Yeah it should be faster,more HP, better like 10years ago, but its slower, weaker, less HP and now the sound is c**p too. Even GP2 is louder!!
Every series in the world trys to improve from year to year how to make the car faster, only F1 is looking how to make the cars slower!!!
Where is here the motorsport?
While watching the track side cameras, I was not getting that feeling of speed from the cars around the corners, typical from the past decades, so I was waiting for a chance to confirm that and, during FP2, I saw the speedmeter on one of Rosberg's early race simulation lap, and the cornering speed is the same as Audi's LMP1 during WEC's round in COTA. For instance, around 170kmh on T6, 160kmh at T7, 80kmh on T12, 200 growing to 230kmh from T16-T18 and 90kmh on last corner....
LMP1 cars accelerate a lot slower and reach only 290kmh in top speed versus 330kmh of F1, though. That's where mainly the laptime gap comes from.
I don't like that a much ligthter F1 car is on the same level of a heavy Audi P1 car, specially when prototype's aerodynamics doesn't ruin close racing and don't need gimmickies such as the disgraceful DRS.
I like the PUs, but DRS must leave immediately, imho. I hope this race doesn't turn into another DRS-fest but rather more like the hard battle we had at the Porsche Cup race.
