F1 » Ecclestone warns quieter F1 could be costly

Buzz45: I don't get what Ron Dennis is saying about revs. If you had two similar cars, one with a straight through exhaust, and one with a silencer (muffler), they would sound different to each other, even at the same rpm. Am I missing something in what Dennis is saying ?
Buzz, There's no mention of silencers (mufflers) because they're not used in F1. Dennis is saying everyone's exhaust is the same at the moment, short in length (because that's a rule) and really wide bore to prevent back pressure on the turbo, that's what's giving them the bassy note, add that to the lack of revs and you get what we have now, no high pitched scream, no volume, no fun. :(
Yes, but my point is still valid, it's not the revs that create the noise. Just listen to last years cars coming out of the garage at low revs. They were still ear piercing (Sorry Lulu !) And of course I knew that F1 cars don't have mufflers, I use to watch F1 in the mid 1960

F1 » Button tips Marussia to surprise

BT MacLaren did not manage to get the updates out to Bahrain that they hoped to, did you know that? Also, we don't know how much fuel he was carrying, which tyres he was on, or how much power he was using etc., etc.. Wait till Oz and then we will really see who's up there and who isn't.
