Thanks to everyone who sent in feedback on the new JA on F1 Connect news site.
We’ve had a lot of interaction with you the readers and we’ve taken on board your comments. Many of you are viewing the site on mobile devices and we’re looking at how to optimise that.
We’ve also picked a winner at random from the readers who left feedback, who will get two passes for the F1 Paddock Club at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix. The winner’s name is below.
JA on F1 Connect is the fastest way to get up to speed on the F1 news. In one place it brings together the latest news from major news organisations like BBC and the newspapers, as well as the leading F1 sites, and takes in team’s postings on Facebook, Twitter and You Tube. There are also feeds from some of the leading international sites. On Twitter you’ll be able to follow a live stream of Tweets during race weekends, to give you a full picture of what’s going on behind the scenes through the eyes of drivers, teams, journalists and insiders. It should all bring the fans closer to the sport.
1 – an option to click the timestamp to open an article in a new tab
2 – options to save to instapaper and readitlater and readability
3 – detect ipad/iphone browsers and open article in new tab instead of the popup viewer
4 – preloading the next article when the viewer is open after the current article has finished loading
5 – removing the lowercase effect on driver and team names
No one so far has reported browser issues or major bugs which is good news. We can hopefully get it to behave slightly differently on iphone/ipads to make that work better.
As a thank you for your feedback, we offered a pair of passes to the F1 Paddock Club for this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix to one reader, who was picked at random, from all of those who provided us with feedback.
That winner is Tommy Marco. Congratulations to him.
We will be in touch directly via email with pass collection details. Have a great weekend at the Grand Prix and send us some photos!
We will have two further Paddock Club Pass giveaways at the midpoint and at the end of the season, so stay tuned..
