If you include HUD in the helmet, you need to have electronics in the helmet as well. Not sure it is a good idea to plug solid objects and add weight into the crash protection.

Modern electronic components weigh very little. A Samsung S10 smart phone weighs 157g. HUD, as well as HMD (Helmet Mounted Display), have been used with military aircraft for many years and some military aircraft, notably jet fighters, can pull very high G forces and this will have been taken into account, when designing the helmet.

If the Halo didn't prove itself last year at Spa with LeClerc, then it surely proved itself in F3 with Alex Peroni. Luck still plays a part though as if he had landed such that a fence post was in the way, the halo would not have protected him.

I therefore believe that closed cockpits are inevitable.

I love the open cockpit nature of F1 and other open-wheeler series. I thought the Halo would detract from the overall aesthetics of the cars yet accepted that it is needed from a safety point of view. I don't even register them now except when onboard and even then it's not a nuisance, just another part of the car.

I expect it to be much the same with a closed cockpit as long as it provides a clear view of the driver at work from outside the car.

That would be another 6.2 kg hanging off your neck in a 40G impact, and it could be a lot higher! Ouchy!

There is a video on youtube showing Giuliano Alesi's detached rear wing striking the the HALOS of both Jordan King and Sean Galael in the F2 race at Monza. Without question it saved both from being struck in the face by large sections of Alesi's rear wing.

Can also see substantial damage to the HALO on Galael's car following the impact.

I think the HALO has without doubt saved a fair few lives since its adoption, pity it wasn't put in place ten years earlier!

That can happen wings coming off, so it's a good thing the halo is there. I would hate for them to have it strike in the face at high speed. It does serve a purpose the halo. I

It's something we have got used to. Of course we can't change the past, but it'll keep racing safer now
