Spending the afternoon at the track and must say that the cars sound bloody terrible almost like a supercharged sewing machine

It sure isn't anything like the scream of the V8, or even the V10's, of old, but those turbos do sound sweet.

It's good to see the cars moving around so much in the corners again. Big, long slides; looks ace ;D

Should be an interesting race on Sunday.

Gotta say that v8 supercar volvo killed it in the sound department, think i will cross to the dark side of wearing a hat and driving straight with the left hand indicator flashing its head orf, Volvo looks the business aswell

Sums it up for me too.  I watched the F1's on TV today and my wife got sick of me telling her how crap they sounded  (although she did agree).  Maybe Volvo can join F1 and teach them how it's done!

The Volvos also see to sit a lot flatter through corners. Both the Holdens and Commodores seem to twitch around a bit more. The Mercs sounded nowhere near as nice as the others.

The jet passover at 4pm certainly shook the windows at work

Spent the afternoon there yesterday (hard day at the office :)). The V8 Mercs sounded like there was a million rotating parts that would let go at any moment. Even the Aussie V8s were tame compared to previous years. They're running on E85 so even the smell is "mild". An F1 from 2010/11? did a few laps and that was a much better noise.

Oh well, that's progress.

Disagree, the Holden and Ford note hasn't changed too much, still sounds 'chunky'.
The Merc has an F1 sound at the top end like the "Old Days of an F1" ie last year. Nice.
The Volvo has a sweet sweet Sportscar/Eruo sound and the Nissan..............well that's just Jap Crap.

Just heard them for the first time, I reckon they sound grouse just very quiet. I think the reason why everyone is upset is because its so different to last year. I think the noise will be a non issue after a few rounds. Personally I grew up playing with turbos so it's sounds sweet to me :cheers:
They use to sound like a bloody blow fly on steroids anyway ;D

Yep! Top effort Riciardo especially on your debut with Red Bull and at your home track.  :cup:
Damn shame about Vettel (not) did'nt even make the top ten.  ;D
Good Luck for tomorrow.

Are we safe to say we have an OZ F1 driver that can actually drive for a change? Considering the last one was a dud  ;D

Yeah, top effort by the young fella. The reaction of the crowd when he stuck it on provisional pole was awesome. Vettel got the same reaction when he failed to make Q3 :'( ;D ;D ;D ;D
I'm starting to like these new cars the more I see of them, they look like a handful to drive, and the sound is growing on me. Finally we might have a competitive season this year with driver skill playing more part instead of the point and squirt, Vettel wins again years we've had recently.
Looking forward to the race tomorrow, hopefully Ricciardo keeps his form up.

Mate, agree full stop. Fair dinkum, to quote another thread, Paul Morris could have been a contender in the past few years if he could have fitted into a RBR.

I think it's such a massive shock on the senses after having V8's, V10's and V12's over the last 20 years revving beyond 20,000RPM.  The sound is growing on me, but I'm loving how the cars are dancing around so much.

I'm so looking forward to the starts,  22 turbo's spooling up and an extremely difficult car to get off the line.

Well done Ricciardo ;D
Drove a flawless race for a thoroughly deserved 2nd on the podium. Awesome!
Mercedes look very strong early in the season, but young Magnusson looks the goods in the McLaren. The Williams is looking really good too.
Couldn't be happier for Ricciardo!

Daniel Ricciardo is under investigation for a fuel issue, and coud possibly be disqualified.

Ricciardo disqualified!

Apparently what Red Bull did regarding their fuel flow sensor wasn't illegal in itself: what was illegal was them doing it without getting FIA approval beforehand.
Camping is great as long as the mattress is inner spring!
