F1 Pole Position 2 - known in Japan as Human Grand Prix II (ヒューマングランプリ2, lit. "Human Grand Prix 2") - is the sequel to Human Grand Prix and the predecessor to Human Grand Prix III: F1 Triple Battle.


Satoru Nakajima is introduced to the series as a hidden character that can be saved to either of the two provided files. This relationship would continue until Human Grand Prix IV: F1 Dream Battle was released.

It is possible to edit the contracts for the engine manufacturers in addition to the individual players and their respective contracts. The engines in this game look similar to those of Human Grand Prix III and Human Grand Prix IV. Licensing was possible by Fuji Television and FOCA. World Grand Prix mode allows the player to re-enact the 1993 season. Battle mode allows for a single race to take place against up to 13 CPU-controlled players. Finally, time attack mode allows players to practice on the tracks. There is a guiding arrow for turns that allow players to correctly judge how much pressure that they can put on the turns. This feature is used in other Human Grand Prix games.
