My specs :27" HP Z1 All-in-one 2TB SSD, 980M, 32GB Mem. IntelR XenonR CPU E3 1245 V2 @3.40Ghz Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

I am having the same issues. The video runs smooth but sound and voices sped up, cracked and barely hear anything. I have had F1 2013,14 and zero issues. As soon as i start F1 2016, the sound runs cracked, plays like its on fast forward.  Thanks

Sorry for the thread necro'ing but i think i have relevant information:

I was having what sounds like the same exact issue and i resolved it with the same exact steps given in the OP. But it was in a completely different game! I had this issue with Tom Clancy's The Division.

My Hardware:
CPU: Intel Core i7 3820
GPU: Nvidia GTX 970
Motherboard: GA-X79-UD3
Soundcard: None, i use the onboard sound of the motherboard (but it did come with "Dobly Home Theater V4" stuff and i have that installed)
Headphone: Sennheiser HD 419 (i think)
RAM: DDR3 - 32GB (4x 8GB) / Corsair Vengeance Pro (CMY32GX3M4A2400C11R)
OS: Windows 7 SP1 (Ultimate 64-bit)

Hopefully this helps others who have the same kind of issue. I arrived at this thread by Google and hopefully my post will help others too.
