    Perhaps the time to buy a property near a race track will be in 50 years when all the cars will be electric?

    Only realised that Sky showed the race live on Sky1 & Sky1HD this morning, channels I get on my Virgin package with subscribing to Sky Sports. I’ve no idea if it was a one-off or not but I’ve set up a series link to it now in case they show the rest of the races.

    If anyone else knows anything about it, let me know.

    You realise this is an F1 thread?

    I am sure there are others you can whine on about the noise of other people enjoying themselves!

    Just saying. Think about it. Enjoying oneself while others can’t have any rest.
    Seriously.

    Can't quite see what you are getting here chartz.

    Nothing. Enjoying F1 is just a selfish thing.
    You can enjoy yourself but that shouldn’t annoy others in any way.
    Health is at stake here. Just read the WHO report if you can be bothered.
    Race tracks are a useless nuisance.
    I rest my case.

    What about the people who live near motorways, airports, on flightpaths, live in the middle of cities or towns where the weekends are full of people out until the early morning, usually drunk and very loud, or live near university accommodation where students come and go at all hours of the day or night and not forgetting people who live near to a road where the boy/girl racers drive up and down all evening.

    Everyone usually has something that is not great in their lives, as has been said this thread is about F1, not about noise.

    I happen to live half a mile from a motorway and a railway track. No problem here.
    You’ll never get it, I give up. The judge did, however (our solicitor is very competent and the track’s councilor has no arguments to oppose ours).
    People who buy properties next to an existing track shouldn’t complain, that’s another matter entirely.

    Back to hi-fi, this we agree on :)

    This seems a bit like posting about the evils of alcohol on a beer appreciation thread. It would be equally badly received.

    It's called Trolling.

    Literally, no one cares...and this isn't a hifi thread, nor is it a first world problem thread.

    If it bothers you enough, just move. If it dosen't, accept that other people live in the world also and as the globe becomes more and more populated, we have to be more and more tolerant of others.

    the new circuit must have needed planning permission. planning is a democratic process - if you do not like the outcome you need to try and change that process. invest the time and money required to ensure the correct legislative procedure has been followed, lobby your mp or become one.

    It built on no agreement, planning or permission. We got scr...

    All that you say and advised was done, our MP is a fine person by the way - a woman - and we won our trial. Noise expertise is also on our side.
    Only, the judgment isn’t applied. What a world.
    Let’s move on to something else shall we?

    I think @chartz needs to move next to a real circuit and go back in time 15 years :)

    No. I want to whine about the traffic outside my house that makes sitting outside noisy. How dare people exist.

    They have shown the first 3 live on Sky one but, I suspect that they will stop soon as these ones are on at sparrow fart in the mornings. Once the races get to Europe they may stop hoping that you are addicted.

    Fat chance of that! I've made do with the highlights so far. If I can avoid the result beforehand then great but if not, it's no big deal anymore these days.

    Easy to forget how awesome they used to sound!

    Please bring back N.A. non-hybrid engines!

    Oh and more durable tyres too please.

    I quite like the tyres this season. At least they’re easier to get my head round, and they go off gradually.

    Still too much tyre management going on for my liking. I'd like to see the drivers be able to race harder for longer, without having to worry quote as much about tyre degradation.

    Much better than recent years though.
