  1. Compare with post 2014 videos, listen… and cry. I still can’t get used to it.

    1. I agree, although I have got used to the new engine sound, I still miss the old.
      I have yet to attend a GP in person with these new engines but I’m sure I will miss the old sound even more when I do.

      1. They sound a bit better in person this year, but still not like an F1 car should. Something is wrong when you can carry on a conversation over the top of a full(ish) F1 field going past. Call me odd, but I liked the old days when a full F1 field could split eardrums!

          I agree, I know that some people are happy because they can now go and see a live GP with their small children and not even need ear protection. I appreciate that kids can go now, but to me that is absolutely not F1 at all.

          I have to say I am afraid I think the sound itself is awful, as well as being quiet………. I have been trying to work out what they remind me of ever since I heard them is person. It is not ‘vacuum cleaner’ or ‘strimmer’ I have decided, but more ‘kitchen waste disposal unit’………..

          I think it is a lack of revs, as much as anything. Current F1 cars are just not exciting any more.

          This year I watched the whole of the Melbourne weekend coverage on Channel Ten in Australia, when they were doing the passenger laps in the V10 2 seater, the sound made we want to cry almost……….

          How did this happen?

  2. pre 2014, not post :-)

  3. the one and only thing that is striking is the such a low sound made by the engine.

    That Thundering sound of the V8 and V10 are something to yearn for !!!!

  4. The engine sound on tv this year I think is better than last year. Its only on my IPad but the sound from the grandstands for the race start this year on the above clip is very underwhelming.
