What do you guys think... I think the 10 sounds 100% better. I did not expect this drastic of a change...

10
8

Also here is a small video clip...

The V10 sends shivers up my spine. The V8 in comparison sounds like it's underwater or something.

A member on Autosport-Atlas said the V8 in the McLaren may have been running on lower revs. It does sound lower than the V8 Toyboata I heard at Monza testing earlier.

What made F1 unique from champ and Indy cars was the high tech engines and chassis. Now it seems they are getting dumbed down and slower. Honda cant use alot of their advances and new ideas. I dont see a point in F1 if there is no technology involved.

Honda would leave F1 if that was the case.

As for the V8, it sounded like it was revving lower than the V10.

Not only that, but I was under the impression that most testing is being done with a rev limited V10. Even Honda. Are you sure that isn't a rev limited V10 with all of the banned material removed. I mean, did the current formula have variable intake runners?
