F1 offseason been too long for you to handle? We've got just the thing.

First thing's first: You'll need a set of headphones. Once you're sorted there, keep on reading. Engine audio whiz 19Bozzy22 spent last week at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for week one of F1 testing. Being an engine audio whiz comes with some responsibility if you're attending race events, and the Youtuber has very honourably put together this 23-minute compilation of the sounds of the 2018 cars. 

The edit was recorded in 3D binaural audio, meaning you'll feel like you're actually there provided you're watching with a set of headphones (or on a surround sound system, for that matter). 

Week two of testing kicks off on Tuesday, with the season proper getting underway in just under three weeks time in Melbourne.
