Well, at least I found one "ok" thing to help make the delayed fox coverage not be so bad. Yesterday I used the F1 live timing app on my iPhone to keep up with live timing, during the delayed broadcast.

One great feature of the F1 live timing app is that you can tell it the exact time to start replaying the live timing data. Worked perfectly with the broadcast of the race. Well, it worked perfectly until the end of the race where Fox decided to not show some of the final laps. They skipped over 4 laps during the final ad-break. When they left for the 2 minute break there were 8 laps left. When they got back from their 2 minute break, there were only 4 laps left. I know Webber was fast, but I didn't know he could cover 4 laps in 2 minutes.

Fox, why can't you just Broadcast the race?

Here are some pics of the app:
