NPR probably reaches fewer motorsports fans than Speedchannel.

Other than that, I wish I had heard the segment.

They talked to the marketing director for Williams on the sports show NPR has on saturday mornings. I do not know if it replays at other times. Apparently Williams has as a sponsor some smoking cure maker, or somethig like that. So it focused on how F1 (and they mentioned NASCAR also, for the one listener of NPR who may watch NASCAR) are getting away from tobbaco sponsors.
