Live Timing - Four Possibilities
Soft Pauers' F1 Timing App on the iPhoneAs talked about some time ago, the F1 Timing App by Soft Pauer can increase your way of experiencing Formula 1. The benefit is that, using it, you do not just follow a Formula 1 practice, qualifying or race, but you actually become much more involved by getting lap times and three sector times for each driver and also track positioning, which shows all drivers with their current position on the race track. Last but not least you can use the F1 Timing App not only in live mode, but it enables you to replay any session at your convenience. This allows you to use the F1 Timing App also when watching a previously recorded session on television.

live timing for many mobile devices
Free live timing on the Formula.com websiteYou can also use your laptop or standalone computer to access the free Live Timing on the Formula 1 Website. The only requirements are that both the Java plugin is installed on your computer and that you sign up on the Formula 1 website. Like the 2011 Formula1.com App, live timing with three sector times is provided, but track positioning and support for time-delayed viewing are missing. What is additionally provided, though, is the drivers' speed and current weather conditions.
Live F1 for Linux users
I have been using the F1 Timing App extensively and, even though not free, in my opinion it is well worth its salt. The track positioning and the possibility to use it while watching a recorded race make it indispensable to me.
But also the 2011 Formula1.com App for mobile devices and the computer-based solutions have their appeal and increase the experience of watching Formula 1 considerably. If track positioning and time-delayed viewing is not on your list, they might just be what you have been looking for
