F1 Challenge, known as F-1 Live Information (F‐1ライブインフォメーション) in Japan and often printed as F-1 Challenge, is a formula one racing game for the Sega Saturn. Unlike later games this is only licensed by the Formula One Constructors Association (FOCA), not the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA).

The game is based on the 1995 formula one racing season, and lets you play as either Michael Schumacher (Benetton), Damon Hill (Williams), Jean Alesi (Ferrari), Ukyo Katayama (Tyrrell), or Mika Häkkinen (McLaren), driving around one of four tracks; Hockenheim, the Suzuka Circuit, Monte Carlo and the fictional "Neo City" (complete with three track configurations).
