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 two 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.
