It's a shame that Speed has lost the rights to broadcast F1 in the US. Coverage in the US has improved significantly over the years from back in the day when all we got was tape delay of Monaco on Wide World of Sports. I wouldn't call Speed's coverage perfect but since they've added Qual and FP2 it's much better. And now having streaming access to FP1 and FP3 we were getting all the on track action. I can't see any other network providing as much. I think this change is a significant step backwards.
Bernie has always had a hard on for major US network coverage of his races. Now, it seems, he has his wish and the real fans will probably be worse off for it.
