In celebration for my very first microbadge design being accepted, I am starting this geek list.

This is a list of all of the great Formula 1 race games.

I'll start the list off with my favorite, Bolide, and ask you to please add your favorite F1 style race game.

I am a huge F1 racing fan and wanted a microbadge to show my enthusiasm. There very few F1 fans in the USA but, the sport is very popular in the rest of the world. It is a pretty lonely thing being an F1 fan in America.

You can also get a microbadge of your very own by clicking here. F1 Microbadge

Feel the physics of F1 racing in this game. One of the toughest race games to pass in, just like Formula 1 racing.

I love race games, and F1 games are some of the best. Grand Prix - F1 is a hard to find but excellent game. The game is demanding and unforgiving. Fuel usage is brutal. I think this gme is best with 4 players operating 2 cars each.

You can't have an F1 list without what's considered the fan favorite (although I too prefer Bolide!).

More track selection, better availability, and more accessibility to the casual fan, Formula De' gives the everyday gearhead-gamer their much needed fix!

The older, yet still enjoyable Speed Circuit by Avalon Hill (and before that, 3M) still packs a punch. It was fun, and still had the feel of running through the streets of Monaco or down the long straights of Monza. Still break it out now and again for nostalgia sake.

Motorchamp - While not having the allure of real physics or gear-changing, Motorchamp is still a personal favorite, because it does allow some degree of strategy, and is the only F1 game in which you can run 16 or more cars over several laps in a reasonable amount of time. (And damn, those cars are lovely to look at.)

This does not really capture the feel of F1 racing, but it is a quick and fun little card game. There is no track, only the position of your cars relative to the others. The amount of passing per race belies any real ties to F1, but the come-from-behind finishes are exciting.

The predecessor to Speed Circuit.

A 1962 game which is still worth the odd play today.

I have HEARD so many good and interesting things about this game, and I want so badly to add it to my racing game collection. It sounds like fun, and an interesting twist on the racing genre. Anyone out there with some first hand knowledge on this one????

Though the cars are actually touring cars (No reason you could not substitute F1 machines)--this is one the best racing games ever:

Moves are timed! You have limited amount of time to roll up to 3 dice Z (one of them a special die) and then arrange them (either tops of bottoms and place in the order which you'll use them, paying attention to physical limits in curves and avoiding hitting other cars.

This little-known gem from Lambourne Games in the UK is probably the best F1 management sim there is. There was an update issued around 2001-02 that included real-life teams and drivers.

To make the game more fun, I took the nice-looking cars from one of the above-referenced titles (Motorchamp) and use them with this game, which I find alot more interesting (and plays quicker) than the others.

This one deserves to be on the list, mainly because the design allows for modular tracks, such that you can take the track sections and construct just about any F1 track, which I consider a very valuable feature for fans of F1 racing as opposed to shelling out up to $10-20 per track (such as is the case with Formula De -- which is not even that interesting of a game).

Stven Carlberg (ssmooth) review : "players get eliminated before the end of the game. It's a short game, though, and speeds up toward the ending, so it should be suitable for all but the most impatient."

My rate : 7

How about this one? Off course it doesn't come near the others in this list on the complexity or strategic scale, but it is a nice bluffing game, where you have to make some (strategic) choices, and above all featuring formula something cars, race tracks, fuel cans, tires, oil leakage and even moles...

I like it! arrrh

Hi guys! My name is Pere Cobo and i'm the designer of this game.Please take a look on it.

Pitlane simulates a f1 racing, you must select tyres and fuel amount before start the race. Each Game turn you must select up to 4 movement cards avoiding going out the track or crashing with other cars. Depending of the movement cards usage you will lose more or less fuel.

Some luck involved when you go out the track and damage the car, But the core of the game is a good planning of the movements
