The changes to the game are marginal at best... However, die-hard Formula One fans need look no further than F1 2001 for the most up-to-date--visually or otherwise-- F1 racing game on the market.

The best F1 racing game to date. It incorporates incredible graphical elements, intense racing action and awesome sound for high-speed thrills and chills.

It's fast as all hell, has customizability up the yin-yang, and stays for the most part true to the sport. But its inherent exclusivity and scant few additions above the last outing limit its broader appeal.
