I'm just watching a bit of the GP2 feature race from Abu Dhabi on my PC via headphones and couldn't help but notice how very much nicer the GP2 engine note is than the current F1 cars. Yes, they are both V8s and the yes the GP2 engines rev much lower but the note, thrap and purr of the 4.0 litre V8 in the GP2 cars from the on board cam is far superior to the tinny, unbalanced sound from the 2.4 litre V8 in the current F1 cars. I won't miss the 2.4 V8s one bit. There appears to be truth in the American saying "no replacement for displacement".
Having done a bit of research on the saying here: http://www.pistonhea...i=20&mid=0&nmt=
Had to laugh at this regarding turbos:
"The quote should be "there's no replacement for being able to shovel a lot of air into your engine very quickly"; but that doesn't have quite the same ring to it. "
Guess I'll be in for a big disappointment next year.
