    Question and Answer
    Q: What is Monaco Grand Prix 2?
    A: MGP2 is a Formula One racing game by UBI Soft company.  It contains 22 
    drivers, 11 teams and 17 different official tracks.  The game also contains 
    Arcade mode, Simulation mode and Retro mode (where you can race old school 
    formula one cars from decades ago.)
    Q: Does MGP2 have official teams and official drivers?
    A: No. See section 3.
    Q: What Dreamcast peripherals does MGP2 support?
    A: The Dreamcast steering wheel, Puru Puru pack and the VMS.

    names of teams and drivers.

    A: No
    Q: Can you play MGP2 online with the dreamcast modem?
    A: No, the japanese version was not programmed to play online.
    Q: How many car viewpoints are there?
    A: 5 standard viewpoints: cockpit view, front fender view, low behind car view, 
    medium behind car view and high behind car view.  There's also 15 other obscure 
    viewpoints that arent very beneficial if you want to see what's ahead of you :)  
    One or two of the angles are good to see where your opponent is behind you.  The 
    rest of the views are basically TV camera angles of your race car that look 
    really cool but are impossible to use without crashing.

    Right Trigger= GAS

    SECTION 3.
    Real Team and Player Names
    Unfortunately, UBI Soft (developer of MGP2) was unable to get the official FIA 
    license for the game.  Thus, they resorted to assigning teams by numbers and 
    fake driver names that resembled the real-life counterpart name.  However, the 
    programmers have given you the option to edit both the team names and the driver 
    The default fake names are on the left and the real-life counterpart name is on 
    the right hand side. 
    The programmers based the game off of the 1997 Grand Prix Season.
