Now the question, how much commercial ads ESPN will put during the race session?
SPEED was horrific in the past, then NBCSN was a bit better (given with 30% live screen during ads), we'll see how much races I'll "missed" during their so called live broadcast flooded with commercial ads.

Cannot wait till direct-to-customer feed in the future.

That's such a good point, it was already discussed in this thread.

When F1 was on Fox Sports, nobody brought up politics, because it would've been idiotic to do so.

Awful news. Give me Hobbo/Matchett/Varsha, and V10s and I'd be a happy camper. F1 is total dullsville right now.

Looks like I won't be watching F1.......ESPN is a shit hole loaded with ignoramuses that want to talk about anything (see politics) other than sports.

I never liked NBCSports / Speedvisions coverage. Only Will was/is at trackside...and he, by far, is the best.

The announcers all sit in the studio half the world away...

I've been stationed all over the world and Sky and BBC were (and are) the best coverage. They have announcers, and the budget, to be trackside every race. They also pull the best talent.

Not sure if ESPN/CBS will be better / worse, but I am excited for a change...

If ESPN follows the same format that it’s sister channel ABC did when it tried to cover Monaco during ‘Wide World of Sports’, it will be an unmitigated disaster. Announcers who don’t know a fucking thing about F1, and constantly cutting away from the race for stories about the driver’s lives and families.

I know some of you haven’t been thrilled with the in-studio trio of Diffey; Hobbs and Matchett, but these guys not only have true knowledge about what they speak, but are incredibly passionate about F1 as well.

I have a terrible ‘feeling’ about how this switch to ESPN is going to play out for us diehard F1 fans in the US. I can only hope my son can set me up with the Sky broadcast via streaming somehow.

Word is ESPN isn't using their own announcers...this from www.formula1blog.com: "Update: I did hear from the nice folks at ESPN that the broadcast would be using the F1-produced world feed including announcers who have not been determined yet, which is what NBC and SPEED used if I have my facts correct, and that there would be no ESPN announcers involved in the broadcast. Now this adds a different slant to the situation."

From FOM, an ESPN statement:
ESPN have issued a statement exclusively to this site. “We will not air additional pre and post-race coverage on television. It’s been our experience that the overwhelming majority of motorsports viewers tune in for the race itself.”

“We want to attract new audiences for F1 by drawing ESPN fans from one program directly into race coverage. We will not have any ESPN announcers involved in the telecasts.”

Continuing their statement, ESPN note “The F1-produced world feed that we will use will have announcers (to be named). We feel that the television product produced by F1 is very good and will serve our viewers well.” ESPN’s statement certainly makes it a more realistic possibility that the over-the-top network for Formula 1 will launch next season."
