STAMFORD, Conn. - Dec. 3, 2015 - In its third season presenting Formula One(TM), NBC Sports Group's 2015 coverage of all 19 races across NBC, NBCSN and CNBC produced its highest viewership, highlighted by NBCSN delivering the most-watched F1 season for a single cable network in two decades, according to The Nielsen Company.

Overall, NBC Sports Group's F1 coverage on NBC/NBCSN/CNBC averaged 521,000 viewers, up 14 % vs 2014 (457,000), and up 42% from its inaugural season of F1 coverage in 2013 (366,000).

NBCSN averaged 418,000 viewers for its live coverage of 13 races this season, up 9% vs. 2014 (385,000), to rank as the best F1 season for a single cable network since 1995 (ESPN; 755,000 viewers).

An NBCSN record five races averaged more than 500,000 viewers (Bahrain, Spain, Austria, Belgium and Singapore), highlighted by 630,000 average viewers for the Bahrain Grand Prix on April 19, which was the most-watched non-domestic F1 race on cable in eight years (2007 Brazilian Grand Prix; 662,000 on SPEED).

Date Race '15 Viewers '14 Viewers % Diff
