2012 Formula One on TSN Schedule

TSN has released their 2012 Formula One schedule. The scheduling conflict with the Canadian Grand Prix, EURO 2012 and NASCAR on June 11 has been solved. TSN will show the Canadian Grand Prix. This means TSN2 will likely show the EURO 2012 games featuring Italy vs. Spain and Croatia vs. Ireland that afternoon.

TSN will continue to use BBC’s race coverage. Ben Edwards takes over from Martin Brundle as the main commentator this year, while David Clouthard returns as the co-commentator. Lee McKenzie returns to report from the pits.

Here is TSN’s press release with more information
