F1: Can You Hear Me Now?

So I don’t know if this is part of the never ending SMOKE ON! Err, smoke ‘N mirrors Formula One-itus self propagating Newspeak that seemingly is de rigour in F1. NO-NO! DON’T look over here at Uncle Bernaughty’s $44-million BRIBERY Payoff... Move along and Follow the Birdie! As it’s just conveniently come to light that the current Formula 1 rules for 2014’s vaunted “Greening” of F1 could see the introduction of silent starts – WTF? You’ve gotta be absolutely FUCKING joking, right???

Now don’t get me wrong, as I don’t have a problema with the powers-to-be trying to make Grand Prix racing appear to be environmentally friendly “Wink-Wink; Nudge-Nudge,” by showcasing the latest CleanTec gadgetry, as hybrids are all fine ‘N dandy; BUTT! As a Formula One Aficionado of a quarter century now... One of my most drawing features to attending multiple Grand Prix’s over the decades has simply been the symphonic rhapsody of hearing 24 borciferously MAD buzzing hornets rocket off from their standing start, along with listening to those raging Landsharks SCREAM by at 18,000RPM’s – Kapishe FIA!

Do we really wanna watch George Jetson AstroCarz SILENTLY whisking by on levitated racetracks? C’mon Jean Todt; DON’T TAKE AWAY MY ENGINE NOISE IN 2014!

Hmm? What happens if they’re using Lucas ‘Lectrics, eh?
 Oh Never Mind!
