Formula1blog.com Podcast #478- Canadian GP Review

7

Join Paul and me as we review the Canadian Grand Prix. We do it LIVE! as Paul was traveling and at airports (yes, two different airports) during the podcast. I told you Paul would have understeer on turn one with me and force me wide. Either than or we had our own Suicidal Seagulls to contend with during the podcast.

We cover the teams and drivers as they finished and share our thoughts on NBC’s coverage of the race and even have a short reading of the terrific Mark Hughes review.

As for our own Tom Firth, he may be laying in a ditch somewhere in Germany for all we know but if he is, we are sure Lord Hallam will ride to his rescue.

We even offer a few awards.

The moment I saw the Orlando shooting, I recorded NBCSN’s program that was supposed to be running and just caught the race from the start, then I’ve also pre-programmed to record again … TWICE: once on that replay that had the golf instead, and another on CSN Bay Area, which I caught the whole race again. So I didn’t really miss much (sans the pre-race & post-race on replays). For the race itself, I thought that I’ve heard that the steering wheel was a bit overheated from the first race on for some strange reason, so that maybe the reason… Read more »

Bravo for you… Dish had a different schedule and I pushed every repeat showing and it was all golf.

I am NOT angry at NBC They pre-empted Indycar on NBCSN? How is one supposed to get that??? They have a runner ticket on screen and could have told us. Weather alerts ran all through the broadcast from Orlando. Todd is right about DVR technology, it should have switched immediately. But to be angry at NBC is justified. It’s like taking a flight and Delta says your lost luggage is not their fault. Response? Who am I paying? I say this: If we want these bastards fo commit these crimes NOT to win, let’s try and keep life on track.… Read more »

Agreed, to Todd’s point no, people shouldn’t blame it on personal qualities of Lee Diffey, but I think some anger at NBC is justified. To say nothing of the fact the news coverage is what actually drives the tragedies, on my broadcast after three hours of ‘police haven’t released any details’ they switched to the race on the last lap! So they spoiled it for anyone who might find it to watch. The golf thing was crazy, after the rain delay they did filler stuff about the future of golf (there is none) and blah blah blah. The SN app… Read more »

As soon as I saw the wall-to-wall coverage of the Orlando scene, I knew NBC would push the F1 broadcast to either NBCSN or CNBC. If I had to make the choice for NBC, I would chosen CNBC, which on the weekends show endless infomercials and long runs of American Greed and Shark Tank. Instead, I went to their live-stream website to watch the race and it was much better experience than watching it on television. While the television broadcast went into 5 minutes of cable and local commercials, I switched to the world feed/pit lane cam picture in picture… Read more »

…don’t recall Hamilton or others going apoplectic about ROS running HAM out of the track at Australia this year. Perhaps there’s a new level of maturity??
