Looking at www.speedtv.com/schedule I see that Inside GP comes on at 1am friday morning EST, but no mention of practice after that. THe next program isn't listed unitl 3am, leaving an hour and a half gap. Which is how long Friday P2 is, correct? I recall looking at their schedule earlier in the week and it did list practice after Inside Gran Prix, so I'm confused why it isn't there now..?

so this blows chunks, but FOX gets the following races (tape delayed because fox = :greddy: when it comes to f1):

Turkey
British
German
Hungary



why the hell can't speed just show the race live and then let fox show it whenever they want later on? :down:

they've never shown FP1 in the last few seasons.. you'd have to go all the way back to when it was officially called "Speed Channel" and it was dedicated to real racing (no reality crap, no 35hr per weekend of NASCRAP programming) to see when they last showed FP1 IIRC.

Yah I remember when Speed used to show Thursday practice as well. Good I loved it. Four days of on track action. Never knew how spoiled I was. :/ Of course it was all Schumi all the time back then. No one could touch him is seemed like. Fox gets to show three great races. FUck. Hungary, I love the Hungaroring, Turkey, Hopefully Massa sucks cock and doesn't win but the track is beautiful. And Brands Hatch. Never seen a race run there, and having to watch fox coverage (And look, he's coming in for a tire change! How unexpected. F1 is technology!) is going to kill it. At least they're not ruining the USGP and Canadian GP. Oh how I will miss Montreal this year. :greddy:

I wish they were showing Free practice 1, but beggars can't be choosers I suppose. You just know somebody is going to dump it into the wall tho. Slick track on slick tyres.

the downside is that Fox tape delays them, but the upside is that they upscale them :greddy:
