Tips and tricks

F-1 Dream used a rather unusual control method for a driving game. To reach top speed, first hold down button 1 - then, as the car picks up speed, release it and hold button 2 to change to 2nd gear.

When driving the turbo car, activate the turbo boost by holding both buttons while at top speed.

There are 2 ways to decelerate, either by releasing button 1 while at top speed (or in turbo mode) or by releasing both buttons simultaneously.

When in the pit, tap the buttons to make the repairs go faster.
