Caroline Hughes, commercial controller, at Granada Media, said: "Development of ITV-F1.com is key to maintaining loyalty with its 350,000 users.

Advertisers supporting the new site include Agfa Cameras, Alfa Romeo, Apple, Audi, Autobytel, Books On Line, BMW, BT, Excite, Ford, Foster's, Gillette, Guinness, IBM, Intel, Psygnosis, Mazda, Microsoft, Tesco
The ITV-F1 website is designed and maintained by Eidos Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Eidos.
