I was gonna say Indy > F1 , reasoning? The cars arent stuck to the ground with insane amounts of aero and you can really see the drivers struggling for grip.

Formula E has 1 perk since quiet means city circuits .
What do you mean, no sounds? You don't like hearing *weeeeeeeeee* and *wunwunwunwunnnnnnnn-eeeeeee*

I'd love to attend the Formula E race in Brooklyn - that's such a great location for a city race.

The Indy circuits are fun to watch. The ovals, not as much, imo.

Formula E sounds like my neighbor's battery operated string trimmer. Can't wrap my head around them.

I like all racing, but draw the line at those life size RC cars. ;-)

Sure, they don't have the thrill of engine sounds, but they're still cars with all the fun problems that come with chassis balance, etc.
And seriously, the quali system that Formula E uses is awesome. F1 should start using something like it to curb some of this anti-competition that comes with dominant teams.

After hearing V10 screaming in person...its hard for me to agree with this lmfao.

Also against your argument besides me loving the sounds...is the smells of the fuel.


Lets just all agree itd be really nice if spec miata racing out of nowhere got extremely popular in America and takes out Nascar.

I mean, I totally get it. I've scrutineered in the pit lane at 6h of Circuit of the Americas. The Porsche RSR LMGTE cars damn near split my head open; it was marvelous.
I just appreciate all forms of racing and for me it goes beyond what's actually propelling the vehicle.

Lets talk about this. Probably the greatest wheel to wheel battle ever.

One of my favorite tracks too.

Man, so intense. F1 hasn't been this good for a long time. The last time I truly had a fun time watching a race was Brazil 2016 when Verstappen was carved through a dozen or so positions in the rain.
