Niki Lauda speaks up about F1 engine noise

I would not argue with him, not only because he is a genius of auto racing, but also because he is a tough son of a *****.

If people don't like the new noise, take the earplugs out

Most watch F1 on a monitor. The sound (much like a sick bull frog) might actually be improved by putting ear plugs in.

Sorry for the bad link! I didn't realize it had the FB redirection in there. I fixed the link in the original message. Try it now, please.
