Where is the save?????,
This review is from: Formula 1 2009 (Wii) (Video Game)
I got this game for Xmas, and being a big fan of F1 was really looking forward to playing my first proper F1 driving game for over 10 years. The game itself is fantastic, the graphics are good, the game is tricky at first without being impossible and I love both the career mode and the championship mode. Just one fairly major complaint.....being a true fan I like to play the full length grand prix, incorporating pit stops etc. However, I don't always have the time to go through all the qualifying and the whole race at one sitting (like many people I am sure, it is over 2 hours plus per race!), so I was very surprised and disappointed that there does not seem to be a facility to save your game during a race (so you can return to the same spot at a later date). To my mind, this is a major oversight and incredibly diminishes the fun and whole point of the game (winning races through good race strategy as well as good driving). I don't want to spend all my time qualifying for a race that just lasts 3 laps or at the most enough for one pit stop!! A real pity that I hope is rectified next year....

I can't think of a racing game that allows you to save during a race or any sports game for instance that allows this. Surely it would allow those of us with less scruples to cheat just a little.

Grand Prix 4 on the PC allows this, and it did come in very handy for splitting a 2 hour race into more manageable chunks. But you're right, I cheated like a tyrant using this feature.
I think a pause and resume feature would be more suitable, allowing you to leave the game and carry on at the point that you left but not allowing you to go back in time after mistakes.
