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?
Then after 2pm Pacific time...Fox was showing old sitcom or watever....WTF???

Can't they either start earlier or extend the show till 3pm for more "pre-race show" and "Post race" interview???

instead....showing sitcoms that was 20 years ago??? WTF?

C'mon can do better than this!

and Bernie...if you want F1 extend its fanbase for North America....sell the boardcasting rights to someone who are willing to show a proper boardcast like BBC and even ITV last year!
(i doubt it since Bernie took away ALL North American races this season....)
