First qualifying gave some surprising results. Let's hope for an exiting race. A totally new engine, so chances are we may have some reliability issues.

A little sound comparison. 2014 V8 engine versus 2013 powerplant.

+ YouTube Video

Are we sure it is not the microphone settings? I did hear some test bank sound tracks, and it didn't sound this bad

Even Bernie Ecclestone admits he hates the lack of sound in F1

I think the sound is fine. The noise in the in car shots on TV reminded me of riding a road Ducati which isn't that bad. If F1 is becoming greener with turbo hybrid technology then it's consistent that the noise should reduce too. Everybody seems to have got used to the Audis at Le Mans and now it's the non-diesel LMP cars that sound odd to me.

I love the sound of the Spyker because it is real, but hate the idea of manufactured sound that is appearing in mclarens and maseratis.

Max had some video from a friend that was in Monaco today. The noise is still very loud, it is just not that high pitched. I'm ok with that....
