Formula 1: RedBull Racing Halo Concept
A few days ago, before the Australian Grand Prix, RedBull released a photo showing it’s ‘concept’ on the new halo design for the 2017 Formula 1 season.
With Fernando Alonso’s crash showing us that Formula 1 is still a dangerous sport, the FIA are continuously looking for different ways to make cars more secure in order to protect their drivers.
Looking at this new concept from RedBull – it’s basically a windscreen! I know, it’s just a concept but I’m not sure if this will actually do anything.
Everyone is happy and supportive of making the sport (and cars) safer for the drivers however a lot of people are questioning if this is the right move….
Will it be easy for the drivers to escape from their car in an emergency – if needed?
Will this actually protect the driver?
Will this take away the ‘danger’ and ‘excitement’ of the sport?
Is the halo concept a step too far?
Would have Alonso managed to escape as quickly as he did if the ‘halo design’ had been added to his McLaren from the 2016 season?
