Monaco Grand Prix Saturday Qualifying

Watched Qualifying from Le Grill restaurant on the 8th floor of L’Hotel de Paris.  Great view of the cars coming up Beau Rivage into Massenet as well as through Casino Square.  You could also see them off in the distance through the second part of the Swimming Pool and into La Rascasse…

Jules Bianchi’s Marussia goes poof on his first lap at the top of Beau Rivage:

La Rascasse and the whole Swimming Pool area is a heaving mass of humanity when the cars aren’t running. A gong show honestly…
