Can't wait to see pit reporter Sergio Dipp marvel at the diversity.

I'll miss the NBC crew, but as far as ESPN content, I'm not getting hopes up/down...too early to believe anything IMHO but here are a couple of new articles:

Nov 22
http://autoweek.com/article/formula-...mula-1s-future

"Sean Bratches, the commercial head of Formula 1, says the ESPN/ABC deal could be a boon for F1.

Bratches says that each Formula 1 race will be broadcast live in the U.S. on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC in 2018 and that all practice and qualifying sessions will be live as well. ESPN won’t, however, have its own crew at races, relying instead on the feed produced by Britain’s Sky Sport."

And another - which quite honestly, I'd be happy to see Netflix do something.

I'm guessing that means that Nico Rosberg will be a regular commentator for the F1 sessions and races then. I wasn't able to catch him when he did the Japan GP for Sky Sports last season ... but I can't imagine he's that engaging.

I'd still much rather see the NBCSN crew. It just won't be the same without Buxton ... especially his walk down the grid.
