We’ve not seen it on monitor for a 12 months and the FIA has spent the previous few months growing ‘The Protect’ instead however the governing physique has now confirmed the ‘Halo’ shall be getting an introduction for the 2018 F1 season.
The cockpit safety machine did not draw a very constructive response from followers when it was fitted to numerous automobiles throughout testing and FP1 periods in 2016, whereas there was a decidedly combined response from drivers too.
Certainly, whereas the likes of Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo, Sebastian Vettel and (finally) Lewis Hamilton spoke out in favour of the machine, the likes of Romain Grosjean, Kevin Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer are vehemently in opposition to it.
For a lot of, information of the Halo’s resurrection – albeit with promised re-designs – will come as a shock given its absence from the monitor in additional than 9 months now and truth groups are already starting to design their 2018 machines, however the FIA stays dedicated to introducing a type of cockpit safety.
However we wish to know what you – the followers – consider the Halo’s prospect?
Do you agree there needs to be a type of head safety?
Do you suppose open-wheel racing ought to stay as it’s?
Are you a fan of the Halo… or is the Protect a greater various?
