Remember the F1 live timing application on the iPhone? Well, it has been the number 1 selling sports application in 10 countries. I talked about it here recently and last year. For those of you whose missed out, it is a downloadable app from the iPhone online store that takes live timing data from races and displays it on your iPhone showing a full bird's eye view of the entire track in real time and follows the relative positions of the whole field from lights off to chequered flag. It is now available for the 2010 season.

The F1 Live timing and track positioning App offers fans:
  • Ability to see the live timing screens used by the teams themselves.
  • Ability to replay any session at any time you choose, and jump forwards and backwards to key points of the action.
  • Ability to focus on the driver of your choice.
  • News and information on race circuits, teams, drivers, results, standings and much more.

I seriously need one too but not sure how do you get enough bandwidth to follow and entire race. Maybe if you were attached to a wi-fi network it's ok but if there if no wi-fi around, do you log onto to your 3G network and pay through your nose?

It was because of the stupidly high cost of connecting to the internet that i decided not to get the iPhone.

I bought an iTouch instead and now use that for my F1 app on my local wifi. It also means that I can be on the phone whilst using the app!

By the way, do you get the news feed in English? Mine seems to be Spanish...
