Formula 1 returns to North America this weekend for the Canadian Grand Prix, and following the tantalizing race in Monaco last time out, it promises to be a great event.

Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will go toe-to-toe once again in the battle for the championship lead, but the advantage currently lies with the German driver after his win in Monaco.

The first on-track action in Canada this weekend will be the first free practice session. CLICK HERE to watch FP1 via live stream. Coverage starts at 11am ET.

FP1 will see American driver Alexander Rossi get out on track for the first time this year for Caterham. The team’s reserve driver is vying for an F1 seat in the near future, and this run-out should allow him to get to grips with the 2014 car. We spoke to him yesterday about his future and the possibility of a drive with Gene Haas’ new F1 team.

With a 50/50 chance of rain, it could be a very interesting first session. Who will draw first blood in Canada? Find out by watching FP1 live from 11am ET. CLICK HERE to watch via live stream.

Please note that there will be no commentary from the NBCSN team for this session, but it will instead purely be the FOM world feed.

    Did you guys really just remove Apple TV airplay functionality from the NBC sports live app? How evil is that?

    NBC exec #1 “You know, despite increasing prices, decreasing content, and making cable essentially one big commercial break briefly interrupted by occasional content, young kids are dropping cable and turning to pirated streams more and more.”

    NBC exec #2 “I just don’t get it, but what can we do?”

    Exec #1 “What if we made a streaming app with extra content for our subscribers.”

    Exec #2 “You mean treat our subscribers as valued customers?”

    Exec #1 “Don’t be crazy! We’ll fill it with commercials, require them to regularly renew their login, remove the commentary from the sporting events, and block the functionality allowing them to view the content they paid for on their TVs.”

    Subscribers: “Screw that, we’re cutting cable and just pirating what we want if you’re going to be unreasonable about it.”

    Execs: “you can’t do that! We’re a monopoly. We’re entitled to your money without doing anything to earn it!”

    Subscribers: flip a Will Power Double Bird while walking away.

    Is anyone else having trouble using Charter to verify access to F1 (NBC SN) on NBC Sports Live Extra (app and website). I called Charter as the error message suggested but they were not very helpful. The error says my Charter subscription does not include NBC SN, but that is not correct since I can watch the channel on my TV.

    I love that F1 free practice 1 and 3 are streamed on NBC Sports Live Extra, but there’s not much point if I can’t access the streams!!!
