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?

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.


i would have missed it. my tivo isn't that smart.

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.

Nicely done Nico.

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.

I cheered a little myself. I'm weary of Vettel.
