    Having been out last night and not getting in until 7.30 this morning I had the pleasure of staying home and watching the f1 practice all day.

    Don't know if I'm going to be able to get my head around the sound of the new car, sounds very odd

    Very weird it's gonna take some getting used to and I'm gonna REALLY miss the screaming engines, but I still love it and can't wait for July :wink:

    I kinda like the whirring whistle noises they are making and the grunting in over run. I also noticed the sound of tyre squeal on long high speed corners something i never heard before except on braking lockups.

    I dont mind the sound at all

    have you seen the size of the turbo on these engines OMG they are massive

    800bhp running 3.5 bar of boost from a 1.6 ltr engine is mind boggling

    I'm not into f1 as I think it's boring follow my leader, but was actually looking forward to this with all new engines, break downs etc and quite enjoyed it, plenty of overtaking etc.
    They just need to put some playing cards on their spokes for a better sound :lol:

    playing cards, now that is technological advancement, big step up from the plastic carton trapped under the brake calipers :lol:

    you should apply for Adrian Nuey's job

    The lack of screaming engines definitely takes something away for me. Does give the impression that you are watching one of the lesser levels of racing.

    You should be O.K for ice cream at Silverstone Darren, you will be able to hear the ice cream van coming :shock: :lol:

    what they have done is made the car a lot harder to drive.. which brings driver skill into it more which is what we want to see more of tbh.. the last 4 years its been about the car too much... i think i would of been in with a chance of a world championship if red bull would of let me drive that car.

    now apart from the noise and the ugly looking nose, i cant think of anything else thats bad... oh and the fuel allowance is BS aswell but there is more positives than negatives about the changes IMHO
