I don't know about Windows 8, maybe some older versions of directX aren't included in the OS? I think all this games use Dx8.
Or maybe it's the DRM that makes problems?
You may try dgVoodo emulator - it is made for older games that use DirectX versions older than Dx9.
P.S. Unlike other EA F1 games F1 2000 gives me troubles even with dgVoodoo. Looks like it just isn't compatible with modern versions of Windows.

There are patches for F1 2001 just Google F1 2001 patch and try those.
You can also go with nocd cracks, but I'm not supposed to say that so strike that from the record. Oops 🤭😬
Other than that on some of my systems the exe (especially install one) was blocked by my OS system. So I had to right click and unblock.
You could look at your antivirus too. Maybe a block there?
Also in the config graphics exe set up, try altering settings there. Just start the exe and you'll see a drop down box listing different graphic options.
Ideas to maybe help you out 🤔

Also, while a game may run well in Vista or later, many installers will not work. A search for your particular game may find a workaround (with some games you can just copy all files to the hard drive and it works).
