Helium assist?

Helium assist?
I have a feeling I'm going to offend some people here with this, but this is a podcast forum and we should be interested in sound quality, so here goes nothing: Does anyone else agree with me that both Milka Duno and Felipe Massa sound like they've been sucking on the helium bottle before speaking in to a microphone?

Milka's a lovely girl, and she's a decent driver, but OMG I'd need noise-cancelling headphones before giving her house room.

And Felipe? Well, the 'doll' moniker covers his less-than-dulcet tones as well as his stature and physiognomy, eh?

Is it something they put in the water in South America?

Regards,
Mark

Big Grin

Actually, following the S American theme, Rubens can get pretty squeaky at times.

RE: Helium assist?
to be honest, I haven't watched the past few post-race press conferences to know, but I have a feeling Felipe's voice would absolutely annoy me.

on a side note, am I the only one who occasionally thinks that Marco Andretti's voice is deeper than his father's?

yes I know I've been gone a while, but that doesn't mean I didn't watch the races. especially Brazil.

Personally, I'm just hoping he's less of a jerk than his father.

Insert shameless plug here.

was it helium or "whippits"? as they are called here as in nitrous o, like maybe he took in the gas for whipped cream cannisters. that stuff will make you pass out (so I've heard)
(We at F1W @gpw.com in no way endorses the recreational use of any gasses)

I'm not sure what he took in. My neighbors told me it was helium, but if he did is another matter.

They generally don't talk to me sensibly since I managed to run over their dog 3 years ago and they still hold a grudge.

RE: Helium assist?
ahaha.

Yes it is. The dog was black, and it was running on the road...in the middle of the night. I like to take the corner into my road quick (in a racing line because I'm cool). Anyway I couldn't see it - but I was going rather quick.

I live in a rural area so nothings on the road at night, I often take my car for a spin ....pretending i'm DC!
