      F1 WORLD GRAND PRIX for Dreamcast

This FAQ is my 1st one for Formula 1 games.I'm
a big fan of this game and i thing that all the
help that we can have isn't enough.
I've start making FAQs becuse i think that are
some things that i know that can be shared
with other players.I can be also a good 
example to all the Dreamcast users becuse all
my FAQs are made using it.In my FAQs you will
find a very easy to understand type of 
language since English isn't my natural one (i'm
Portuguese).I also want to thanks to Gamefaqs
for keeping my FAQs and all the internet sites
that currently keep some of my FAQs.
