In the season mode, the player makes up the last name of his character. He must audition for a team and must qualify for all of his races on time. If the player fails to qualify for a race, he automatically receives 0 points and sees a picture of himself looking at the night time sky. Each teams has requirements and if they are not meant, then the player is fired from the racing team. Depending on how good a player qualifies in the test teack (known in the game as Auto Police), either many or few teams will be knocking on the player's metaphorical door. Different teams have different requirements in order to stay employed. Unlike its sequel F1 Super License: Nakajima Satoru, going to the pit stop is needed to do repairs on the car. Repairing the car can either be set to automatic or manual on the setup menu.
Transmission can also be shifted from manual transmission to automatic transmission. However, the player still needs to shift from neutral to first gear even while in automatic transmission; like in most Formula One games. The maximum number of laps that can be attempted is five (5). The 5-lap rules applies to practice, qualifying, and the actual race itself.
