Hi Deepak,
By best F1 site I take it you mean web sites which have information/content on F1.
You could surf www.formula1.com its the official site and/or www.espnstar.com which offers news, commentary etc on Formula 1.
Hope the above helps.
Cheers

I was thinking PlanetF1 was more of gossip loaded website, otherwise I found Autosport to be sharing more reliable information.

www.f1sa.com - More first hand & reliable information can be sourced here.

www.planetf1.com - More like a F1 tabloid & editorials often sound like being written by Hamilton fanboys. Otherwise, makes a good read.

www.crash.net - Does have loads of pics and news. Mostly reliable like Autosport.

www.pitpass.com - Another reliable website and decent editorial. Their coverage on most of the F1 controversies have been perfect and made a good read.

F1 | ITV Sport - has reliable news as well as tabloidy stuff. They come up with some good feature articles now and then.

Other sites I check have already been mentioned by previous posters.

Autosport when I'm looking for serious no-nonsense news, PlanetF1 for some good old fun. These days, PF1 is starting to grow on me. They've got the right mix of news, gossip, rumours and editorials. And their forum is pretty good too!

Okay for me it was F1-live.com all this while, but from last week it has been taken over by ESPN and the layout of the website is making it really difficult to read the news. Earlier u could go to the botton and keep hitting previous all the way to the top. Now its bad.

The best now for me is yahoo. F1 News | Formula 1 News | Formula One News.

Gives almost the same news.

i regularly visit these for news
autosport.com (reliable most of the time, no mindless gossips)
formula1.com (official)
planet-f1.com (ok for some news, just get the news from there, don't go by their opinions)

also there is this reporter Jon Noble who tweets some good breaking news.

Yeah, their forum is the good part. Sometimes if i want to get a quick update on the news i just visit that forum, somebody would have already posted there.

I've always found gpupdate.net (earlier f1racing.net) pretty good and informative. Planetf1 is good with their forthright views and early scoops. Autosport, of course, is top notch serious reporting. I've been disappointed with f1-live in their new ESPN F1 guise - gone is the easy browsing, high on information information layout and usability of the original.

OTOH, I think the PF1 forum is made up of immature fanboys, atleast that's what the comments section usually shows.
