    I can do that. But if the program listing is wrong in the grid (as it is in this case) then it won't work.

    It's not as if the F1 or Tour de France schedules are last minute deals, so I wonder why NBC was so incompetent at getting their programming schedule to their own company, Comcast? :doh

    Spoke too soon.
    Old tires was obviously the wrong choice.

    Man Webber showed real fight. Great race despite the tire issues.

    I bet the teams will all agree to let Pirelli go back to all kevlar belts like they wanted to do.

    Reality finally catches up with Vettel, about time.

    Lotus/Kimi not pitting under the Vettel SC has to be one of the most bone-headed race strategy decisions I've ever witnessed.

    Kimi didn't sound happy about it on the radio before restart.

    NBC Sports did a sports update near the end of the TDF coverage that showed the results of the GP. :huh

    Don't you just hate when that happens! :dizave
    They know damn well that they will be repeating the race thereafter! :boid

    I take it you are speaking of those annoying tickers at the bottom of the screen. I wish the networks would remove those things!

    BTW, I love that helmet cam Bottas wore.

    Missed the live feed on CNBC so had the race on NBC Sports DVR'd. The TDF coverage went long then NBC sports showed the fucking podium with Nico spraying champagne in front of Alonso. So I knew 1 and 3 before I even got to watch the race.

    At least Vettel broke. :lol3

    Ghastly the way the F1 spectating experience can be so drastically affected by one driver way ahead of the others. Bernie knows this but he seems to have temporarily misplaced his remote (control).

    I am not one to care much about spoilers, but I was caught out by the DVR scheduling screw ups. My grid only showed "Formula One" but did not differentiate between practice, qualifying, repeats, or the race and I didn't see anything listed for the usual 7:30 or 8am time slot so I figured they were just tape delayed. I fired it up late last night to watch the race only to have it start the DVR recording with an update as to who won the race. Very poor form from NBC.

    didn't NBC perfect that approach during the summer Olympics?
    I seem to recall them talking to parents about a gold when they hadn't shown (the tape delayed) event yet....

    Oh well.....


    happy for Rosberg, he seems genuinely likeable.... must not really be German
