AA Podcast #49 – Will Buxton, NBC Sports

On today's podcast we venture into the world of Formula 1 to chat with globetrotting NBC Sports pit reporter Will Buxton. Will covers every F1 race on the calendar live on-site for NBC and is in Monaco this week for the world's most glamorous race, the Monaco Grand Prix. NBC will be airing live coverage of the Monaco Grand Prix on broadcast network television this weekend. We chatted with Will from Monaco after Thursday's practice session about his work for NBC, the F1 season, and the magic of Monaco. Topics include…

-How he went from paying the way himself and camping at all the European grand prixs to working in television. 
-How Monaco is different than any other Formula 1 circuit and the magic of Monaco. 
-How Monaco compares to Indianapolis and Daytona. 
-Working with a broadcast crew that's often a continent away. 
-Growing F1 in the USA and why Formula One needs an American audience moreso than America needs F1. 
-The tire debate swirling around F1 at the moment. 
-How 3 time champ Sebastian Vettel compares to another multi-time German champion, Michael Schumacher, and more all-time greats. 
-The question surrounding Vettel's young legacy and who really is the most talented driver in F1. 
-The favorites this week in Monaco.
