all of this was true… F1 used to be very hard to follow. Until they announced the race track here in Austin about 15 minutes from my house! My favorite sport is now in my favorite town! Fox and Speed are no longer showing hacked up races, NBC is better and has more coverage and with Tivo I watch practice, qualifying and the races when I want to. And with the blogs, reddit.com/r/formula1 and twitter you can get really good news. Now if they would just stop blocking the youtube videos we could even kind of have the kind of pre race shows they have else where in the world.
