SAVING YOUR BEST LAP TIMES
In F1WCE you are able to save your best lap times onto disk.
To do this all you need is a blank formatted disk, this needs to be done
before loading F1WCE. When saving best lap times follow the on screen prompts.
F1WCE has been designed so that you are unable to save your best lap times to
the original F1WCE disk.

There are two settings, auto and manual. With a manual gearbox you have to
change gears yourself by pressing up and down on the joystick.
The settings are low, medium and high. High Wings give more downforce and are
good for really twisty circuits such as Monaco.
The three tyre types are hard, soft and wet.
You can increase your fuel load by pressing up and down. Having a high fuel
load might mean you can have fewer pit-stops during a long races but increases
the weight of your car therefore making it slower.
After the end of the race you are shown all of the finishing positions and, if
you are racing in a Championship, the current season standings. Press the fire
button to continue past these screens.
HINTS AND TIPS
To become the FIA Formula One World Champion will take a lot of practice. This
is especially important when learning the layouts of each of the courses.
With 16 circuits on the FIA calendar trying to memorise every dip, corner,
chicane and straight is going to be hard work. Make good use of the on-screen
circuit map so you dont get caught out!!
Sometimes you may be stuck in traffic trying to overtake slower cars. Here the
tatic is to bide your time. Try and get onto the inside line of the circuit to
out brake other cars going into the corner.
Timing Pit-stops is crucial. Very often the difference between winning and
being second place is a badly timed pit-stop. Keep one eye on your tyre wear
indicator, one eye on your position on the track, and one eye on the weather
conditions (if you have 3 eyes that is!).
If racing in Championship mode remember that it might be more important to get
a few points in the bag than risk staying out on old tyres trying to get first
