Individual sources for this event

Autosport 27 May 1971 pp8-17 (by Patrick McNally). Motoring News 27 May 1971 pp12-15 (by 'MGD' Mike Doodson). Autocourse 1971-72 pp70-77 (by David Phipps). Motor Sport July 1971 pp690-692 and 'Notes on the cars at Monaco' pp692-693 (by 'DSJ' Denis Jenkinson). The Motor Racing Year No 3 (by Anthony Pritchard) pp48-56. Jenks in Motor Sport was still providing chassis numbers on the Practice Times list, allowing all T cars to be easily identified. MN also gave chassis numbers on a Practice Times table.

The entry was largely as in Spain: two cars from each of Lotus, Brabham, McLaren, Tyrrell, Matra and Surtees; three cars from Ferrari, BRM and March; and a single car from Williams. Added to that was another privately-run March 711 from Gene Mason Racing for Skip Barber to bring the total to 23. However, numbers 23, 25 and 26 were blank on the entry list, so others had been expected. The T cars mentioned by Autosport and Motor Sport were a Ferrari 312B for Ickx but used by Andretti, Tyrrell 001 for Stewart, a BRM P153 for Rodriguez, and a Matra MS120B for Amon. Motor Sport also mentioned the "bare bones of another M14A" in the McLaren transporter and said 29 cars were present, even though that only adds up to 27. Pritchard also spotted the spare M14A, and identified it as M14A/1, as in Spain. Motoring News mentioned that a Surtees TS7 was also present, which gives 28. Autosport, Motor Sport and Pritchard all mentioned that 711-01 had a new monocoque but Jenks had not at this stage developed "Jenks notation" so still called it 711/1. MN created confusion by identifying Ganley's BRM as 153-03, but everyone else, notably Anthony Pritchard, was clear which car it was.
