    Just watching the BBC F1 Monaco qualifying coverage and Jake Humphrey is holding an iPad. He isn't doing anything with it (yet) just holding it...

    Product placement by Apple?

    As a replacement for his usual clipboard, that's some upgrade

    He said on twitter it was his show notes, though the Timing App is definitely worth the £1 per race price

    Not on the BBC. I assume he's either always covering the Apple logo, or there is something taped over it?

    There was nothing taped over it and most of the time you could clearly see an apple logo.

    I suppose it is no more product placement than the expensive watches they are all wearing.

    'Sometimes in the sun it is like looking in a mirror though!'

    Yeah because it really was designed for outdoor use in the blazing sun....
