MOTORSPORT /// F1 /// F1 FRIDAY /// MASSA CAPTURES THE SOUND OF 2014 /// 21.2.2014…

2014 is the year of the downsized Formula 1 engine.  Gone is that distinctive bee swarm sound of a grid of V8s.  In its place, less powerful (quieter) V6s.  So, what do the new cars sound like?  Well, lucky for you, Felipe Massa (BRA) captured a tiny taste of the new soundtrack, courtesy of his (just as new to him) teammate at Williams, Valtteri Bottas (FIN).

Unfortunately, because the video was Instagrammed, we cannot embed it.  Fortunately, clicking the still will take you straight to the video and right to Massa’s Instagram funland (fun fact: if you have not noticed, our policy is to link all of our photos to their source; so click away!).  So, do.  And, downsized engine or not, this is F1, people.  Turn it up to 11!
