The race will be on CNBC at 7:30am ET. Not the NBC Sports Network. The move is to make room for the Tour de France.

NBC have been so poor at getting the word out that my Comcast program guide is wrong. It shows an athletics event on CNBC at 7:40am. I guess the Tour de France caught them by surprise.

Also, qualifying is tape delayed. Doesn't feel like F1 has their full attention over there in Fort Lee.
No idea how your DVR works, but I can set mine to record any program listed as "Formula 1" no matter what channel it's on. The option is several menus deep, and it took me a while to find it. I started using it last year when Fox showed four races mid-season instead of Speed. I recorded the live race on Fox and got the replays on Speed.
