F1 BRITISH GRAND PRIX – SUNDAY AT 7:30 A.M. ET ON CNBC
CNBC presents live coverage of the F1 British Grand Prix this Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET, as Nico Rosberg looks to close the gap on Mercedes teammate and British-born Lewis Hamilton in the driver standings. Hamilton (169 points) leads Rosberg by just 10 points heading into this weekend’s British Grand Prix, following Rosberg’s win at the Austrian Grand Prix on June 21. Rosberg has won three of the last four races, after Hamilton won three of four grand prix to start the 2015 campaign. Both Hamilton (2014 & 2008) and Rosberg (2013) have previously won the British Grand Prix, including the last two.
Coverage begins on Friday morning at 5 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Live Extra with Practice 1, followed by NBCSN’s coverage of Practice 2 on NBCSN at 9 a.m. ET. CNBC airs qualifying at 8 a.m. ET on Saturday morning, as well as live coverage of the British Grand Prix on Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. ET. NBCSN will also air an encore presentation of the race on Sunday at noon ET.
Lead F1 announcer Leigh Diffey will call this weekend’s action, and will be joined by veteran analyst and former racecar driver David Hobbs, and analyst and former race mechanic for the Benetton F1 team Steve Matchett. F1 insider Will Buxton will serve as the team’s on-site reporter from Silverstone Circuit in Silverstone, England. In addition, Alex Jacques calls the GP2 race from Silverstone which airs Sunday at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
