When you can hear the cars at all they sound terrible. Very disappointing.

And the sound is going to take some getting used to.
Agreed, I think the cars look and sound like sheet. They sound like /worse than, GT cars.

That was a pretty decent show.

Maranello is like Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, but most of the candy is red. :-)

Not really a fan of the styling of the FF that they lent Buxton and Swales, but its a damn sight better looking than the Panamera, IMHO.

Lots of pomp and circumstance when one gets meeting Montezumela, eh?

Watching it now. Really looking forward to "Horsepower". It looks more F1 related.

Buxton was crying when he sat in the Dino. Said that was the car that made him fall in love with Ferrari as a boy. Pretty cool.

Even if you hate Ferrari, "Horsepower" is a must see for any F1 fan. Very insightful and gives you a real appreciation for what it takes to compete in F1. Also what the teams have been through to develop these 2014 cars.
Probably nothing new to any of us but interesting nevertheless.

Not that this is surprising, but the power units sound AWFUL! I had seen the youtube vids, but to hear it on my AV system.....YUCK! I don't see how that will "grow on me". They sound like Buell motorcycles. eek.gif

Watched P1 live last nite, couldnt believe it when Lewis was the first one to have car troubles. Good to see Fernando quick. Massa too. Some of the cars though, as i have been saying, i cant stand looking at those noses!!!

Why cant women like sports???? Damn, right now i got P2 on the DVR and i cant watch it because wifey is sitting watching her damn real estate shows and reality shows. I told her that soon we need to get a second DVR in the second bedroom, i record so many good things than have to fight for viewing time with all her damn wedding shows, real estate shows, reality shows, decorating shows, etc. I got GOOD stuff on the DVR, sports, science, sci-fi, car shows, horror, etc. Help me..........eek.gif

I think the Buell sounds a bit better. Especially the new EBR. But your right,they do sound bad and look bad.

I'm no Buell expert, but that was the only thing that sounded similar that I could think of. Not that the sound is a bad sound for a bike, but for a Formula 1 car? HELL NO!

I thought the last F1 cars were butt ugly, so the 2014 iteration doesn't look significantly worse to me. Although I loved the high-pitched banshee wail of the old naturally aspirated engines, I think I will soon get used to the throatier growl of the new blown engines. To my mind, the sound of a racing engine is the sound of a racing engine. That's faint praise but there it is. Boogity, boogity, boogity, lets go racin'. smile.gif

To put it gently, a few complications have been created by the new rules:
  • Dealing with different, and less stable, handling characteristics caused by narrower wings, greater weight, and God knows what else.
  • Discovering different fuel management strategies caused by the reduction in the amount of fuel allowed per race
  • Learning how to get the most out of new and utterly different tires
  • Mastering the complications caused by the new, highly complex, and so far largely unreliable power systems

I'm sure I have overlooked other and equally critical problems that have to be solved but those on my list are going to be daunting enough. Anybody want to suggest an over/under number of DNFs in Sunday's race?

Agreed. Most if not all of them are afraid to even run in P3.
btw The rule change for this year means the "engines" (whatever that includes) must last for 5 race weekends.

Not sure I'm quite that pessimistic but I wouldn't be a bit surprised if it is that bad, or worse.

As I confessed when I posted my list of potential problems created by the new rules for the teams and drivers, I was sure there were others I hadn't thought of. The requirement that the power systems, or whatever they are, have to last for five races is an example. My God! It's going to be a bloodbath. Nevertheless, bring it on! smile.gif
