I’m not a fan of the sound – it doesn’t have much grunt compared to what the current Formula 1 engine spec has, but I guess as with all things, you will get used to it. But probably the most alarming for me is that it sounds…well…distant and soulless. These cars are the ultimate racing vehicles – they should sound like beasts but all I hear is a very loud whine. I just don’t like it!

What do you think of the new musical instrument at the heart of Formula 1 from next year?
