This is the best app an F1 fan can have to stay on top of the news of F1. The developer updates frequently to keep the standings and schedule up to date. My favorite feature is the "countdown" to the next practice, qualy, or race. I purchased the app after using it for a while to remove the ads. Not because they were obnoxious, but because I wanted to pay for a very useful product.

I really like this app and just moved to the paid version, not to remove ads, instead just to support the developer. It just works well. Sure it gives you the same story from multiple sources - but that's good in my book. It's interesting to get more than 1 view of the world. Maybe the UI could be fancier but I personally value function over form and this app does exactly what others fail to achieve.

Excellent! First app I open in the morning! The only improvement I would make would be to remove GPFans as a source; It's never 'news', its trash tabloid journalism, and clickbait at best, and seem to flood the app with their dodgy stories. All other content is generally high quality, and the app works well all the time.
