Hmmm...
To do:
  • Check for unused graphics and audio files.
  • Check Japanese SIPS-60011 release.
  • Check for any further changes in European Platinum Edition release.

The first in a long series of Formula One releases for the PlayStation. This release contains some unique features such as including alcohol sponsors in the European release, all drivers that raced in the 1995 season and for the first time Murray Walker providing commentary (possibly a first in sports video games).

European Platinum Edition release

A Platinum Edition of Formula 1 was released in Europe. This release most notably removes the Marlboro chevrons seen around the tracks but retains the blocks that were censoring the Marlboro text; also in what was likely forgotten during development, a fully uncensored Marlboro logo could be seen looking backwards when exiting the tunnel at Monaco was also removed. Interestingly, tobacco sponsors remain uncensored in the driver select screen.

Title screen

The Platinum Edition title screen is changed slightly, removing the text relating to licensing and a drop shadow added to Formula 1.

In what must have been an oversight for developers, a fully uncensored Marlboro logo could be seen when looking backwards while exiting the tunnel at Monaco. This was removed in the Platinum Edition release.
