I think with the halo, they should have used something which wasn't quite so bulky, i know they needed something strong, but a less bulky design would have looked a lot better and would still have been able to deflect any large objects.

New F1 theme music to be written by Hollywood composer

Formula 1 has commissioned leading Hollywood composer Brian Tyler to write new official theme music for the championship.

Tyler, who attended last year's United States Grand Prix at Austin, revealed the nature of his latest job on social media.

"What an honour to be chosen to compose the Formula 1 theme!" he wrote.

"This is a life long dream come true as I am a massive Formula 1 fan. Thank you F1! Here we go!"

The Emmy-nominated Tyler has worked on three of the top 10 grossing movies of all time.

His CV includes five episodes of the Fast and The Furious franchise, the Expendables series, The Mummy, Rambo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as Marvel films Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

He also has extensive experience in TV themes, having written the introductory music for ESPN's NFL coverage.

It is understood that Tyler, who is currently working in London's AIR Studios, was commissioned by F1's new TV chief David Hill, and that his music will feature on the new F1 streaming service that was announced this week.

"Within the context of looking at ways to bring fans closer to Formula 1, we are exploring all avenues to refresh the look and feel of the show," an F1 spokesperson told Autosport.

"Music is a key component of the emotion of sport and we are engaging with top international talent in order to develop a new signature tune for F1.

"This is a process in development and we will make a formal announcement at the right time."

It is not yet clear whether it will also have wider usage, for example on the world feed used by all broadcasters, over circuit public address on race weekends, or in gaming - an area in which Tyler is also a specialist.

They should use the Halo music or better yet the amazing Interstellar music.

0:46-1:18 played at 1.5 speed sounds like a sick 2005 McLaren trying to get to the rev limited down the back straight at Monza :slol:

As long as it doesn't start getting played half way through a slightly boring race then it should be alright, guess having a piece purposely written for an F1 theme has the scope to be pretty decent.

Hey its only testing, right? right?

Anyway they've had power unit related issues today, one being the battery pack rendering their initial 4 laps void (data was lost) and a hydraulic leak in the afternoon. They've also had to open up extra cooling to the rear of the engine cover near the exhaust making it seem like they've been a little ambitious with their packaging (although I guess that can easily be solved by the time they get down under) as it was starting to turn that lovely shade of orange a shade of brown..... Hopefully they'll have a solid day tomorrow.

Honda power unit ran faultlessly once again though! A suspension or brake issue curtailed their afternoon.

Seb had a storming day though regards the lap count, 171 laps while both Mercedes drivers completed 177.

Comedic value is good though?

Anyway Vettel has just posted a rather quick lap on the hypersoft tyres, a 1:17.182, trying not to get carried away here......

It's still not the worst stop i've seen, i remember one incident when Eddie Irvine came into the pits and the mechanics were just stood round having a committee meeting during the middle of a grand prix.
