Misfit. A pillar of society.
Is pirating F1 tv coverage.
Contact him.

My xfinity box is only showing those (FP3, Qaul and Race). It is generally good at searching the guide so that must be it for Bahrain.

Along with another delay in the OTT stream. Not a good start for Liberty...

After a bit of digging, I found it:

Gulf Bahrain Grand Prix
Practice 1 - Friday, April 6 7:00 AM - ESPN3
Practice 2 - Friday, April 6 11:00 AM - ESPN3
Practice 3 - Saturday, April 7 8:00 AM - ESPNEWS
Qualifying - Saturday, April 7 11:00 AM - ESPN2
Race - Sunday, April 8 11:00 AM - ESPN2

Unfortunately, ESPN3 is not offered as a "tv" channel on xfinity. We can stream it through the app, but not through the box (and thus, no DVR.)

Oh well. I guess I have to watch on my phone at work...

FWIW

Thanks for the info on bahrain, however I was talking about the race after that- china. Still only see p3 /qualy/race with no listing for p1,p2. Sadly the new carriers seem to be doing a worse job at coverage than nbc. Almost makes me wistful for the "wideworld of sports" cannned version of coverage back in the 80's. Regards, Pat

My error, sorry. Here's China:

Heineken Chinese Grand Prix
Practice 1 - Thursday, April 12 10:00 PM - ESPN3
Practice 2 - Friday, April 13 2:00 AM - ESPN3
Practice 3 - Friday, April 13 11:00 PM - ESPNEWS
Qualifying - Saturday, April 14 2:00 AM - ESPN2
Race - Sunday, April 15 2:00 AM - ESPN2

I just watched the live streams on the ESPN app and the video quality was outstanding (on my Note 8). The audio was not always in sync which didn't matter for Croft and di Resta but looked funny in the person to person interviews.

Its incredibly opaque. I couldn't find it in any guide or the schedule in the app but knowing when it was on, I just set the app to the ESPN3 and it was there.

Kind of like Kimi for pole - you just gotta believe...
