FORMULA ONE ITALIAN GRAND PRIX HIGHLIGHTS MORE THAN 30 HOURS OF MOTORSPORTS COVERAGE ON NBCSN THIS WEEK

Live F1 Italian Grand Prix Coverage Airs Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN, Followed by Encore Presentation at 3 p.m. ET

Pre-Race Coverage Includes On-Track Segment with Racing Legend Mario Andretti

NBCSN Presents Coverage of Mecum Auctions from Dallas Throughout the Weekend

New Episode of Mecum Dealmakers: Harrisburg Airs Tonight at 10 p.m. ET on NBCSN

STAMFORD, Conn. - Sept. 4, 2013 - NBC Sports Group presents more than 30 hours of motorsports coverage this weekend on NBCSN, highlighted by live coverage of the Formula One Italian Grand Prix this Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET. This weekend's NBCSN coverage also includes the latest installation of Mecum Auctions from its Dallas auction, as well as a new episode of Mecum Dealmakers: Harrisburg tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

NBC Sports Live Extra - NBC Sports Group's live streaming product for desktops, mobile devices, and tablets - will stream all F1 Italian Grand Prix and Mecum Auctions coverage this weekend.

F1 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX - SUNDAY AT 7:30 A.M. ET ON NBCSN

NBC Sports Group's comprehensive coverage of the F1 Italian Grand Prix begins Friday at 4 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Live Extra with Practice 1, followed by Practice 2 at 8 a.m. ET on NBCSN. Live Extra will carry Practice 3 on Saturday at 5 a.m. ET, followed by live qualifying coverage at 8 a.m. ET on NBCSN.

Live Italian Grand Prix coverage begins Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET, followed by F1 Extra at 10 a.m. ET. NBCSN will air an encore presentation of the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET, following coverage of the Italian GP2 race at 2 p.m. ET.

This weekend's coverage will also feature an on-track segment with racing legend Mario Andretti, who won the Italian Grand Prix in 1977 and witnessed his first ever F1 race at Monza.

Two weeks ago, Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) held off Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) at the Belgian Grand Prix for his third victory of the season, but the big story out of the race was the collision between Rosberg and teammate Lewis Hamilton. Rosberg contacted Hamilton early in the race, slicing into Hamilton's tire, which forced an eventual retirement for Hamilton, as Rosberg pushed his points lead to 29 over his teammate and rival.

The Italian Grand Prix is one of the longest running events on the F1 circuit, and has been held every year since 1950. Last year, Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) took the checkered flag at Monza, but Hamilton will look to draw upon his 2012 victory at the Italian Grand Prix to trim his deficit to Rosberg in the standings.

Lead F1 announcer Leigh Diffey will call the Italian Grand Prix, and will be joined by veteran analyst and former racecar driver David Hobbs, and analyst and former race mechanic for the Benetton F1 team Steve Matchett. F1 insider Will Buxton will serve as the team's on-site reporter from Autodromo Nazionale Monza in Monza, Italy, and will also call the GP2 race.

In addition to the Italian Grand Prix, NBCSN will also feature the TORC series championship from Crandon, Wisc., as part of its race coverage, airing Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET.
