F1 Pole Position 2, known in Japan as Human Grand Prix II, is a Formula One racing game from Human Entertainment. It was released in Europe by UbiSoft, but did not receive a US version. The game follows its predecessor F1 Pole Position, adopting a Mode 7-enhanced view of the racecourse, while updating the drivers and teams to reflect the 1993 season and adding a few new features to the gameplay.
The player can compete in the 1993 F1 season via World Grand Prix mode, they can race against CPU opponents on a track of their choice in Battle Mode or they can practice individual tracks on their own in Test Run Mode. The game adds a few features to make the driving easier, including an indicator that tells the player how much pressure they need to apply for an upcoming turn.
Like a handful of other Japanese F1 games, F1 Pole Position 2 procured licensing from FOCA and Fuji TV so it could use the real names of teams and drivers. The game was followed by Human Grand Prix III: F1 Triple Battle in 1994, which did not receive an international release.
