Rejoice F1 fan as today the official F1 timing app makes its way to the PlayBook. The app is already available for the BlackBerry smartphones and you can find it in App World. I personally had a conversation with their support department when the original app released and they told me that eventually it will make it to the PlayBook and today that became true. I am very excited since I am a huge fan of F1! Let’s go Alonso! Read the press release below.

Demoed at last week’s BlackBerry World event, the app includes an array of great features and over 130 hours of live racing action, making it a must-have for any fan. It is more than just a timing screen; it provides access to the all the minutiae of a race weekend, from free practice on a Friday to the live race on a Sunday afternoon, all for less than £1 a race weekend.
