Granted, both clips were taken in different situations, with Caterham’s clip involving their first fire-up of the new Renault (pictured) and Mercedes’ clip involving a car running at speed.
Still, it seems we can all be more encouraged about what the new sound of Formula One will be.
Here’s Caterham fresh audio:
