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

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.

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

F1's new tire strategy certainly made Silverstone exciting.

Lucky no one was hurt.

The tire failure situation is only getting worse as the season progresses.
With each race the case for negligence becomes stronger. It may be convenient to blame external forces, but track debris and curb construction alone don't account for this dramatic increase in failure rate.
A driver boycott of the next race is justified by legitimate safety concerns.
Whatever promises Pirelli makes, further failures should result in race cancellations.

A new bonding process was used for the Silverstone tires, correct?

If so, could't they return to what they used earlier in the year, rather than last year's tires?

No matter how the FIA is gerrymandering the rules to cultivate the 'show', these short performance windows, unpredictable reactions, and latest race catastrophic failures can't have buyers clamoring out Monday to buy what was raced Sunday. This entire season has been one big Pirelli debacle.

Same here - hating coverage on CNBC... Make my wife start the recordings to see what they actually are before I watch... Hate knowing the outcome before I've watched.

If Hamilton didn't have bad luck he wouldn't have any luck at all...

At least he hasn't taken a spring in the face.
