Never understood that attitude. As long as the racing is good, what does the look or sound of the cars matter? After all, it should all be about the racing. That's the whole reason behind getting cars on a track. If you want loud noises and 'cool' looking cars, you can see that on Friday night on most high streets.

I've watched both FE races and the racing has been pretty good (and that's not always true of single seaters so they're doing something right). The sound is a big problem - it's not just that they're quiet compared to what we're used to - it's that the noise is actually irritating after a while.

I don't mind the noise - I find their presentation annoying, because they're clearly trying to make up for the lack of noise by throwing in stupid sound effects. Ridiculous noises when lights go out, and wooshing yellow blocks over the screen when they go to safety car. Stop it. Stop trying to hide the sound. It just makes it worse.

To be honest, I'm much more of a sportscar fan than single seaters, but of the 3 single seaters I watch, I enjoy Formula E the most. Especially with the new car.

The sound of the graphics is a common annoyance of the coverage of many sports. Maybe it is more noticeable here?

I turn of beeping when you do something on all electronics if I can (especially in car stuff). It’s just not needed. If it doesn’t have a real sound don’t bother.
