New F1 motors sound like ass ????

Dunno what the configuration or rev limit is, but I miss the screaming 18K rpm whine of last year's power plants.

Anyone else?

Reminds me of my old CR900SS Duc. I like the sound, but I also miss the higher revs.

The turbos and especially the ERS-K system muffle the exhaust extremely well, evidently. I miss the NA V10's though; I went to the race in Montreal in 2006 and holy hell, that noise was an experience.

Personally I think they sound better.I didn't much care fore the screeching ear piercing howl of previous years. The new engines actually have a discernible exhaust note now.

They sound like jet engines. Where's the F1?

I found this while looking for something else. It's a great period documentary about the design and construction of Cosworth's first turbo F1 engine.
