The easiest way is to get the audio from BBC or Sky Sports. I guess they'll save a lot of money. No need to send people to races, just a small studio before & after the races.

Wonder who they'll pick up from the current Speed presenting team. Would love Steve Matchett to end up with one of the UK broadcasters, as unlikely as that may be!

It may be the easiest way, but this isn't gonna happen. I know where you get the idea from, though. Australian channel Ten did that with the ITV commentary in the 90s, didn't they? Had their own pre- and post race commentary, but switched to ITV commentary for the races.
Switching the coverage from a channel dedicated to motorsports to a major network like NBC can't be a good thing. NBC probably have their own sports network, but how much airtime will they give F1?
I don't think this will do the coverage any good, but I'm sitting on the other side of the Atlantic, so what do I know?

Is he talking about Speed dropping the coverage here?

EDIT: Yes, he is. :p

He hinted at it earlier as he said he had no idea of his 2013 plans. He'll be fine. He has his GP2/3 gig plus being a co-editor of the new magazine. I'd like to see him replace Coulthard at the BBC in doing the gridwalks, as DC's are painful to watch.

Didn't DC once just follow Buxton and stick his microphone in? :lol:

He said he knew it might happen, but didn't know for certain.

Now it appears he's s*** himself. :p

If it's NBC then it will be on their NBC Sports network, a premium channel. Speed is FOX sports network, an R Murdoch company. Most of the races were carried on a same-day-delay basis. I doubt that the same personnel will be carried over. FOX did carry several races on their regular broadcast network but again, on the same-day-delay basis. Also, there were so many adverts that it was almost pointless watching the races.
F1 racing is not mainstream sports to most Americans. Watching cars go fast in a circle while the viewer drinks a lot of beer is mainstream racing to most Americans.

Last year I got banned from SpeedTV.com as a moderator. I was banned IMHO for being correct about a number of different technical issues and not yielding to baiters trollers and general morons who don't understand the finer points of F1. None the less when I took my situation to the asshatted leaders of the forums I was told to take my fans elsewhere.

Well... after holding a deep grudge and focusing my efforts in the most productive method possible, e-mails into inboxes and words into the ears of key individuals, getting a bit lucky on the NHL leaving a huge gap in the network's sports coverage for the spring also helped but... NBC Sports will be the home for F1 in the United States starting next year.

YEA!!!!

You can all hate me now but I am a happy man. f*** those guys over at SpeedTV for keeping F1 under the retard shadow of NASCAR.

Lol @ Eddie Jordan on the F1 Forum. Spots Natalie Pinkham, 'the lovely Natasha.' Jake points out it's Natalie. 'I was thinking of someone completely different.' :lol:

Got to laugh at NBC's list of drivers.

http://scores.nbcsports.msnbc.com/nasca ... ries=FORM1

Just includes driver name and their engine. :lol: So you have 'Vergne, Jean-Eric, Ferrari 056'! And the list includes some test drivers, but some race drivers are missing!

Brilliant opportunity if NBC could also set up streaming on demand. Maybe for a few days to a week after each session thus allowing people who don't fancy being up at 4:00 to watch it live.

Apparently in his new book Steve Rider admits that ITV winning a BAFTA for their coverage of the 2007 Canadian Grand Prix was strange. It was the one where they ended the programme as soon as the podium ceremony was over to put Coronation Street on and received many complaints as a result.

Of course, the BAFTA for sports broadcast is not really about the quality of the broadcast. It's about the even being broadcast and more specifically if it contains British success. ITV only won that BAFTA because it was Hamilton's first win.
