Official ESPN Formula One app speeds on to the Windows Phone Store


Should you somehow be unfamiliar with Formula One racing, the sport is extremely popular with some of the fastest circuit cars in the world. Keeping on top of coverage throughout the season can prove to be rather troublesome, should you not be connected to a viable source. This is where the official ESPNF1 (www.espnf1.com) Windows Phone app comes into play. Overtake the break to see what the app is all about.

Delivering content in English, Portuguese and Spanish, the ESPNF1 app offers not only news, standings and driver positioning during live races, but also detailed information about the collection of competing teams, drivers and circuits. There's a lot of content to get through during the season, but using your Windows Phone while on the move could prove to be the most efficient way.

When firing up the app for the first time and using it to get your through the F1 season, there's a prominent count down clock on the home page, which counts down until the start of the next race. As we're talking about a Windows Phone app, there's an intuitive UI making it almost painless to access key content areas within the app itself. 


If you're interested in the circuits themselves, there's the ability to select a race to view further information on that particular location. Details include a profile of each track alongside the usual historical background. Finally, what would a F1 solution be without a means to check out upcoming races and view exclusive news? The ESPNF1 app can do both, ensuring you're in the loop when it comes to racing.

It's a solid app and one worth downloading should you find yourself following the action. Head on over to the Windows Phone Store to download ESPNF1 for free. Are you a Formula 1 fan? Let us know your thoughts on the ESPN app in the comments.

Official ESPN Formula One app speeds on to the Windows Phone Store


Alright! Just need to remember I have this in 2.5 months when the season starts.

Edit: Just installed and first this I see is the countdown. Just 70 more days! I like this app, nice and clean and displays start times in your local time.

There is the official Formula 1 app, not in the store now because the season is over but should be there before this season starts.

Yes, and make the Scorecenter app worth using... or make it the Sportscenter app and bring WP inline with the apps they offer on other mobile platforms.

Dont count on Starbucks to make an app for WP8, they are Apple lovers, even the android version is not as good as the IOS version.

Complete agree and I would add it is not very metro I.e. Menus are unorthodox and there is no live tile support

Same here. Open any article & it brings me back to start screen. Seems to be a 1520 specific only.:|

Yes it look like it is. If you can go to
About ---> Submit Feedback. Hopefully it is a quick fix.

Thank you.I can wait,no problem. But I am from India. Cannot call an international number. Way too expensive

Ok I submitted the report for the 1520 users to the dev's. Hopefully it is a quick fix.

The first sentence should be less PC and say... "Should you happen to live outside the jolly old USofA"!! I'm not a huge F1 fan, but you know it makes sense Rodders :D

I wish they'd bring the sportscenter app to windows phone so we could get scores, news, video and social media feeds in one place. The current ESPN app is due for a revamp. It has a hard limit on the amount of news, video and scores it loads

Maybe they should fix the ESPN apps that are in the market now before releasing another, terrible apps

Everytime i tap on any article it goes back to my start screen. Anyone having this issue? I rebooted my 1520 & reinstalled the app. No joy.

Wow I didn't know anyone watched F1 anymore. This must be outside the US. In the US F1 gets lower TV ratings that women's basketball and that's bad......

That's very true. But welcome to the "New World". I'm also in the US and it took me also a long time to realize that the Globe is alot bigger than the US. My 2 cents.
I think this is good. :-)

Great app! Hope they can have black background as a choice too. Great alternative F1 app beside the official app from formula 1.com that cost me RM20 to download

I used to love watching F1 when I was child but now not even more because doesn't have much time to spend on this racing event. Haha. Still it's always nice to see official app coming to windows phone ecosystem. :D

Tell them how you feel with in the app go to Settings ---> Other ------ Send Feedback. Your opinion counts.

Official F1 app is excellent, but far too expensive. Believe its to cost of the live data feed that pushes the price up?

Dev should add font size and color adjustment options in the Settings.

Oh, and a link to the WP Store on the ESPNF1 site.


If this is an officially sanctioned F1 app then it should cost about $150. Hey, it ain't cheap being Bernie!

Still no WatchESPN, is ridiculous, if ESPN just make WatchESPN available for WP8 the can get rid of all the other useless ESPN apps.   WatchESPN has been available for IOS and ANDROID for years.  Still no respect for WP8.
