As a big Formula 1 fan I always wanted to be up-to-date what current race state is even if I am far away from TV and/or PC. That’s how this project was born. As a data source Russian biggest F1 site was chosen: it had the live timing and comments on their “Live comments” page. So I have sniffed the traffic that web page exchanged with the server via AJAX, written my own parser and visualized the results in the Android app. Now I am going to polish the app and post it to the android market if I solve legal issues with the site owners.
