There's so much to love about Formula 1 - the pulsating starts, the perilous overtaking maneuvers, the tactical pit stops, and of course the bikini-clad beauties at the start.

If you're a fan of the motorsport and want to follow the season's thrills and spills on your Palm device then you really shouldn't be without this little app. The program contains a wealth of information about the calendar, courses, tracks, drivers and teams.

The menu structure is clear and simple, and from the home screen you're given the option of choosing from the five aforementioned categories. The 'Championship' section provides a ranking of the top drivers for the season, which is updated as the season goes on.

The 'Calendar' menu gives you a run-down of the order and dates of the races, providing you with details of each course, such as the circuit length, web address, lap record etc., plus the facility for entering the final positions in the season's championship. You also get a basic illustrated map of the course.

Clicking the 'Drivers' menu option gives you a list of all this year's drivers and even test drivers, containing info on them about date of birth, nationality, height, weight, number of races/podium finishes etc. For some reason it doesn't show you how many Grand Prix wins they have, and it would've also been nice to see photographs of the drivers.

Likewise, the 'Cars' and 'Teams' section also doesn't have an option for viewing photos of the vehicles, which I found was a key ommission.

Despite the lack of photography, F1 Season 2008 is chock-full of stats and makes for an ideal companion to the motorsport season.
