Caterham reveal first real sound of a 2014 F1 engine

2014 F1 season

The first real audio recording of a 2014 F1 engine has been revealed by Caterham.

The team recorded the sound of its Renault Energy F1 engine being fired up for the first time at its factory.

The sound of Formula One’s new engines has been a major point of discussion since the switch from normally aspirated 2.4-litre V8s to turbocharged 1.6-litre V6s was announced.

    years ago on the BBC martin brundle & DC harped on about exhaust burble on the over-run(just like my Morris Minor!) .It does not matter what they sound like so long as they are LOUD & more importantly,reliable

  2. I’ve never watched an f1 race for how it sounds, and i think for most of us, f1 tv viewers, the engine loudness makes hardly any difference, right? As an argentinian, the closest i get to F1 is Sao Paulo GP, and it’s like 2500km away, so i guess i’ll always get f1 in a tv set… doesn’t make any difference to me.
