A part of Formula 1’s extensive range of new programs and products already been rolled out to fans since Liberty Media’s takeover last year, F1 Vision becomes their latest initiative becoming available at upcoming Grands Prix, starting this weekend in Spain.

Fans attending selected Grands Prix will be able to reserve their very own F1 Vision device to use from their seat during weekends. The interactive tablet enables fans to view live coverage of the Formula 1’s ‘world feed’, onboard cameras, live timing, team radio and much more.

A glance at F1 Vision’s key features

The portable device is compact with a five-inch touchscreen display, and it protected by a tough exterior to reduce the risk of damage. There’s also a stand on the back for hands-free viewing. Earphones are also conveniently included.

Device supplier FanVision, who have successfully supplied fans in NASCAR since 2012 along with the US Open and PGA Tour, deliver its content through FanVision Entertainment’s dedicated digital transmitters. Devices, therefore, aren’t dependent upon venue WiFi and guarantee a consistent high-quality streaming from any grandstand location at a Grand Prix.

The brand-new product follows Formula 1’s announcement earlier in the week that they are teaming up with powerhouse sports merchandise leader Fanatics.

The American brand looks after fan merchandise for all major American professional sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR) and more than 200 professional teams including several of the biggest global football clubs (Manchester United, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City).

The Fanatics brand will become F1’s exclusive merchandise retail partner online and at upcoming Grands Prix, launching at this weekend’s round in Spain.
