Buxton tweeted that they again changed the schedule. It is only being streamed right now.

I'm so confused. What happened here?

I settle down on my couch to watch F1 after avoiding social media all day.

Sadly, it's POTUS LIVE talking about the tragic events that unfolded. After him, came news coverage. I kept fast forwarding, but 50 minutes into the recording realized something wasn't right. Checking the schedule, I see that there is another time that the race is being broadcast - later in the afternoon. I set it to record, turn off the tv, and hang with the family.

Fast forward to hours later, and I sit back down to watch the new recording. It's...golf. Wait, what?

Then I see at the bottom of the screen a programming alert, that it's being aired Tuesday, at 4pm ET? Seriously?

Ugh. Why did NBC pay for the rights to these random F1 races when they can't even figure out how to prioritize them vs. other sports?

So, is this really going to replayed? I can't find a listing for this new air date and time on my DVR....

More to the point, NBC has plenty of other channels to preempt. News is for NBC and MSNBC. There was no need to preempt a sports channel too.

Out of habit, i luckily mistakenly turned to NBCSN and the race was about to start on it. I then checked NBC and saw the news coverage. So i was able to stop the dvr from recording NBC and watched it live on NBCSN.

Anyway, did Ferrari destroy any chances Seb had of winning by their tire strategy? I think so. Even with that extra stop, he wasnt that far behind Lewis, and at the end of the race Seb seemed really happy, i think he is getting happier with the car and the strides Ferrari IS (yes, IS, not ARE!!!!! ) making. Kimi though seems to be struggling still.

Seems like a lot of teams are really being affected this year by pit strategy, most of the time to the detriment of the driver.

How about that start!!!!! I went nuts when Seb just flew by both Merc cars, that was really something!! Sure got me pumped up!!!

never take life seriously

Scotch taping of windows suggested to Bakuvians to prevent glass bursting from engines of F1 cars

Baku, Fineko/abc.az. The Azerbaijani government encourages the citizens to take safety measures in connection with Grand Prix of Europe in F1 class in Baku.

Youth & Sports Azad Ragimov of Azerbaijan says that the owners of shops on the ground floors of buildings in front of which a race track is running must take security measures as shop glass can break because of too loud sound of the engines of the F1 cars.

"This practice exists. Although the window glass are thick, I can advise just in case to install the supports for the glass to prevent their breaking due to resonance or stick glass with tape criss-cross on the old tradition," Ragimov said.

At that, he urged the residents of the capital to learn how to earn on F1.

"If the law does not forbid, then let people to earn, why not?! In Monaco races have been organized for 50 years, and residents of the city regard this event not only as a race but as a source of income," the minister said.

The races of the Grand Prix of Europe will take place in Baku on 17-19 June: 17 June - training sessions, 18 June – qualification, and on 19 June – the Grand Prix.

I tried to watch the race on NBCSN but the constant commercials drive me nuts. I switched to my local Spanish station that shows the race commercial free. How come the Spanish station can put the race on commercial free? I just wish they had a sap channel for audio.But with racing you really do not need the audio.

The commercials were definitely on overload. I switched back and forth to Unimas too. Only problem is that it was windowed non HD.

Someone needs to change the way races are viewed, use the MotoGP format.

I have subscribed to that channel for years to watch the grand prix events either live, or later at my convenience. There is no reason Formula 1 could not use the same exact format. It has interviews before the race. They broadcast the race live, plus race replays later also commercial free. You can even log on and watch the race using the "no spoilers" webpage that shows no results at all! They include in the package access to past race seasons. Bernie needs to let go and allow it finally.

There was a commercial. Right after the trophy presentation.

That sucks. I just checked the wiki page and it looks like some affiliates are showing 480. Supposedly DTV and dish have the HD channel.

Obviously that wouldn't fly in SFL, which is their home base. I wonder if they crank up the bit rate for some of these high profile events like F1 and Copa.

No worries. He will be dead soon, buried in a Heineken bottle shaped coffin with a Rolex watch where the cap goes.

And at that point, F1 broadcasting and content distribution in the USA can finally reflect the fact that it is no longer 1985.

I did not see the race with all the channel swapping on Sunday, but it is amazing to me that Newgarden was not killed.

I was just glad that I was at the Canadian Grand Prix so that I didn't depend on the viewing reschedule. Vettel really drove well, but as mentioned previously, was "screwed" by the pit stop strategy. Lap for lap his times were competitive with Hamilton.

Vettel tires were 15 or so laps newer than Hamilton's, where they not?

I was kind of surprised he was not able to run him down.

Perhaps Vettel just used them up trying to do so, or maybe the Ferrari is harder on tires than the Merc.

Perhaps both scenarios? I was hoping for a battle and pass, as I would like to see Ferrari win and be competitive against Mercedes.

And he was only 5 seconds behind Lewis at the end, so he would have been in front by 6 seconds. So yes, it cost him the race win.

That assumes Lewis was driving 10/10ths, which is unlikely. Not saying VET couldn't have won, but when you are leading you do the minimum required to bring it home 1st. Especially when he's nursing those ancient tires.

I can't remember which tires Vettel was using. I know he was on ultra at the beginning. Maybe he should have went back to ultras for the final stint.

How do you figure? Ham was nursing two sets of tires to get to the end of the race.

This.

Vettel might have had a chance if he hadn't overrun that corner a couple of times at the end.

Just looked it up and Ham ran his fastest lap on 68. Vettel was fastest on 70.

It's all speculation, but you are correct. Ham wasn't at 10/10ths. However, if Vettel was in front of Lewis, (as he would have been) Vettel wouldn't have run his tires off trying to catch up and Lewis would have had 2 options. 1) nurse his tires to the end and hope for the best (staying in 2nd) or 2) push like crazy, kill his tires and gamble on another stop and being able to catch (and pass) Vettel using his fresh set of tires. Possible, but not guaranteed.

Woulda, shoulda coulda......

I just want Ferrari to stop shooting themselves in the foot with tire strategy....

I think it's a little bit of both. Seb was clearly pushing a little too hard. Good on him though, as he had nothing to lose.

It appears that the Merc is easier on the tires after the stints Lewis did in Monaco and Canada, but as we've mentioned, it's a lot easier to make tires last when you are in the front, in clean air and controlling the pace.

IIRC, he was on softs. I thought he should have went to the Ultras as well, but they were probably worried about the durability for that many laps. Especially since they knew Seb would be pushing.

It didn't help, but ultimately, I don't think it really made a difference. Obviously, he would have closer, but Lewis is not easy to get around.

Dont try to be trendy. It doesnt suit you.

You cant change the parameters of the discussion to suit your needs. If you would like a different discussion then simply admit youre wrong and start a new one with your new parameters.

Thank goodness for the NBC Live Extra app on my Fire TV.
