    Maserati owned by Ferrari right? Still maintain separate engine designs like old General Motors?

    Does that mean less barbecues and less D-rail smoked chicken?

    Re: F1 2018

    Oh, I’m still planning on BBQ’ing, just not as often because $$$. We’re finally getting good at working together and timing the food for the race. I’d also like to eliminate the chips and dips because last time, people hardly touched them and that would save me some cost two hours of prep in the morning. Or maybe just chips and salsa from a jar already done. This past year, I’d fill up on so much dip that I wasn’t too hungry for that excellent smoked meat.

    If we can turn it more into a pot luck, I could see doing it more often. D-Rail is pretty much the de facto salt and vinegar guy now, heh heh. Also, it would be nice to grill some traditional burgers and dogs one weekend. Very delicious and fast.

    There are only three races in the Americas (US, Mexico and Brazil) but only the US race will be live so we’ll be recording the races to better fit our eating time like this past season. Everyone just has to make sure to not watch any sports news or Internet scores or you’ll ruin it for yourself.

    The problem with the Mexico and Brazil races is that while they’re live at 1pm or 3pm our time, we won’t be able to watch them until ESPN broadcasts later in the day, maybe 8pm which is too late for a BBQ on a Sunday night.

    Do you know this for a fact? I can't imagine that F1 would have made a deal with ESPN for delayed telecast. Also the Canadian F1 race is a 2:00pm start CDT.

    No Fiat is the controling owner of Alfa Romero, Ferrari and Maserati so they will be Ferrari racing engines with Alfa and Maserati Logos.

    I just know as much as I read. The latest has ABC involved now:

    Source: http://autoweek.com/article/formula-...pn-abc-tv-2018

    Formula 1 is moving from the NBC Sports Group to ESPN/ABC TV in 2018.
    ESPN and Formula 1 have agreed to a multiyear agreement that brings the sport to ESPN and ABC TV. ESPN and ABC will televise all 21 races in the championship. The first Formula 1 race ever aired in the U.S. was on ABC in 1962.

    The new deal, however, calls for just two races to be broadcast live on over-the-air television (U.S. Grand Prix and Mexican Grand Prix). This season, NBC put four races (Monaco, Canada, U.S. and Monaco) on live over-the-air TV. The 2018 Monaco Grand Prix is schedule to be broadcast on ABC TV on a tape-delayed basis on May 27 following the Indianapolis 500 (it will be live on ESPN that day).

    All F1 races will air live in the United States on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC in 2018.

    “ESPN has had a long commitment to motorsports, and Formula 1 is a crown jewel in the sport,” said Burke Magnus, ESPN executive vice president of programming & scheduling. “There are many passionate Formula 1 fans in the U.S. and we look forward to bringing the pageantry, spectacle and excitement of F1 to viewers across the ESPN platform.”

    NBC Sports Group has held the U.S. broadcast rights for F1 since 2013 and has grown its average viewership 135 percent during the five-year run. According to NBC Sports Group, average viewership on cable (NBCSN, CNBC) has increased during that time from 187,00 viewers to 440,000 viewers. Throw in NBC over-the-air coverage, and that average for 2017 is 548,000 -- up 13 percent from 2016.

    The highlight of this year's numbers came from the Monaco Grand Prix over Memorial Day weekend. That race, broadcast live on NBC, drew an average of 1.444 million viewers -- second only during the five-year run to the 2014 Canadian GP on NBC (1.488 million).

    In a press release, the network said, “Although we take great pride in having grown Formula 1’s visibility and viewership since we became its exclusive U.S. 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. We wish the new owners of F1 well.”

    The network declined to cite specific examples of the competition between F1 owner Liberty Media and possible TV partners. However, Liberty Media has increased the series' social media footprint, and F1 continues development of subscription apps that could be considered competition to any rights holder.

    Re: F1 2018

    NBCSports televised all F1 races Live, at the normal starting time 2:00 pm or 4:00pm local track time. in some cases NBC would rerun some of the races again at latter in the afternoon. You are correct ABC started in 1962 on the Wide World of Sports, Later they moved to ESPN and broadcast almost all of the race start to finish, you have to remember that England, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Monaco, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and Hungary all had races, which made it easy to broadcast all of those races. Australia, Brazil, and Japan where expanded along with Mexico, USA, Canada and later Turkey, Singapore, ABu dabi, Shanghai, China.

    I hope that ABC/ESPN will live telecast all the races. In the USAF we could hear live radio broadcast of F1, Le Mon and INDy 500.

    A little blast from the past to pass the time until the season starts.
