Mercedes says engines will be louder in 2016 F1 season

Because of revised F1 rules on exhausts, Mercedes AMG Petronas technical chief Paddy Lowe said that F1 cars are sure to be ‘significantly’ louder this upcoming 2016 season. Since the shift to the new power units, many fans and enthusiasts have complained that the sound you hear as an F1 car speeds by just isn’t the same anymore–and it’s not a very good change. The sound of an engine’s roar is part of any F1 race’s atmosphere, and the power units just aren’t providing the same kind of auditory oomph as engines of many seasons past.

F1: Rosberg takes pole, Lewis in P2 for Abu Dhabi GP

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is the final race of the 2015 Formula One season, and Mercedes was true to form in qualifying. Nico Rosberg grabbed pole position ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton, giving the team a season record 15th front-row lockout. There’s really nothing left to play for for these two Mercedes drivers. The team clinched the constructors title in what seems like ages ago, and it’s been a few races since Hamilton was crowned 2015 champion.
