Was watching the first practice session, the cars sound terrible I think!! However the sound of the turbo is nice! But it sounds like a bunch of diesel lorrys racing around!! Opinions?

Yeah they sound awful when flat out !!. They only sound halfway decent when going down through the gears or starting of ( I heard the McLaren doing a practice start this morning sounded interesting ! )

Great start to the season!! think we're in for a good one. I think Magnussen will be one to watch for the future. Shame about Bottas rubbing the wall but them Williams are finally competitive again which is great to see.

I quite like the sound of the cars TBH and the fact that the sound of tires screeching can be heard is a bit mad:p:p

Ricciardo disqualified as his car was running too much fuel flow.
Sucks for dani as Ilike seeing him get it,

Great race for bottas and Williams, they are looking to have a strong season.

And magnessun what a start for him, diue to the disqualification he finished 2nd in his debut race, definitely one to watch,

It's great to see some overtaking and not looking at a red bull walking away from the rest of the field but the noise from them is just plain wrong.a f1 car should sound like a f1 car not a modern hot hatch.

I dont mind the sound really, I still prefer the old sound but its the volume I have an issue with.
The cars look like a real handful so that should make thinks more interesting as the year goes on.

Roll on Monaco :D:cool:

Good race, looks like Mercedes is going to walk the first few races anyway. Rest of the field seems evenly matched. Ferrari's pace is disappointing though, but good to see Williams back up there.

Was not gone on the sound at first but soon got used to it watching the race.

The mercedes advantage this early on is purely aerodynamics according to their engineers, they're expecting the others to have caught up very soon.... could change a lot in the next few races
