The Honda is by far the best sounding of the Turbo era and has been since the start. Luckily they finally seem to have found a way to combine great sound with at least some speed and reliability.

level 2

I agree . Just listen to them under pit limitors; it sounds like a wild cougar being poked with a stick.

level 2

They sound stunning live. The downshifts make nice popping sounds

level 2

Man, you really don’t get a sense of just how fast an F1 car is until you see someone’s iPhone video from the stands. That’s impressive.

level 1

Man, I really wish the Honda engine sounded like this in game.

level 2

In the F1 game? It kind does/did. At least, I remember Honda powered cars having a distinct sound either in F1 2016 or 2018.

level 1

Sitting at Turn 2 the Honda engine in all cars sound angry.

level 2

Talking about sounds, if you’re at turn 2 you’ll probably hear this…i can’t figure out what they are…but there will be 2 loud noises before the car appears…(almost sounds like someone blowing a low note thru a sax) my bud and I calls it the war cry before the car enters….any idea what those are?

level 1

Anyone knowledgeable enough to eli5 why that happens? It seems it’s on downshifts?

level 2

Unburnt fuel igniting in the exhaust does that

level 2

yes it happens on downshifts because when you downshift you rapidly cut the throttle input which causes the engine to temporarily run rich, leading to an incomplete burn that explodes in the exhaust system instead of the combustion chamber

level 1

Max was rev-ing the engine in the tunnel between corner 18-19 of his outlap in Q3

level 1

Burning fuel? Thought it was inefficient

level 1
