Halos coming in in 2018. I understand the need for safety but the cars are just ugly these days.

{Ed001's Note - horrible idea. Why even bother with that? F1 used to be about speed and danger, that is what makes the glamour and excitement attached to the sport. If you want to be safe, don't drive fast, it really is that simple.}

Couldn't have said it better myself. It's meant to be dangerous, that's the appeal.

{Ed001's Note - it is like extreme sports, they are exciting because of the risk attached. They are sanitising it so much it may as well be radio controlled cars running round the track. Though the drivers would have more control over the car then!}

It's meant to be precise, and technical, and pushing things to the limits. Doesn't mean anything about taking enjoyment out of an event that allows the possible deaths of other human beings.

I'm fine with the Halo if it could potentially save a single life. Now, the engine sound and lack of passing chances are things that can be fixed, and should be. .there's still tons of danger to drivers even without the halo, but to place a person's life in greater risk bc of a small aesthetic dislike isn't something I'd want. WIsh there was a better solution at the moment, but clearly there isn't, hopefully they continue working on finding better answers. Just my opinion, you are all entitled to yours. Currently enjoying Japan. .what a track.

{Ed001's Note - that isn't the point. The point is Halo is a crap idea, it looks rubbish and does not really protect them properly as well as blocking part of their view. It should either be open or closed cockpit, not this half measure that achieves nothing bar making the cars uglier.}

What I am trying to say is, you don't change motorbikes because they are dangerous, it is part of the sport. You know it is a risk when you get on one. The same thing applies with open cockpit open wheel racing. If you don't want to take the risk go into saloon cars.
