  1. Some great videos again, thanks @andae23

    I’m surprised that even 6 races in, FOM’s broadcast fails to capture what the cars sound like live, when compared to a bunch of amateur videos shot on hand held cams.

    1. Why would the fom want to capture a terrible sound? They sound boring on tv and in fan videos

  2. Whenever I see fan videos of the Monaco GP I always get two very strong feelings when I consider attending the race. The first is that, as a passionate fan of the sport, I would love to go to because nowhere else can you get so close to the cars as they thread their way through the historic streets. The second is that, should I go, the experience would be ruined by the hoards of posers, hangers on and nouveau riche chavs who seem to be the target market of the race. I live in the Middle East and I have already spent more than enough time with those sorts of people for my liking.

    Having read the articles posted in yesterday and today’s round-ups which seem to highlight the fact that the race may be losing some of its glamour, I get the sense that the second feeling is the one that will win out.

    1. Totally agree with you. As a fan, I would love to go to this race, but other than the race I feel like I would hate everything else about the weekend.

    2. Fairmont Hotel view video @ 0:50

      “It’s a little loud”

      Sigh. Best seats are reserved for the wealthy, and they still complain.
      Ted’s little pre-race snippet on SKY of where the general admission people go did look pretty good I must say.

  3. If one cannot appreciate the sound in the ‘Entering the Swimming Pool complex’-video, one never will..

    1. The sound from previous years seem dull by comparison. How can anyone not love the new sound, I don’t get.

      The old V8s were loud dentist drills, that gave you head aches, (or as my girlfriends mom once asked: “are those cows wailing in the background?”) however the new sound is a symphony from the dark side.

      1. If the choise really is between cowls wailing in the background or cars sounding like leaf blowers then I choose the cows.

        1. Im with you. Bring back the cows. Symphony from the dark side- what the hell? Is that sarcasm?

        Go to a race. They sound like strimmers.

  4. I guess Kimi has never been there before?
    At least he did not oversleep.

    1. Maybe Lotus didn’t have money for a Vespa?

  5. Cars sound Awesome on the start video
    I love that whistle of the turbo

  6. Those cars are quicker than I thought on the start

  7. the turbos sound like dentist drills. i much prefer the naturally aspirated engines. more enjoyable than being reminded of getting a root canal.

  8. Thanks for the article.
    Crowd sourced views are amazing!!
    A great perspective on what’s going on.

  9. Good stuff. :)

  10. In the video “Entering the Swimming Pool complex” all the cars sound awesome, except the car passing at 0:12, which sounds very different and muffled. I can’t make out if it’s a Mercedes, or perhaps a mclaren. Does anyone know?
