Atlas F1 - fact sheet

Atlas F1 - the Journal of Formula One Motorsport - was founded in February 1995 and is now the longest running F1 website on the Internet.

Atlas F1 offers in-depth and quality coverage of the sport, and the web site has made a name for itself among fans and professionals alike as the leading online publication, with unmatched and unrivaled reliability.


Atlas F1 was the first web site on the Internet to have signed a license agreement with Formula One Administration, and currently the only F1 web site with accreditation to the FIA Formula One World Championship Grands Prix.


Atlas F1 publishes more content every month on Formula One than ANY publication in the world, online or offline. The amount of content published on Atlas F1 per month equals more than 5 copies of F1 Racing magazine -- that's five month's worth of coverage produced every month!


No other F1 website has received as much kudos in the press as Atlas F1:

  • The 2003 BBC GP Review Magazine selected Atlas F1 as the best Formula One web site, stating that: "AtlasF1 has become the must-have portal for all dedicated F1 junkies. From a world-wide team of hugely respected columnists and journalists the site delivers the best daily news and information for F1 fans anywhere, together with a weekly 'webzine'. Facts are verified, speculation is never passed off as the truth and rumours are posted in their own 'Grapevine' section so as to differentiate them from reality. And although they're usually one of the first with news as well, the site contains a wealth of truly great material. [...] Call yourself a fan? It's only six pence a day! Worth it? Absolutely without question."
  • Johnny Herbert, former Jaguar Racing driver and three-time Grand Prix winner said of Atlas F1: "The equivalent of your weekly F1 newspaper and you don't even have to order it from your local newsagent."

  • "J Magazine" - Jordan Grand Prix's official periodical - writes about Atlas F1: "Probably the best site out there is Atlasf1.com. Founded in 1995, Atlas F1 has become the must-have portal for all dedicated F1 fans. With daily news updates and a weekly 'webzine', the site is subscription only - US$40 for a year. Worth it? Absolutely, without question."

  • The BBC Web Guide labeled Atlas F1 as "some of the best motor sport journalism on the Net."
  • The F1 Links Directory writes about Atlas F1: "Arguably the Number 1 site on the web for the Formula 1 Junkie, it has that ingredient that is missing in a lot of glossy F1 sites - content. What did we ever do without it?"
