Yes, yes we know. You do not like the new 1.6 engines, it just isn’t the same. We’ve heard the arguments. F1 is the pinnacle of motorsport racing and has no place for a measly 1.6 litre V6 engine that doesn’t rev to the moon and so on. While this correspondent doesn’t lament the introduction of these downsized engines, considering how skittery the cars have become at exits leading to the much-in-demand unpredictability that F1 fans so desire, we all are in agreement that day or night, we can always spare a couple of minutes to hear the soul stirring sounds of a Formula 1 V8.
Infiniti Red Bull Racing, in a video introducing Daniel Riccardio, the new addition to the team this year, gives you a fix, for the moment. In addition to the 2013 Red Bull Renault RB9 shredding rubber and screaming your ears off, there’s an F/A-18 Hornet piloted by FLTLT Michael Keightley as Bonus. Enjoy!
