Greenlantern101 that I woke up my little boy!

F1 is a show, the introduction of the device is a show, to show people that something is being done to increase the drivers safety; a scapegoat to avoid further critisism in case of another accident such as Bianchis. However, it is already a piece that belongs in a museum not on an F1 car.
I think Brundle hit the nail on the head during one of his interviews at the British GP. If there were an accident where a driver was hit in the head and injured or killed and the FIA had tested and proven that there was something available which could have prevented his then a) the insurance wouldn't pay out b) premiums would sky rocket or no insurer would offer cover until it was introduced and c) the FIA would most likely be sued by the family of the driver for many millions which would put the whole of motor sport in jeopardy. It's a no win situation for them.
It's a waste.
Given how litigious society is nowadays the lawyers would have a field day suing anyone involved in F1 with a heart beat if someone were to be injured "when it could have been prevented".
So what happens if someone is injured or killed because of the halo?
No idea what you are talking about.
Steve Martin is a down and out who invents the Opti-Grab which is a handle and nose brake to fit to glasses. This investment makes him a fortune until he is successfully sued by a man who claims that the device fitted to his glasses have made him boss eyed. There are then several more lawsuits all of which end up with Martin becoming bankrupt and going back to his life as a street bum and drifter before the invention.
What chance the drivers all end up boss eyed after using "The Halo"? Even the name is shite isn't it?
As for the Halo, I hate it but it's happening so we better get used to it.
I await the first driver to be trapped in an upturned car.
You have my deepest sympathy. I'll never forget the "interview" Paul Kaye AKA Dennis Pennis did with Martin on the red carpet at one of his film openings. Here it is:
Am I going a bit off topic?
