Attention Formula 1 fans all over the world. If you want to stay updated and informed, HP is sponsoring a freeware intended for Formula 1 Racing fans called Mobile Grand Prix.
Mobile Grand Prix was developed by But the software can only be downloaded from HP's iPAQ Choice program. Unfortunately you have also to install the download manager to do so.

The user interface can be selected from 17 languages. It provides nearly all information a Formula 1 Racing fan wants to know. This includes racing dates and statistics about drivers, teams, and circuits. Also included is a Web update function which can be used to download the latest information.

You can choose your language from the start screen or the option menu:

Here is the schedule with the racing dates and times. If you click on a circuit name you get detailed information.

The circuit screen lets you navigate through all circuits of the present Formula 1 season:

And, of course, you can get detailed information:

The same detailed information is stored in the drivers section. All drivers of the current season are listed (I chose the current world champion even though he is not so successful at the moment):

Not to mention the teams. Just look at the screenshots to see which team is the best at the moment:

(Do not look at the blue numbers. Look at the black numbers ;-))

The last screenshot shows the update function. If you are connected to the internet you can get the latest information regarding the current season. The last update I made was 21.04.2005.

The size of Mobile Grand Prix is, at the moment, 1.11 MB. This will surely increase while the season proceeds and more data will be available.

Mobile Grand Prix is works with all Pocket PCs, not only with iPAQs but requires the separately available Microsoft's .NET compact framework if you are using a Pocket PC 2000/2002.
It's available for free from HP's iPAQ Choice program but iPAQ Choice needs a free registration.
