Comment of the day

Ecclestone is pushing for louder F1 cars but RogerA doesn’t want to lose what’s good about the current engines:

These current power units are amazing bits of kit that are producing a lot of power (the Mercedes is what somewhere around 900bhp now?) and for the first time in over a decade actually challenging the drivers in terms of the torque and drivers actually having to manage the throttle. not since the pre-traction control v10s have the cars been moving around so much under acceleration with wheelspin and drivers having to modulate the throttle rather than just putting there foot down without much worry.

I would not be against a bit more volume but I don’t feel that volume should come at the expense or be pushed as been more important than overall performance.
