BBC revamps Formula 1 site

The BBC has re-launched its Formula 1 website ahead of the 2009 F1 season. ‘Formula One’ now gets its own tab on the Sport homepage (which, confusingly, is separate from the ‘motor sport’ section).

There are some excellent offerings on the site including video clips from past races. There are new columns from pundits including Martin Brundle.

New presenter Jake Humphrey gets his own blog (and he’s dishing out the link-love – thanks Jake!). So does the ‘F1 mole’ – a somewhat different offering to Grandprix.com’s column by the same name.

What do you make of the new BBC F1 site?

Thanks to F1India, F1-fans, Toomuchracing, Matt and Ade for the tip.

    I give the makeover a thumbs up. It’s got video footage now and and the MB blog adds a lot. I reckon it’s better than ITV-F1.

    That said the BBC could attract a ton of viewers if they had Fantasy F1 on there (a good one anyway).

    good site needs to be improved a bit though making everything clearer instead of being scattered everywhere but that trailer is a bit well average wouldve expected more maybe it will be improved :P

    Not as good as Brundle’s site

  5. Just to say, the preview has now been re-edited and looks massively better than it first did!

    The site is Ok but lacks serious comprehensive pre-season test coverage, especially in terms of published laptimes. And while it may not be an issue for the site, where oh where is the BBC F1 archive? Could we not at least have some proper edited highlights of classic races on the I Player rather than Murray’s 5 2 minute summaries?
    Truly awful, crass trailer for the new season, too.

  7. If you want to see a reader’s feedback :) , I rate this article for four from five. Detailed info, but I just have to go to that damn google to find the missed pieces. Thank you, anyway!
    p.s. Year One is already on the Internet and you can watch it for free.
