If you're excited about all things Formula 1, why let your monitor idle time away on boring Windows screensavers? 3D Formula 1 Screensaver puts the king of motorsport on your desktop.

To run 3D Formula 1 Screensaver, you have to install Astro Gemini's screensaver manager, which is included in the download. This isn't a bit problem, but it'd be nice to run it from the Windows screensaver interface. You can configure 3D Formula 1 Screensaver, in terms of what actions turn it off and whether it plays effects and music.

The graphics are pretty good - not up to current generation games, but slick enough with nice camera angles and variation. Unless you enjoy the sound of noisy mosquitoes the sound effects will quickly become annoying background noise. The techno-like music is pretty forgettable. Luckily, both can be turned off. The demo version will display a nag screen after a couple of minutes, asking you to upgrade to the full version, but otherwise there are no interruptions.

For Formula 1 fans, this screensaver is great, even if it's missing official 2009 details.
