Great action today. Cars are loud but not V8/V10 loud.
We need more revs.

I have been fortunate enough to go every year and nothing compares to the first year. Either way, I had a blast.

Parking was a pain as usual. I saw a few Cayennes lined up in force. Where were the X5s?

Yeah I was there all weekend too. Complete exaggeration that F1 cars are too quiet.

Are they as ear bleeding loud as they once were...no. But they still make good noise and some additional cool high tech noises as well(from energy recovery systems).

Great race, everyone was cheering loud when Ham made the pass.

Ok...so should Hamilton pull a Senna, circa 1990 at Suzuka? Purposely wreck into Rosberg at Abu Dhabi to clinched the championship and nullify this BS double points.

Yea, the main grand stand went nuts when he made the pass and again when he crossed the main straight after making the pass

I'm glad everyone dislikes Rosberg.

I actually do think the cars are too quiet. I've been all 3 years and turn 11 was very quiet this year. You had to be close to the fence and listening intently to hear the downshifts particularly over the announcers.

Now in the main grandstand area with the tunnel effect the sound was just the right volume (still no earplugs needed).

I'd doubt that. He had the momentum, and there's not enough "bad blood" between them that would make him to deliberately crash and DNF two Mercedes. At least what Senna did was crashing out a Ferrari.

I do agree, the final race doubt points is BS. If HAM lose the WDC because of this, it'd really suck and made me sick.

I think this season, HAM really proved himself a worthy champion on the track. As well his mentality and racecraft.

I can hear you guys scream when LH made the pass on NR. And retake the lead on the final pit stop!

Finally over the years, there's a proper race track for F1 in US. And fully deserved, with great racing since 2012.

Yea, I wish they were 5dB louder. Some of the support races seemed louder

Like you said, with the v8s, the downshifts were epic sounding

I had ear plugs. I was in GA between 18 and 19.

I would be ok with these motors revving to 18k and with real blown diffusers.

My buddy had never been to a race and as soon as he saw the first car he said he became a fan.


The V10s on the Indy main straight, with the sound echoing off the grandstands will NEVER be duplicated.
