    Great Formula 1 game for it's time especially for PlayStation 1.

    However, there is one thing I have to mention regarding the pictures of the cars.
    These were done in multiplayer mode so that I could get a smart camera perspective from the front and back.

    Unfortunately, this has a negative impact on the vehicle models, as these are now only in low-poly mode and appear much poorer in detail.
    Actually, all the F1 cars in 'F197' have their own specific models and you can also see the tire manufacturers in single player mode on the tires, which fell victim to the PS1 limits in multiplayer mode.

    In the Monaco Grand Prix for example, the Tyrrell with the special side wings can only be seen in single player mode, while in multiplayer all cars share a generic F1 model.

    Hope this is not too bad as otherwise clever pictures are not possible in this game. :)
