    #F1 News: Sparks can 'dazzle' drivers - Sainz

    Apr.24 (GMM) Not everyone loves F1's new sparks.

    Last year, also to beef up the safety of the cars, F1 decided to return to its spark-laden past by adding titanium to the skid blocks in 2015.

    So far, the result has been spectacular -- particularly under the night skies and floodlights in Bahrain.

    "Loving the sparks from the cars," Jenson Button, who had to simply watch the race from the paddock after his McLaren-Honda was sidelined, 'tweeted'.

    And on its official website, the energy drink company Red Bull published a spectacular montage of 'spark'-themed photographs from Bahrain, remarking: "Welcome back sparks, welcome back."

    F1 rookie Carlos Sainz, however, said he has mixed feelings at best.

    "It looks good on TV," the Spaniard is quoted by Marca newspaper, "but for us (drivers) it can be unpleasant, dazzling us as the sparks hit the visor."
