That's me done for the season, I have no interest in watching these abortions racing; safe they may be, quick they may be but the F1 cars of today are Frankensteins.

i agree with the sentiments behind both of these posts. it is hideous, but on the other hand the halo is not the hill my love for f1 will die on. the sport is more than a crappy bit of problem solving by the fia, but it's understandable that for a lot of people, it's the final straw in a bunch of really dodgy recent technical decisions.

it is possible to continue to value the sport despite a hideous bit of scaffolding.

I've watched a few figureskating events where people have smashed their heads into the ice and suffered injuries. If you were to apply the same thought process to that sport as you would F1, they should all be wearing crash helmets and have neck support devices whilst parading around... Perhaps they just "accept the risk?"

There is so much junk protruding off every available surface on an F1 car that it is amazing that anybody even notices the HALO.

P.S. The teams all (most) run different coloured camera pods on the cars so that you can identify the drivers.
Ferrari Kimi viz. green camera Seb red.
RBR Max viz. green camera pod, Ricc blue.

The protuberances were much worse 10 years ago. Check out this Sauber F1.08. Actually, I don't think the Halo would look too out of place.

came across a link for the nose cone cam from Kimi's car at the start.

https://streamable.com/dwi1d

with the Halo partially blocking the onboards and the difficulty in repositioning the camera higher and/or building a camera into the halo itself i hope they go for more of these shots during the broadcasts.

not a perfect solution but a good compromise imo.

I donít think that this is comparable. Risk is not a constant there are different degrees of risk based on likelihood and potential severity.

So, the bigger the risk, the less safety measures should be taken.
And the smaller the risk, the more... What?

I like my wife's description that the halos look like zimmer frames or at the opposite end of the scale, pram handles.

Personally, they remind me of those things you use to do sit-ups at the gym.
