Speed has Lost F1 Coverage for Next Year

According to the AP Speed has lost F1 coverage starting next year. As we speculated earlier in the week Speed is likely to turn into an all sports network and those rumors seem more true every day. Speed has shown F1 coverage for 17 years and part of me is sad to see it go. I remember as a teen staying up later then I should have watching races. No word on what will happen to Speed’s trio of announcers, but I hope Hobbs, Matchett, and Varsha manage to make it to F1’s next TV destination. They really are quite good and very entertaining. The AP also reports NBC is negotiating with F1 for TV rights so thankfully we will still have a place to watch F1. Maybe NBC won’t interrupt a race for NASCAR practice.
