Comment of the day

The world champions’ new car appeared for the first time yesterday and SM liked the sound of it:

That Mercedes sounds beautiful when you listen to it from the cockpit like in that video! It might be too early to tell, but it sounds more like the Honda engine than last year’s Mercedes.

FOM should put all the microphones for the television onboard audio in the cockpit.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to Mondol and Carlitox!
