Having not been to a F1 race since 2012 (V8's), I can't comment on how the volume of the cars sound on track, but from a pure "television" point of view, I enjoy the volume of the new engines as you can hear other car noises better now, such as tyres locking up into corners etc.

Wasn't the actual safety car out yesterday? We didn't see the VSC did we?
VSC first, then the actual safety car came out after about a lap. They should have quite easily thrown yellows out like they have for the last how ever many years instead of almost causing another accident with drivers slamming on their brakes the second that the 'Virtual Safety Car' is called.

Damn right Darth! You like that post! :thumbsu:

I'm a bit conflicted now that I'm aware Macca liked my post. Guy has just given Raikkonen a whack! :cry:

It's nice Damo kind of backed me up. But he's a foxtel viewer. I've got those blokes lined up in my sights later on :p

The 2 he got in other peoples cars, 83 and 87 IIRC and I mean in 1980 he was being brained by DJ until that famous incident. I will qualify my statement by saying he was a very very good driver but not really deserving of the god like status he has.

V6s are a good move for F1 it was just poorly worded/ executed.

and

A Cost cap was required and should have been enforced.

Cross entering was legal at the time...
Other drivers had done it before, only they didn't win...

as for his god like status... different times back then.
