Force India and Toro Rosso to try Halo at Spa

NEWS STORY
25/08/2016

Following the news that Nico Rosberg is set to try the device on his Mercedes in the opening practice session, it is understood that countryman Nico Hulkenberg will have the device on his Force India as will one of the Toro Rosso drivers.

Last month it was announced that the introduction of the device in 2017 had been scrapped even though, just a week earlier, the FIA had gone out of its way to convince the drivers that it was the way to go, a graphic presentation having convinced several former high-profile sceptics.

Though an exact agenda for its introduction has not been announced, the FIA made it clear that it wanted to see all the team and drivers trial the device over the coming months, thus far only Ferrari and Red Bull have run it.

"Seems rather ludicrous that they are still playing with this concept of a bar in the driver's sight line and thinking that this will stop debris hitting them in the head. Wouldn't have worked for Helnut Marko, but it might stop larger objects .... occasionally.
Suggestion to try .... stick a vertical strip of 15 or 20 mm masking tape in your sight line on your car windshield, top to bottom, and see how it affects your vision.
You can get used to it, no doubt, but sight beyond the tape and see how big an object can be hidden behind it at a distance of say 50m. If there is something tracking laterally at the same rate as the "blind spot" is progressing, you will likely hit it,and it could be pretty big.
In many jurisdictions, such a blockage of a driver's vision will get you a citation.
Some may not like windscreens, but it would solve the Helmet Tear-Off issue. Just that now they would be as large as the windscreen and only get removed in the pits."
