Formula One underwent a new stage of evolution this season with the implementation of new engine rules and other modifications in its set of standards. While this has been seen as a major improvement in the history of the sport, fans and the higher ups of F1 like Bernie Ecclestone have shown their dismay with the resulting noises of the new engines.
