    What's the deal with F1's TV broadcast in the US for 2018?
    Thought Fox had the rights, go to foxsports.com and they list ESPN and ESPN2 (with ABC airing only US+Mex)

    2017 had Univision airing every race live and free, has that changed? (not a fan of ESPN)

    No, ABC bought the rights and they own ESPN.

    Fox lost the rights to NBC about, what, 3 years ago? Then NBC has lost the rights and will be Disney/ABC/ESPN this year, with ESPN getting most of the races.

    Univision still have the contract for the U.S. Spanish speaking market. At least that's what their webpage and wikipedia say.

    Yup.

    Luckily, I think ESPN 3 is pretty widely available if you have the cable station on your plan, unlike Fox's streaming platform.

    NBC's streaming options were excellent, but I'm not sure how available it is. I've always had access (DirecTV, Comcast, Atlantic Broadband, and Dish). They only had the one Cable sports channel (plus CNBC which they used sometimes, they had access to USA and MSNBC too, but I don't think they used them for F1.), one network channel and online. ESPN has like 4 cable stations, plus ABC and streaming, so hopefully it won't be worse than NBC at least.

    Fox was (and still is with sports car racing) the worst when it comes to coverage. NBC wasn't bad IMO. Let's hope ESPN can do better than both (doubt it).

    Fox running UFC reruns over live sportscar racing was infuriating.

    Lance Stroll is now a number one driver. At Williams.

    Sergey Sirotkin has been designated to the Williams seat over Robert Kubica.
