This will Surely protect the pilot ..Because of the whole body it is the head that is the most vulnerable
Get well soon Maria , My thoughts are with you and your family
I still stand by my statement that canopies will turn a car into a bbq for one unlucky driver. When you look at the driving position of an F1 car you notice that for something to hit the driver it has to be in a downwards motion, ie falling. anything moving in a horizontal or rising will either be intercepted or not be able to hit at all. This isnt like the 70s with the drivers sitting in the tall part of the car with a windshiled barely covering their chests. Freak things happen all the time. Look at LMP1 cars with their big fins and big holes in the hopes of stopping cars from taking off in crashes.
