Mercedes Chief F1 Engine Development Officer Andy Cowell revealed that many mechanics and engineers had been introduced before the introduction of hybrid turbo V6 engines due to loud V 10 and V8 hearing aid aggregates.
System 1 entered 2014 years into the era of hybrid turbo engines, which at first did not attract much fanfare.
As revealed by Mercedes engineer Andy Cowell, the change is much more enjoyable for all Formula One staff.
“Because of those screaming V8 and V 10 engines, kids couldn't even get anywhere near the racetrack. No parent wants to do this to their child. Also, many people working in Formula 1 have suffered from severe hearing impairment due to loudness. I think that the current generation of engines is a welcome change because they are much quieter, but still produce enough noise. “
