Question is, do we really need to go too much further? A bit of cooling could help, if its mandated by the FIA. At the moment, theres no need for it, so well just have to wait. Have to say the halo does its job, even if it took some getting used to

If its job is deflecting large pieces of debris, other cars, or indeed keeping tyre walls off the driver. then yes.

If it's job is to prevent all objects then there is still a lot of open space for carbon fibre, gravel stones, smaller mechanical bits, etc to get through. So in that context it's not fully doing it's job.

Aw c'mon, it's clearly not designed for the latter set. There's two immense holes in it.

I said 'clearly not'... there's no way it could be. Is there? Nobody would have that level of hubris, surely?

The FIA introduced it to deflect debris, the debris of choice by the FIA was a tyre and wheel assembly.

Had it been a front wind assembly or a selection of bargeboard components would the Halo have been considered good enough?

Hence my observation that it does offer protection against large debris, but not smaller stuff.

Not sure if it's been mentioned before, but just to chip in with some numbers from NASCAR it's not uncommon to see temps upwards 130-140 F/50-60 C inside the cars during hot days.

In some more extreme cases they've even seen temps around 160 F/71 C, which is effin' crazy.

Nascar does however have all the hot bits on the front of the car and the spends the time running into and above some very hot air. The F1 dynamic is considerably more friendly from a heat point of view.

Yep, definitely. I was more thinking from a driver point of view and the temps they sometimes need to endure

The Nascar driver is sitting directly in the blow torch flame though, and the F1 driver has that all exiting behind him, so the heating effect is much less in a rear engine car.

I've had the privilege to stick my head into a few modern touring cars in the last few years just after they have been out doing a race and the heat inside the car just blew me away.

I bet they would be pretty hot after the race, especially with all the electric technology they have these days, although there is some cooling to the drivers
