March 13th 2014. Ahead of this weekend’s [March's] 2014 Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix, the all new Official Formula 1 App is now available. The Lite edition – a free download – offers live lap times for each driver, lap numbers and sector classification. It also offers a full range of news stories and session commentary from Formula1.com.
Meanwhile, the F1 2014 Premium Season Pass – an in-app purchase – gives users full access to exclusive content from personalised timing and driver trackers to tyre, speed and DRS data, allowing users to follow each round of the 2014 FIA Formula One World Championship like never before.
All data comes direct from Formula One races around the world and is shared only with teams, broadcasters and fans with the Premium Season Pass of the Official Formula 1 App.
