Below is a chunk of the press release outlining the details for this weekends coverage of the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix from TSN and RDS.
One of the final paragraphs in the press release state that TSN is the “home of auto racing in Canada.” They say this, yet they are too cheap/moronic to produce any sort of pre- or post-race coverage for this race. For anyone who has seen Sportsnet’s coverage since they took over the Indycar rights this year, and the amount of production they put into “Canadian” coverage of all races, we should all hope they can also steal away F1 rights next time they become available.
TSN and RDS deliver all the action from the 2013 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX as the biggest auto race on Canadian soil hits the famous Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal from June 7-9.
