Visor cam: Gasly and Toro Rosso at Monaco


Toro Rosso has released a video in conjunction with Formula 1 showing a lap of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit though Pierre Gasly’s visor.

Earlier this week the team published the first part of a video showcasing a day in the life of an F1 driver, with Gasly wearing a chest camera for Wednesday’s media day preparations and Thursday morning ahead of FP1 in Monte Carlo.

Part one ended with Gasly climbing into his car in the garage and starting to pull out into the pit lane at the start of the first practice session, and now the second part has been released by F1 itself showing the driver’s view of a lap around the iconic street circuit.

The whole of Gasly’s installation lap is shown in the video, which also shows the minimal impact the Halo cockpit protection device has on the driver’s vision.

While the two-part video was produced by Toro Rosso, F1 is understood to be analyzing future camera angles to improve its broadcast output after certain onboard positions were impacted by the introduction of the Halo this year.
