this "omg save f1 sound" campaign is really pathetic. is f1 this vain? 10 years ago no one gave a t.oss about f1 sound, people just wanted to see exciting and close racing. now it's reduced to "omg f1 carz sound bad lulz!!!1!!one"

seriously, get a grip. i don't care what it sounds like, any petrol engine (in any configuration, inline 4, v6, v8, v12, boxer 6, whatever) revving to 12 or 14k rpms on an open exhaust is going to sound "racy" anyway.

Sad...... F1 is over for this long time race fan. The sport has been turned into a circus side show . This is leading edge in racing and now GP2 is as fast . From turbo V-10 to none turbo to rev limited to V-8 to rev limited and now 4 cyl. Banning everything the teams develop all for the show. What about racing! The fastest most technological advanced cars in the world. Its not F1 anymore , more of a side show of glitz and glimer for rich and famous, a place to be seen. Where are the days of Sena.....Prost......
