PaddockTalk EXCLUSIVE: FOM To 'Auto-Tune' Formula One F1 Engine Noise On World TV Feed

By PaddockTalk.com Staff Writers

Desperate times call for desperate measures, at least on TV. PaddockTalk has learned that FOM (Formula One Management) Group which produces the world TV feed for each Formula One F1 race - except Monaco - will call upon technology to help "fix" the engine noise problem that have fans furious.

Beginning with the 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix, FOM will use a slick new version of the Auto-Tune sound technology to adjust the live engine noise - a new low-pitched 1.6 V6 turbo engine - with a mix of sound from the 2013 v8 higher-revving engines. The goal is to bring back TV viewers put off by the new engine noise.

FOM has apparently been testing different techniques to get the best combinations of sounds. They have even been looking at using the historically popular v10 engine sounds. The challenge for the producers is they are being asked to have a solution in place by Sunday's Grand Prix, so what you hear on Sunday may not be the final product. The company will continue to test different engine sound and pitch combinations with focus groups throughout the season.

Bernie Ecclestone was said to be pleased with the potential change, while technical staff discussed the possibilities. However, when asked what it would do for the trackside F1 fan, Ecclestone was quoted as saying, "Terrible to say this I suppose, but they (fans) just get in the way of a Grand Prix."

The official announcement could come as early as today - April 1st.
