With the 2018 F1 season just 79 days away, the Liberty Media owned sport is already ramping things up to get fans ready. This morning a new update to the official F1 app was released for Android, bringing with it the 2018 race schedule and some overall changes to the look of the app.
The update is version 10.004 for those keeping score at home and if you have the app already installed, you should get the OTA update over the course of the next few days. The first change you will notice is the app’s icon has changed to reflect the new, and somewhat controversial, logo for the sport. The logo had not changed since 1994 but with new owners comes new looks.
You will also notice that the overall look of the app has changed to be more of a light theme instead of the dark them that was there most of the past few years in the app. Functionally though, you won’t find anything new in this update beyond the 2018 calendar update.
That calendar update gives you all of the details for the massive 21 race schedule that sees the return of the French Grand Prix at Paul Ricard and the German Grand Prix at Hockenheimring. For US Grand Prix fans, the race at Circuit of The Americas will be held the weekend of October 19th down in Austin, Texas.
For those who are new to F1 or to the app, it is free and there is a wealth of information available on the races, teams, drivers and news on the sport. For those who want more live timing data during races, you can subscribe to the premium service which is $2.99 per month. That can be done though an in-app purchase.
