 8/10 because I think that the 
game has only one downside but it's a mayor one: the controls aren't good.

If you start the game without changing anything (or don't read the manual: this 
is something what many people do) you'll start the engine at the first red 
stoplight like the profs, you'll start and what happens then: a restart or 
worse. Now, you figured that out, you accidentally crash against the wall 
(nothing serious, it could also happen to you) and you want to ride backwards, 
you won't find the right button. The first time was when I was playing it with 
my nephew and we both crash, after ten minutes we discovered that you have to 
press L1 and push the left analogue stick backwards. 

The graphics are very decent and equal the frame rate from such games as F1 
2001 (the EA version). But it the graphics can still be better. Games as Gran 
Turismo 3 and 'Le Mans 24 hours' have way better graphics but I think that 
their Formula One 2002 will have better graphics. This game isn't that original 
but it was the first good race-game on the PlayStation 2, the dream machine.

Like in games as Metal Gear Solid 2: the Sons of Liberty and Final Fantasy X 
(the European version) there is an extra disc. This disc contains real video 
footage from BBC with the original commentary of every race including the Grand 
Prix of Belgium. As extra this can count but I've they had added an arcade 
mode, the game would be even better.

The sounds in the game are really life like: the sound of the engine of every 
brand is different and resembles the real thing. The commenter doesn't tell 
only about you, he tacks about who as car problems, who's at the lead and such 
things. The game as all the tracks and drivers, so if you're a real F1 fan, 
you'll have lots and lots of fun with this game. The game has high difficulty 
with his 'bad' controls but for the rest there is nothing-serious wrong with 
it.

This is a tip for everyone. If you want to change the car engine settings from 
the car, you'd better go to the car engine FAQ with F1 2001 from EA. The 
settings for the motor are exactly the same or look at page 13 of the 
instruction manual. I don't explain it because I don't know anything about it.
