F1 » Rosberg: 'Megaphone exhaust' made no change


For the spectacle of racing I'd prefer to watch motorcycles or rally cars rather than F1 any day. Frankly I couldn't give rats what the things sound like...it's about pushing the limits of SPEED! I think you guys are taking the F1 car for granted because they are so good at achieving incredible acceleration, handling, and braking. The noise is and always will be completely irrelevant. These are the fastest, most technologically advanced race vehicles the world has ever witnessed and you're all pissing on about the noises. The fact that this is the consensus around here is quite disturbing in my opinion.

F1 » Button tells drivers to stop complaining


@seashAck I'm a racer and a racing fan period. F1 IS racing...one need not be an "expert" to understand that. The definition of racing is quite simple...need not be an "expert" to understand that either. The sound of the power unit isn't a factor in racing. I've witnessed virtually every motor racing vehicle you can imagine IN PERSON. I have competed in many dirt track and road racing motorcycle events. I'm quite aware of what racing engines sound like past and present. I don't comment on f1 very often because I simply don't enjoy the discipline as much as other forms of racing. I have in fact attended 3 modern f1 races and have seen first hand countless historic f1 cars pitside and in action having attended the Monterey historic races for 15 years now. Living in the past is definitely not the spirit of F1. Stop moaning about what was and start accepting what will be.

F1 » Button tells drivers to stop complaining


For real Seakay? I told you my exact position on this yesterday in the other "noise" thread. Explained exactly what my history is as a fan of motor racing and the fact that I'm a racer myself. "it's a show". Sorry buddy but this is racing ...not a car show. If f1 cars look or sound good to you at the moment it's only because that look and sound have lead to increased performance. These thing aren't designed to look and sound good to you and then made into race cars as an after thought. If the engines fall silent it will be because greater or cleaner performance has required it. I grew up around racing and the sights, smells, and yes SOUNDS, are still very evocative but they don't mean anything in regards to what the future holds. The only certainty in life is change...get used to it:)

F1 » Button tells drivers to stop complaining


Real racers and race fans will always appreciate the fastest vehicles on earth. The "fans" obsessing over trivial factors like noise or the lack thereof can kick rocks. Racing will continue regardless. I don't argue this based on political ideology, I base my arguement on progress. For anyone to sit here today and take advantage of the progress humankind have made on this planet(computers,etc) and not recognize what is occurring in regards to racing and transportation in general as the same sort of progression seems a bit, well....you know. Seakay, you seem to be hanging on to the past. "Change for the sake of change"...really? Is that how you view the transition to clean and renewable energy sources? It's called change for the sake of survival. Stop holding us back by holding on so tightly to the mistakes of yesterday.
