F1 Circus MD (F1サーカスMD?, "Formula One Circuit Mega Drive")[3] is a Sega Mega Drive video game.

This game uses the vehicles and the basic regulations of the Formula One circuit. The "Circus" part of the title is actually a mistranslation of the word Circuit. While loosely based on the 1991 Formula One season, the game uses drivers and racing teams with similar names to the officially licensed counterparts of that era. Career mode only permits racers to race up to eight seasons; retirement is mandatory after the eighth season. Preparing for each and every individual race requires setting up the right racing parts for the individual demands of that particular course. Team Lotus is considered to be the official co-sponsor of this video game along with its publisher Nichibutsu.


The view is top-down which is considered a tricky view for most gamers.[4] All the important text is in Japanese[5] with only the menus and a few minor features in English.

Players must try to either win as many races as possible or achieve a podium finish. Every new Grand Prix at worldly destinations like the Canadian Grand Prix and the Japanese Grand Prix requires the player to learn new skills and new turns. The racing action consists of open wheel vehicles capable of going more than 200 miles per hour (321.8 kilometres per hour) on the long straight portions of the track. However, players must qualify (through the practice mode) for every race. Failing to qualify will force the player to repeat the qualification process until he manages to make the starting lineup (unlike real life).
