Racing Elements is a new weather app that combines two of my favourites: photography and F1. Living in the UK, it's not unusual to be slightly obsessed by the weather and as an owner of a Cahier print, I was keen to see how these could be combined.

The photo backdrop for your chosen location is matched to the current weather conditions and come from the extensive Cahier Archive from father and son Bernard and Paul-Henri, stretching back more than 60 years. This alone would make it an essential download.

There's a useful F1 calendar with racing weekend weather and a Twitter feed

Aside from the standard options of units, location and hourly or 10 day forecasts, there's a useful F1 calendar with racing weekend weather and a Twitter feed of news and chatter from drivers and motorsport media.

It's free to download and allows up to three locations to track the skies. There's also an unobtrusive option of in-app purchases of further photography which also unlocks the use of additional cities in your list.

I've tried it on the iPhone and on the iPad where it also works in landscape and have to say, I'm impressed.

Download the app for iPhone/iPad

Racing Elements is available for iOS and Android, with more info on their website.
