Next-gen F1 engines must be louder says Horner

The next generation of Formula 1 cars should be louder, according to Red Bull team boss Christian Horner. “Sustainability is obviously something we need to keep, but Formula 1 has to entertain, and that means the engine has to sound good,” Horner insisted. Horner continued: “I hope we can all find a way to create great engines for 2025. Current Mercedes chief Toto Wolff, however, warns that Formula 1 has higher priorities than engine sound. “We cannot be gas guzzlers with screaming engines when everyone expects us to be electric,” he insisted. “The new engines will continue to have a combustion element – we are sticking with the V6 concept – but the electrical components will be significantly enhanced.”.
