    I was in Melbourne at the start of the year. It was my first Grand Prix so I can’t really compare the V6’s againts the V8’s (with the exception of the single V8 demo car).

    As a whole I did like the sound. I have attended numerous V8 Supercar events and the volume of the F1 compared to the V8 Supercars was noticibly lower, although the sound was much more interesting to listen to; you can hear different elements of the engine working, plus tyre noise and cars running over curbs. I found that the same car passing the same section of track would make a different sound each time it went past, presumably because of the different power settings the driver is playing around with.

    As a whole, I do like the sound of the engines. It probably could do with being a touch louder to keep the ‘Wow’ factor that so many have described, however the actual noise itself is great.

    I had a look at the F1 shop at Elizabeth street this morning. No Sauber merchandise unfortunately. If anyone sees any around the track or in the city I would be very happy! :)

    I spent a good chunk of today at the track wondering around.

    One question: Are there any Sauber merchandise stands inside the circuit. I saw heaps of Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes, but there didn’t seem to be any stands selling Merchandise for Williams, Force India, Sauber or the new teams.

    Just wondering if there actually aren’t any, or if Im just blind and I can’t see them?

    Cheers :)

    I’m flying into Melbourne first thing Thursday morning after my wonderful Girlfriend bought me tickets. It will be my first time at a Grand Prix so I’m very excited!

    After we check into the hotel (We’re staying right in the centre of the city), I’m hoping to head straight to the track. Obviously there is no F1 action on the Thursday but I’m planning to spend the day looking for good spots to watch the action from. I plan on checking out Turn 2, as well as the fast corners on the other end of the circuit. Are there any other spots people would recommend?

    I’ve been to the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide for the last 6/7 years straight and once the on-track activity has finished in the afternoons, the track is opened up and you’re allowed to walk it. I assume this is also the case at the GP?

    I walked the track on the Thursday at Clipsal this year and I watched a few of the teams practicing pit stops while I stood on the other side of the pit wall. Is it likely that the F1 teams would be at the track late on the Thursday doing things like this?

    Thanks Guys! :)
