F1

2013 F1 season starts this weekend! Broadcast by NBC this year (although March Madness is butting in, from what I've heard). Who's in?

If the forcast rain occurs during the race things could change.

IIRC, Alonso's good in the rain.

He's okay - the rain is a great equalizer, makes the racing super exciting. My favorite races are the ones where rain comes and goes-blends risk taking strategy with driving skill more so than in the dry. Plus more spinouts and slides never hurt

FORM1 Schedule - Auto Racing - NBC Sports

NBC bought the rights over Speed channel (which is now Fox Sports, no more Speed ) but looks like they're doing it right. I'm really looking forward to their coverage.

Edit: the 2 am qualifying is rebroadcast at 1:30pm and race at 1pm Sunday.

Did NBC Sports just buy SPEED's production company turnkey?
