or freely translated:A statement said the group debated "a number of sporting measures aimed at improving the show". It did not reveal what they were but said "specific studies will be carried out to assess" them.
or worse:We already know this idea is aweful and has no support, but some guy has made it his personal mission, sorry about that. We'll make it up to you by thinking up something really cool. Really, it's going to be fantastic and huge.
We honourable delegates of the FIA deem your opinion, world, null and void. The institution has spoken. To offset any resistance, we have thrown a bone.
Halo would not of saved Bianchi. The deceleration would still have been pretty much the same as with the roll hoop.Shrieker wrote: ↑Thu Jul 20, 2017 6:45 amWe got used to those horrendous noses. We’ll get used to this. And i bet at least some teams will find a way to make it blend in with the car/livery and look good For example, this doesn't look bad me thinks.
The bad thing tho is, it will maybe prevent a Bianchi, but most likely won’t prevent a Massa. And then what...
Also: This Halo device isn't a part of the 'triangle' when the car rolls. I don't think they're designing the car around it, the same way it's designed around the roll hoop and the (top side of the) tub. What happens when the car rolls ? IMHO it's not a far fetched scenario that the Halo might get pushed into the cockpit towards the driver's head/chest. That would not be good, and can not be ruled out convincingly.
Untill I see it on the cars next year I would not consider this as granted, rules have been changed overnight before in F1Sieper wrote: ↑Thu Jul 20, 2017 9:32 amSo now that it is not open formula racing anymore how should we call it H1? just 1? but maybe Force One will have claimed that name.
I think it is a dreadful solution. It looks so incredibly ugly and out of place and prevents us from seeing the drivers. I am really saddened to read it has been pushed through now. This will mean it will stay forever, no way back. Just like Brexit .
