Today the Mercedes AMG F1 team introduced a new exhaust for their F1 challenger designed for the sole purpose of making the new V6 power units louder after complaints that the sport is "too quiet" after they got rid of the V8 engines the sport has been using since 2006. While it is obvious that the new V6's don't emit the same noise that the engines of the past did, why does this warrant a complaint? F1 has proved to be a leader in integrating new technology into the sport, so over time, changes like this should be expected. I'll be the first to admit that I like the sound the V8's made more, but I'm not totally against the V6's, and certainly not to the point that I'd sue because it's not as loud.
