    Now own just a lowly Viper
    In comparison that V6 sounds like a diesel truck engine.

    For me, the best thing about watching those types videos is that there are no announcers with diarrhea of the mouth and you get to actually hear the engines and view the race from the drivers perspective. I almost can't stand to watch Formula 1 racing because of the announcers.

    Ted,

    Nearly all racing is getting that way. The dam announcers want the TV time and to be the stars and they hog it to much.

    The V6 engines sounds like a herd of very sick cows. When they go all electric it will just be worse.
    The one line never heard in Heaven "Gee! I wish I had spent a little more time in the office."

    Ya, you're right Ron. I guess that to me, the F1 announcers just seem to be another rung higher on the obnoxious scale.
