The riveted on bit of trim along the rear of the halo rim looks very rough and ready. Is this a proof-of-concept item?

The view over the driver's shoulder was quite enlightening. The view through the screen seemed pretty good.

The helmet cam position is rubbish! :lol:

Don't think it's riveted, I think it's a cover for where a camera could/will go to look back on the driver. For some reason they're back to chin cam for a lovely view of the steering wheel, perhaps their old helmet cam was too high and just shows the hoop of the screen. They need the Formula E in-visor cam though the quality of that is a bit poor.

I hope for McLaren and Alonso that Mercedes got a heads up on this news else there will be some awkward meetings in Barcelona...

Marshall Pruett reports on the added pitstop workload this year caused by Indycar's aeroscreen. It's expected that the first two to three crewmembers over the wall will start vomiting uncontrollably at the sight of the aeroscreen, leaving the remaining crewmembers to complete all the work. That's not strictly what Marshall says, but seems a reasonable assumption.

Interesting... my daughter has been in the St Pete area all week. Except for the media hysteria it's been business as usual. But the further we can get ahead of the outbreak which is brewing the better.
