F1 agrees to turn up the volume

F1 agrees to turn up the volume

Although no immediate solution is at hand, F1 teams and the powers-that-be have agreed to look for a way to increase the engine noise.

The sound of the new 1.6-litre V6 engines has been heavily criticised by many in Formula One; drivers and fans alike.

This prompted FIA president Jean Todt to meet with the teams in Bahrain where it was agreed they would try find a soltuation.

"It's something we have been addressing with all the manufacturers involved in F1, to address the thing even with the new regulations," Todt told Autosport.

"So we must see if we can implement in short, medium, long term, a bigger noise. And that we will do and we will get unanimous agreement."

Pressed as to a timeframe for this happening, the Frenchman said: "It's very difficult for me to give you an accurate answer.

"I have been asked to address the problem of the noise. It is a problem which creates some concern.

"I feel that we can apply it with the unanimous agreement of how to apply it, then we will do it.

"After Barcelona there will be two days testing, so hopefully there is something that can be tested."
