The magnetoresistance of the quasi-one-dimensional organic conductor (TMTSF)2PF6 is studied for currents flowing parallel to the best conducting a and second best conducting b directions in magnetic fields perpendicular to the a-b plane under a hydrostatic pressure of 0.8 GPa. As a function of the magnetic field, the magnetoresistance follows a power law ΔR/R = (B/B0)3/2 both in the a and b directions. The a-b plane conductivity anisotropy is field independent. The scaling field B0, characterizing the strength of the magnetoresistance, follows an exponential temperature dependence B0∝exp(T/T0) with a field-independent characteristic temperature T0 = 10 K.
