Developed by Soft Pauer Ltd for iPhone and iPod touch users, of course, the app allows users to simultaneously track the progress of all cars in real time on a dynamic track map which offers a variety of views of the circuit.
Additionally, fans can choose the unique bird's eye view of the race. As a press release from F1's web site mentions, the data is taken directly from the official timing feeds generated at each circuit, giving the user unprecedented portable access to the information used by race engineers in the pit lane, with the added ability to track the individual driver of your choice
“We're very pleased to offer fans an added dimension to the experience of watching Grands Prix. We hope that they will take advantage of this new opportunity to get a full picture of the racing action wherever they go,” Otmar Szafnauer, CEO of Soft Pauer said.
F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone was also enthused by the whole application.
“I’m very excited by this application as it will allow fans to keep in touch with what is going on whilst on the move,” the 78-year-old Englishman said.
