A global sport followed by millions across the globe and currently in its 70th year, Formula One is truly an international sport. Owned and operated by Liberty Media, the sport has fans all across the world and many tune in from their homes to catch live races every weekend – be it practice, qualifying or the actual race day.


While Europe is the sport's traditional base, the championship operates globally, with 11 of the 21 races in the 2019 season taking place outside Europe. With the annual cost of running a mid-tier team—designing, building, and maintaining cars, pay, transport—being US$120 million its financial and political battles are widely reported. Its high profile and popularity have created a major merchandising environment, which has resulted in large investments from sponsors and budgets. With so much happening around the sport, it is natural that there are a lot of sources that report all news about the sport but here are some of the best and most widely followed news portals when it comes to F1:


5. Grand Prix 247:


Grand Prix 247 is one of the few motorsport publications to have their own app as well, and it's a very reliable website. There's the usual light/dark mode option, the ability to save articles for offline reading, and plenty of F1 (and F2) news. The app could do with a few improvements though, such as a more intuitive UI and bulk downloading/synchronization of articles. The latter would be pretty handy, as the offline functionality currently requires you to enter an article anyway.


4. Freader 1:


FReader1 is a news aggregator, grabbing stories from Crash.net, ESPN F1, Planet F1, and a few more outlets. It pulls in YouTube videos from various sources too, although the app takes you to YouTube to actually watch them. FReader1 also has a few other features, such as a dark mode, disabling images to save data, and an in-app purchase to remove ads. It's not the prettiest app, resembling a simple RSS reader, but it does its work pretty well.



3. Formulr:


Formulr isn't your conventional F1 news app, focusing on social media-style updates rather than proper news articles (you can even follow team or driver profiles). However, it covers a wide gamut of disciplines, ranging from F1 and WEC, to Indycar and Formula E. The biggest issue with Formulr is that it doesn't have as many news stories as the competition, but you do get plenty of on-the-ground photos and quick video clips which is great content if you are into BTS.


2. Formula 1 App:


The F1 app is an excellent app, serving up news stories, interviews, video clips, and galleries. It doesn't stop there, as the official app also has session start times (both at the race venue and for your time-zone), and the ability to hide spoilers. The official app also lets you pay for the new F1 TV service, but it's only streaming via PC for now. However, signing up for F1 TV does give you access to live timing data via the app.


1. Autosport:


Autosport's website and official app have news stories, in-depth features and big exclusive stories. They cover pretty much every major motorsport discipline around, but have a big focus on F1. Their exclusive stories are much-appreciated as well. The app and website also have article viewing limits, but an Autosport Plus subscription removes these limits and serves exclusive content.
