NBC Sports confirms Will Buxton joining 2013 F1 announcing crew

NBC Sports Group announced Wednesday that Will Buxton will serve as reporter for its Formula 1 coverage. Buxton will join his former SPEED colleagues Leigh Diffey (play-by-play), David Hobbs (analyst) and Steve Matchett (analyst), who joined NBC Sports Group in November.

“Our F1 team is now complete," said Sam Flood, executive producer, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network. “Will is relentless in the pits and his genuine passion for the sport is evident to viewers. We're very pleased to have him. Combined with Leigh, David and Steve, we are now ready for our first F1 season this March."

In October, it was announced that NBC Sports Group will televise all F1 races, as well as qualifying, practice sessions, studio shows and re-airs that amount to more than 100 hours of programming annually. NBC Sports Live Extra, available online at NBCSports.com, as well as on mobile and tablet apps, will serve as the F1 live-stream platform.
