I'm in the USA - Speed TV only/couple races by FOX (which owns Speed TV). There is no other option.

I agree - Speed TV commentary is quite a good quality one. And I know what I'm talking about - I used to live in Germany, GB and France in tha past.



never knew fox owns speed TV..that explains why the races was on fox last year

they put it in a hard to reach place so they can make a lot of money out of them
Speed is only given on digital cable now and only some packages on dish and direct tv carries it.

Hearing James Allen talk about Lewis Hamilton like he's God pissed me off after a while, and I'm sure people from the UK get sick of it too. Just wish maybe for a little more F1 programming on Speed, but I'm pleased with what we have.


SpeedTV still has that boy stalker Peter Windsor that shines Hammy's knob any chance he can, while poking at every other team as if he is a major player in the paddock. He quite honestly makes me nauseous!

i agree, windsor is a bit of a tool, he seems to have gotten worse since last year. he seems to have a way of pissing off a good percentage of the people he interviews on the grid.

F1 must own everything in the world!!! It seems the most exciting F1 is not anywhere to be found after the original airing, and maybe, if I'm lucky, a rebroadcast. I missed Malaysia qualifying last night and I hate that!

In Malaysia, we used to have live ITV coverage on free TV. Then from last year, only ESPN on pay TV had live coverage while ITV were shown as delayed at night. Same as this year..bummer :<>:

The ESPN coverage really sucks. Too many mistakes, too many ads, not much information and they are just repeating whatever it is on the TV anyway. And that Steve Slater, he was so openly favoring Hamilton that his commentary was 100% biased. :evil:

ITV, but BBC next year. Have British F1 fans heard this interview with Bernie (http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsp ... 306123.stm), next year we could have "Premiere style" Bernie TV next year for the with the licence fee and no adverts, how fantastic.

More importantly lose James Allen and get Ben Edwards in fast! F1 on the BBC, who'd have thought it especially after ITV spent £3 million for internet rights to show practice on Fridays only to have the whole sport taken from them 6 days later- amazing!

But the British something minister or so has now protested against that decision from the BBC because they spend 20 million in F1, but refused to spend 3 millions in Scottish football matches.

I have to watch the free practice sessions on DSF because it's the only channel that shows them (since I don't have Premiere), but I watch the qualifyings and races on RTL.
