Seriously, ESPN is the worst when it comes to motorsport. Just listen to the worst calling of one of the best Indy 500 finishes in recent memory. That is what I have to look forward to now.
Though there might be a silver lining for everyone:
I think that NBC might have tipped FOM's hand--that is, FOM might be debuting a pay streaming service next year. Which, if that is the case, obviates the need for me to suffer through ESPN's teabagging of my very soul next season."Although we take great pride in having grown Formula One's visibility and viewership since we became its exclusive US media rights holder in 2013, this will be our last season with the series. In this case, we chose not to enter into a new agreement in which the rights holder itself competes with us and our distribution partners," the network said in a statement.
