Daniel Ricciardo has revealed his biggest frustration with F1 racing at present.
The 26-year-old wants a return to the old V8 engines that were once used in the sport, as opposed to the current V6 hybrid technology used in cars’ engines.
Speaking with Karen Tighe on ABC Grandstand on Saturday, Ricciardo said the sport was too “quiet”, making for a less interesting atmosphere at races. Returning to V8s would make cars louder and make races better spectacles for fans.
“I think it’s on all of our wish lists. When you go to an event and see it live, part of that noise and sound creates an atmosphere and how Formula One is now, it just lacks that a little bit,” said Ricciardo.
“People want something when they come to a live race, and that distinctive scream of an F1 car is just missing at the moment and we all want it back.
“It’ll happen one day soon hopefully and go back to its roots.”
