    NBC F1 coverage confusion is really disappointing. No live Qual coverage on TV (only mobile/PC ?) and by the way CNBC has fed Comcast (one of the largest cable providers) guide information that shows 7:30am Sunday is “British Athletics Grand Prix” listed as a Track & Field event…. I sure hope that when i tune in on Sun am that it’s the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Comcast says that the network feeds this info, so it’s NBC’s screw-up. So not only do they bouce channels, but anybody who searches under Motorsports category, or under keyword Formula 1 to find the race will come up EMPTY !

    Couldn’t agree more. Why did they want to carry the races if their goal is to confuse their audience? Some races on NBC, others on NBC Sports and yet others on CNBC! Not to mention where to see F1 Extra… When I can find a schedule for the season online, it’s inaccurate. I’m a F1 fan, but the way their handling this is making me less and less of an NBC fan. I don’t want to waste my time checking multiple websites and social media to keep up to date. This is ridiculous.
