F1 2013 TV Schedule

Formula 1, the top international open-wheel racing series, gets a new U.S. TV partner this year with the NBC Sports Group airing F1 Grand Prix races, qualifying and practice sessions. NBC Sports Network will also offer race replays, often in the early afternoon, for viewers who don’t wish to watch the late night/early morning live races. Action begins with the Australian Grand Prix early Sunday (late night Saturday), March 17.

Four F1 races air live on NBC (including the last two races of the season), 13 on NBC Sports Network and two on CNBC, with the broadcast booth consisting of lead race announcer Leigh Diffey, and analysts David Hobbs and Steve Matchett. Will Buxton is the on-site reporter.

    Liked the SPEED channel better. Now, an important point: Just wish Vettel would quit doing the damned NASCAR crap with his donuts after a victory—-like him, but find the donuts very “bush-league”, so to speak, and not sophisticated as a F1 victory celebration should be. Too bad many Americans expect that type of behavor at the end of a great event. You what that? watch mindless NASCAR and drink your beers. I’m not a snob, but lets separate the classy (F1) from the ’round-and-’round-and-’round she goes.

    stop dissing nbcsn I did not have f1 for 6 years because I did not have speedvision.it is good to hear david hobbs voice again, f1 sucks but it is auto racing and therefore I will watch it.

  3. RICK says:

    How could anyone screw this up so bad! They say all good things come to an end! I guess watching F1 has just got there.

  4. rederikus says:

    I guess you’d better read this ‘cuz NBC will be the only place to watch F1 for the next 4 years according to the official F1 website. This sucks.

    HOW CONFUSING .. TODAYS GERMAN RACE IS ON CNBC TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIND OUT ..SPEED CHANNEL WAS MUCH EASIER AND CONSISTANT..

  6. R.H.Leuteritz says:

    Previous years TV coverage on the SPEED Channel was much better because we always knew where the Qualifying and Race was going to be shown and at what time. With NBCSports you never sure where or when. Good old U.S. commercialism!

    • flirman says:

      your spot on. Speed was soooo much better. NBC is horrible. you never know if its going to be televised or not.

    NBC should decide where they intend to broadcast the race, I looked all over the schedule and still missed the chance to watch Vettel pass the Old Man… So do I need to Call the NbC Boys for the time and place of the next Race. we need sppeedd Channel

    Along with the F1 RACE SCHEDULE I would like the practice and time trails. I tape them due to the time difference. Thank you.
