Ecclestone admits F1 cars don't sound that bad in person
Interviewed by Sky Sports' Ted Kravitz, Bernie Ecclestone admitted the 2014 F1 cars sound much better in person
"I think it's a little louder than we thought so if we can just get it up a little bit more than that....I wish I could get it up, but anyway....then it will be all right". (you can watch the complete clip HERE)
Gerontological considerations aside, a lot of this noise issue on TV can be addressed by different microphone placement and EQ. The clip below has just a simple iMovie treble boost and it sounds much better, proper work by professionals would produce even better results without the need for artificial noisemakers.
