Thanks for adding the "spoilers" to the title. It's hard to talk about these things on the internet.

1:00 PM on Fox 5. Funny, I think they showed the qualifiers live.

It is worse than I imagined. Looking forward, Speed is not covering the races at all! The rest of the season looks shot!:XX:XX

Speedtv has gone down hill since they stopped being Speed. Have you seen that show where three Asshats guess what some other Asshat's time down the 1/4 mile will be. Talk about marketing to the lowest common denominator. Then there is Pinks. I feel my mullet growing just watching that drivel. How is it possible that so few Americans watch F1 that we can be treated like this? AAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!

The one saving grace here is that when the race coverage goes to Fox, we still get the inimitable Hobbs, Matchett, Varsha, & Windsor commentary team. F1 on CBS with their numbnuts commentary was almost unbearable!

What's this bogus 'Speed is not covering the races at all!' rubbish?
ALL the remaining races through the end of the season are being carried on the Fox mother ship. Practice & Quali on Speed, the race on Fox. Race schedule is:

6/22French Grand PrixCircuit de Nevers Magny-Cours
Magny-Cours, France8:00 a.m.Kimi Raikkonen
7/6British Grand PrixSilverstone Circuit
Silverstone, England8:00 a.m.Kimi Raikkonen
7/20German Grand PrixHockenheimring
Hockenheim, Germany8:00 a.m.
8/3Hungarian Grand PrixHungaroring
Budapest, Hungary8:00 a.m.Lewis Hamilton
8/24European Grand PrixValencia Street Circuit

Fox still sucks. They don't air the full coverage including the full interviews. They also don't air the races live. I like to see the European races live. It is perfect to wake up, watch the races with my sons over breakfast, and then have the whole day. I am never around to sit in front of the TV at 1:00pm and they don't make it easy to figure out when the race will actually be broadcast.

I like the post race too, but get real. At least it's on.
