    I'm going to struggle to watch F1 this year without vomiting blood.
    Adverts on the halo. Get to ****.

    F1 could add digital display to Halo device

    The whole car is an advert. I don't see why running ads on the halo makes it worse.

    Rather than adverts can we not let the teams have the ability to just remotely programme it with insults to other drivers?

    RasputinLives - Or maybe "All the time you have to leave the space" and other such...

    Of course the sensible thing to do would be to have the drivers name on it in massive big letters so everyone know who's who. F1 is rarely sensible though.

    This pic from BBC F1 is a classic for me. It perfectly shows how awful the halo looks. I sincerely hope that there's a problem with one quite soon - a delay getting out of a car that proves dangerous, or perhaps some material will get caught in one and wreck the driver's view. I doubt there'll be an occasion where they help anyone. They have to go.

    That's a good point about debris catching on them, was it azerbaijan where they were having issues with plastic bags getting where they sohouldn't?

    Sadly not. Bianci's death was caused by his brain striking the inside of the skull causing massive trauma. The sudden deceleration is what killed Bianchi. The Halo would have done nothing to prevent that.

    Sadly may be.
    "Then there is the crash itself. Bianchi hit a recovery vehicle, which has large wheels and a high ground clearance that will allow an F1 car to go in underneath it. Much as the safety aspects of modern cars have improved, they are designed to cope with impacts on other cars or barriers, not a tractor."
    Jules Bianchi crash sends F1 into another period of self-examination | Giles Richards

    May be if car didn't go in underneath a tractor the car was able to compensate a greater force of impact
    and a smaller impulse could be to transmit to the body and head of the driver
