One of the first things that drew me into Formula 1 racing was the amazing sound of the engines screaming at 18000+ rpm.  That sound fills my home during each grand prix weekend, undoubtedly annoying my neighbors.

If these sound bites aren’t reason enough to become a Formula 1 fan then check out the actual racing and I promise you will not be disappointed!
