I don’t know if anybody who reads the crap I write will care about this, but I’m gonna post it anyway.
I missed the Australian GP and so I wasn’t aware of the kerfluffle kicked up by the new engines. I turned up the volume for the start…and then turned it some more. I flipped channels to make sure my tv was working. I flipped back and they wre showing and in car and there ir was, “mrrrrrr”, or there it wasn’t, really loses a lot of the drama. The good news is Bernie Ecclestone wasn’t happy either.
Even worse, the cars were about 2 seconds slower per lap at Australia!
Apparently, F1’s new regs require a 1.6L turbo V6 limited to 15,000 RPM with some kind of fuel flow restricter. The point is to be more “environmentally friendly”. Stupid Euros.
Here’s a video of a comparison of 2013 vs this year.
