Nakajima Satoru Kanshuu F1 Hero MD, released overseas as Ferrari Grand Prix Challenge, is the second of three games in the Nakajima Satoru F1 series to be released on Mega Drive, and the fifth in the series overall. The game, like the series, is named for Japanese F1 champion Satoru Nakajima.
Like previous games in the series, the game's perspective uses a first-person cockpit view. The game screen is split to allow for two-player simultaneous gameplay; in single-player mode, the second player's half of the screen instead displays an overhead view of the track, the player vehicle's condition, and the player's lap times.
The Genesis/Mega Drive version was developed by Aisystem Tokyo and published by Flying Edge in the United States and Europe and Varie in Japan. The NES/Famicom and Game Boy versions were developed by System 3 and published by Acclaim in the United States and Europe and Coconuts Japan in Japan.
