This still feels like a knee-jerk reaction to Bianchi's death. The sport is dangerous, the drivers know that and I'm pretty sure they accept it every time they get in the car otherwise they would be sitting at home watching on TV like the rest of us.

9 out of 10 teams said no to it, and they pushed it through anyway? Good work FIA =D>
Aha! First one!
I'm picking out the naysayers in the thread. 8)
I hope i wasnt one of them though... :oops:
Happy to say I have happily been proven wrong and will use this as proof that my armchair analysis is of no value to the sport!

Ive always wondered why the central section isn't taken away for two smaller less obtrusive (but still structurally strong enough) pillars don't come down and join on as part of the wing mirrors mounts?

If it was like this, i think it would get a nod form me as it would be much better looking for me, however still grotesque in the terms of the look of a F1 car.
I was wrong, I no longer notice the Halo. And now know that it's a needed bit of kit. On the weekend that the Aresnal v Wolves game had much criticism about a clash of heads, its great that F1 can say that we saved a life because of this piece of gear. Its not perfect, its pretty near close to it however.

I was a naysayer...and still think it quite the eyesore (however I originally stated it looked a "proper abortion"...so it must be growing on me). However, F1 is a dangerous endeavor, and it is quite possible in the future that the HALO's presence will prove detrimental. Now, the score is HALO 1 to zero...and think the odds are in favor of it saving more than the converse.

Interestingly enough, I was also quite the Gros detractor. In those few minutes watching live...awaiting news...I became quite ill due to the possible foreboding outcome. I fear watching such a fatal incident live would have permanently soured me. Thus, my hated HALO that saved Gros has allowed me to continue enjoying my favorite sport. Life is indeed strange (and 2020 sucks).
