I've read that there will be full coverage of the final test week over the pond but does anyone know if there will be any coverage on NBC Sports or any other US Channel? I know it's wishful thinking but the lack of F1 is driving me nuts.
:D

Hope this is true but I have no idea what the hell is up with NBC Sports and their F1 Broadcast outside Diffey anchoring with Hobbo and Matchette alongside with Buxton still handling Pit coverage! Only thing missing for me personally will be Bob.

Tweets by Diffey and Buxton seem to indicate that they and NBCSN camera crews are in Barcelona, but they're there gathering background footage for a season preview show in the works. They've not mentioned anything about covering the sessions live. In fact, iirc Diffey has already said that won't happen.

NBCSN is already showing a much greater commitment to F1 than Speed ever did.

Until the season preview show (which hasn't officially been announced yet) the closest you get to F1 coverage in the States is the Mobil 1 commercial with a couple of seconds of JB, the Merc commercial with a car that sorta looks like an F1 machine driving on an oval, and the World of Red Bull spot with the showcar doing donuts.

Yes, but there's the Internet, and if someone somewhere is watching, why can't we?

Australia's had a guy in F1 for over 10 years and we still get nothing haha. So depressing. Three practice sessions per year, does it get any better?
