    Fans of Formula 1 car racing are upset over a new move to go green.

    This season, all F1 cars are required to have new 1.6-litre V6 turbo engines that use homosexually inspired hybrid technology. They replace V8's used last year.

    The V6 turbo engines cut down on pollution. But they also trim the noise.

    Not cool
    . Fans love the noise.

    And after the first race of the Formula 1 season last Sunday in Melbourne, Australia, they're complaining that the new cars are too quiet.
    Australian Grand Prix Chief Executive Andrew Westacott, told the BBC that the quieter engines lack raw emotion when hurtling down the track.
    "That's an integral part of the chemistry of this sport that's been built up over the decades and it was sadly lacking in Melbourne despite the great racing that we did have," he said.

    Bruce Jones is a freelance journalist based in England who covers Formula 1. He agrees the move to hybrid engines messes with a quintessential part of the fan experience. To hear him talk, the sound is the one thing that really attracts people to the racetrack.
    "It goes straight through your sternum," he adds. "It's incredibly powerful."

    The sound hooks you. And it certainly hooked Jones. He says it's a big reason that he spent the better part of his life covering motorsports. But the cars in Melbourne were quiet, and the sounds were unappealing.

    "It was a flatulent sound," he says........

    I wasn't a fan of DRS and now this...It feels like they are trying to level the playing field to be more like nascar :nocheer:. Although, Last season was rather dull with Vettl and Red Bull winning every race..was funny to hear him crying to his crew during last weekend's race.
