Hamilton has won six times in Canada, not building my weekend around this race.

Canada - who all remembers precisely where you were during this crash? I do, and thought I had just seen the first fatality in 13 years.

I still can't believe he wasn't injured any worse than he was, in many ways. That was just brutal.

That was pre me getting back into F1, but Eek that's a gnarly looking shunt. Amazing that it was minor injuries & he was only out for 1 race.

I'm not seeing quali listed. ESPN2 has free practice 3 and the race, maybe things will change in the next couple of days.

Thanks, that's right, I forgot that I'd set up the DVR for ABC race coverage. I don't have ESPNews. Crazy quilt coverage is a mess.

Agreed, the coverage jumps around a bit.
That's why I went with YouTubeTV, I get almost full coverage of each race.
We cut the cord on cable last year & tried YT & PSVue. Really wasn't a fan of the PSVue interface, and YTTV has the app on my new TV, so stuck with that one.

The race itself wasn't very exciting except for the first lap, maybe the first few corners. After that the passes were all tactical exercises, when to pit, when to go faster, etc.
The result did bring the points race closer. Max finally had a good weekend and McLaren really have some work to do. If not for his recent mechanical DNF's, Fernando would be at the lead of the pack behind the front 3 teams. Now they are even having reliability problems. Without him they would be back much closer to Williams.

Agreed, aside from the Stroll/Hartley incident, more of a parade than Monaco.
Thought Bottas was going to close the gap at the end, until he fumbled T1/2.

Set the DVR to record F1. What I got was the qualifying, no race recording. And, it turns out, the qualifying was better than any race I've watched in recent history.

It was on ABC this weekend. Probably will be in TX as well.

Yep, with a replay on ESPN2 today.

TX, I'll get to see live from T4 Cool
