It's (unfortunately) pretty normal for Android to still play second fiddle when it comes to app development. We see iOS get 'em first, then Android. Not so in the case of Formula 1, which broke the news on its website.
The popular racing league is prepping an Android application with push notifications for the start of the upcoming season. It's being developed in conjunction with Vodafone and will feature "live timing data direct to your phone from every session of the Grand Prix weekend." You'll need to be registered with Formula1.com to take advantage of all the features.
There also will be track and weather info, track status indicator, text commentary, and results for every race of the season, a calendar and standings. Basically, everything an F1 fan could want.
No precise date was given for release, but we'd look for it soon, with the Quantas Australian Grand Prix scheduled for March 25-27 in Melbourne. F1 says iOS and other platforms will follow. [Formula 1 via @racelike]
