I thought the general NBC Sports coverage of the race was good, probably a little better than Speed. I don't miss Varsha (who was covering the 24-hours of Sebring - yawn) and Leigh Diffey is quite good.
It does still amaze me that these guys with so much air time don't seem to notice the obvious. It took mid-race or later before they even started commenting that Kimi's staying out so long on this first set of tires might give him a chance to do a two-stop strategy. They really seem to just be at the mercy of talking about the surface things that appear in the video feed in front of them rather than doing some analysis and insight into the extra data that they should be monitoring.
