Great mod, the logos of the teams and the pilots' photos are of the mod, but the names of the pilots and the teams are still of the original game.
Mod Ist Okay aber problems is turkei trak chrash :(
This mod is undoubtedly great for the many things it delivers.

Firstly, it gives us the chance to play in one of the best seasons ever and it may even challenge the new F1 2013's content, which in my opinion just fails to deliver what this mod does: chance to race the 1990's career (I mean, with all the pilots and cars).

In second, the level of detail is really incredible; all the cars and garages are really well done and some other things as the menus (to choose car, track and the career's menu).

What now may be a 'con', it's the fact that the multiplayer and proving grounds are not working, so it may keep a lot of players (those who mostly enjoy multiplayer races) from using it.
Though if one day the possibility to race online comes, then it shall be even better.
Nonetheless, I'm giving 5 stars for it's a really great mod and as I don't enjoy racing online (I'm just a casual gamer), for me it's everything I need - the chance to remember and race in a season which brings memories of my youth.

Highly recommended.
Well, one could race online with the skins only but that's it :D
thanks for your review
Super!!! XD
Super mod ! WEST Mika !
