  • F1 sounds terrible

    Yuck! 2014 F1 cars sound like street AMG Mercedes muffled cars. Part of F1 I enjoy is the music.

      That's reason #1 I went to COTA last year. Wanted to hear a shrieking 18,000 N/A F1 car in the flesh before they were extinct.

      Be thankful they are still at least partially ICE. By the time I'm put into the ground, I suspect they'll not have crankshafts and pistons.

      Aside from their cost I never understood why people race them.

        A rotary F1 car would be wicked.

            Turbos are cool, but it's hard going back after that NA sound!

            Lexus and their acoustic department should get into F1.. Their LFA sounds better at 9k than these cars at 13-15k

                Agreed. They sound as bad as the Indy V6 engines, and maybe it's me but they don't look as quick.

                  The French could only dream of an engine so reliable

                    They'll have to award points at the end of each lap actually completed...



                    Actually, it would be pretty cool. Well, anything would be better than today.

                    When V10's came out I thought the idea of 10 cylinders was just odd... but now I really miss them.

                        When you heard the old cars it was like, "HOLY [email protected]!". These cars sound like formula prius. Very blah.

                          I bet they sound much better in the flesh than on TV.
                          The N/A engines sounded awesome, but I love all the swooshing, banging and popping that turbo engines make too..

                            I have to agree with you. The turbo growl sounds a lot meaner than the old engines. I like it. Not more or less, just like.
                            Whats cool in a geeky high tech way us all the energy capture/release hardware whines, whooshes on pit entry exit. Sounds like a fully psychotic big brother to my Prius and all the muted noises it makes.

                            Funny and scary to see mechanics wearing massive rubber gloves when pushing Maldonados car in. To me, that speaks of the extinction level energy stored in these fiendish four wheel space shuttles.

                            The old cars, while raw and awesome, now seem so archaic with their fixed valve timing, 14.0:1 compression, fixed length intakes. Its like NASCAR getting DOHC heads, IRS and flat bottoms. Oh wait, thats V8 Supercars..

                              lump me in with the like the new noise crew but I think turbos and their sounds are neato.
