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!
Felipe Baby!

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).

The American version of the halo has this latest design, manufacture development
With generative design and additive manufacuring they have achieved about a 32% weight reduction

So they will reduce weight by material and process. No new design...

I'm ready for Halo v2. They said there would be development around the Halo after it's introduction.

A generative designed, 3d printed aero-structural component that lowers weight and improves strength should be a focus of F1.

But hadn't F1 made the point that the exact same halo could be mounted into F2 and F3 cars?
What you suggest would make the exact same halo now present in an F2 car appear like a cheap, less safe option.
What you suggest would make F1 cars safer and faster, and increase visivility toards and from the cockpit.
... nah, we'll take the image value instead.

By the way, are there any reports of a halo deforming too much, or cracking, or having any other type of fault? I get the impression that the think is now several times stronger than it needs to be, which is a good thing, but maybe removes any incentive to redesign it. this has been accepted, proven in battle... if it ain't broke...
I would like to see a paleontologist.

From reading the article, the American version which is screen plus halo the weight could be reduced by 7 kilograms. Equal to a fair few layers of paint
One of the methods is honeycombing the solids.
Pankl and PPG are the companies involved.
It is another example of new manufacturing as opposed to dictums like "the crankshaft must be made from iron", something that was uttered in the 12th century

I think they made the point that it would evolve from the initial design. Also, if mounting points are the same, new Halo version could be backwards compatible. Just thinner/lighter/stronger.
