The 2017 Formula One season is here, beginning with the Australian Grand Prix from Melbourne on March 26. It will end several months from now, at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 26. A total of 20 races will be held across multiple continents, and seeing what happens with the battle between Ferrari and Mercedes is one of the most intriguing things in the sport in a long while.
In the United States, watching Formula 1 can be an issue given the time differences, but there is television and online streaming coverage of every race if you can keep the hours needed. NBC and its other networks, NBCSN and CNBC, will combine to carry all 20 races in the season.
In addition to that, a simulcast of the television coverage will always be available at NBC Sports Live, though it may require login credentials from a cable or satellite provider. Either way, you’re totally covered trying to watch the races in the United States.
We are now more than a decade removed from the final vestiges of that era, and firmly entrenched in one where relearning the rosters of the sport’s power programs has become an exercise on par with the one demanded of hardcore Major League Baseball fans each spring. Basketball’s top amateur talent no longer remains amateur talent for any longer than it has to, which makes every recruiting season a do-or-die time frame for the bulk of the game’s most well-known coaches. There are few recognizable stars in the sport anymore, because the biggest boon that comes with attaining amateur stardom has become the guarantee of a forthcoming professional contract, so long as you can go five or six weeks without getting hurt.
