Grinning uncontrollably, ears are bleeding.

Didn’t get tix to the Grand Prix this weekend, but decided we wanted to hear what these F1 cars sound like. Fought our way through the jams to Marina Square and had a wander. When the first cars came out for 2nd practice at 2130hrs the iced lemon tea nearly came out through my nose…

HOT DAMN they’re loud! Even when you cover your ears the sounds resonate through your chest. The straights are much louder than the corners, and the Merc engines are significantly noisier.

Contemplating getting walkabouts next year….
