Overview[ edit ] TV broadcasters all take what is known as the 'World Feed', which starting with select races inhas been produced by FOM Formula One Managementfor almost every round of the World Championship. Previously, a 'host broadcaster' from each nation produced the World Feed for their home race, for example TF1 for the French Grand Prix. This led to a two-tier system which was unpopular with viewers due to local broadcasters focusing heavily on local teams and drivers, whilst missing key moments. Host Broadcasters did trialled widescreen broadcasts for local viewers sporadically prior to the season - FujiTV and Australia are some of the broadcasters who did.
They have updated the app and made massive changes. Taken away the track view showing a beautiful overall look at driver locations and substituted this amateurish screen with dots!! Took away a very detailed screen giving the viewer us all the data for all drivers on same screen.
I could look at this view and know gaps, sector times and more all on one screen along with the track view. I was fully informed with increasing or closing gaps of all driver with a single screen, not to mention 4 other screens showing any other support information you wanted They now have these simple screens.
Nothing is combined My ability to see what I want to see data wise has been taken away. I have to swap back and forth between several screens to get the same combined data you use to have last week!!
The new app shows lap time, gap to lead and interval between drivers on one screen but only six max drivers at a time.
With the previous app, I could see the entire field on my tablet. I have to go to a 2nd screen to see sector times really annoying during qualy and still can only see the top six, missing drivers who have just gone out on track and are setting competitive early sectors.
Graphics and color choices are also poor and inferior tot he previous version. Terrible update.

This should have gone to a Beta release with a representative sample of fans! I will cancel my subscription if this is not fixed- actually worse than just following broadcast.
However, if you turn on notifications, they do more than just remind you that practice, qualifying, or the race is about to begin, they also send notifications when the results are posted.
However, the spoilers remained through Qualifying and the race.
The banner notification should let me know that results are posted, so if I want to spoil the race for myself, I can, but not give me no option about it.
After being very good for the entirety of the race and not opening timing and scoring, so I could go home and enjoy the race later, the F1 app ruined it for me.
