Official description

FORMULA ONE '99 continues the popular FORMULA 1 series. As usual the focus of the game is realism. All of the tracks, teams, and drivers from 1999 Formula One World Championship Series are included. Every rule for the series is included as well including a full flag system, jump starts, and stop and go penalties. Thanks to a reworked graphics engine, all of the tracks have been faithfully recreated and every car has working mirrors. Should you want a more arcade like experience, the Arcade mode with loose physics and fast action is available. In all modes of play, racing broadcasters Murray Walker and Martin Brundle provide color commentary. If you're in search of multiplayer action, you can challenge your friends to a race thanks to the split-screen two-player mode. FORMULA ONE '99 continues a popular series and gives FORMULA 1 fans more of what they want.

Formula 1 '99 was a game released for the PlayStation around about the end of the 1999 Formula One season. It contained all the teams, drivers (and replacement drivers) in 1999, and contained all 16 formula one circuits.
Commentary was from the now retired Murray Walker and former F1 driver Martin Brundle.
The circuits, as well as the cars were well modelled for a 1999 game, and the physics of the cars were very realistic. On Expert mode, the game is extremely challenging--circuits have to be learnt by heart, and like in real Formula one, one mistake can be crucial.
Overall, quite a good game for its time.
