I disagree, it looks nice, even if the screen is bigger than I imagined. That said I hardly notice the Halo anymore. Iíve blended it in with the rest of the car and it doesnít look unusual anymore

I think it looks pretty good. Need to read more about it from a technical perspective, but it looks potentially better than the halo.

Probably far more disruptive to the airflow around the car than the HALO.
I wonder how much it distorts the drivers vision?

Really, really like the wings, probably the oval package, but F1 would do well to adopt the spec, should improve the racing no end.

Smaller than those used on prototype racers I would assume. Not an issue for them, so unlikely to be an issue for Indycars.

The thing to remember is that this is a spec part to an already spec series.
That in itself should allow for a more aesthetically pleasing integration.

Doesn't mean I like it though....

I think the Indycar solution works well. It certainly fits in with the image of the series, of fast almost bullet speed cars. It doesnít make that much of difference in looks to me

It's an enclosed halo. The halo is still there, but mostly hidden by the screen bit. I think it looks good. It would be a big improvement to F1, and could be either a spec part or simply something defined by rules (so that the teams could spend millions on squeezing out a 0.0000001% advantage and then all copy each other when they see which is best).

Itís a windscreen with a halo in the middle of it. I agree, it goes well with this type of car. Being a spec series, they should have no trouble finding a supplier

The HALO is a spec item in F1, so no different.

In F1 the Halo is spec, but each is bolted onto a unique contractors chassis resulting in flicks and fairings to direct airflow.

The Indy car is totally spec so there will be no individuality to the cars.

To say no individuality is inaccurate. There are open parts of the car that are NOT spec and are very much so the focus of development by the top teams. The halo/screen WILL be a spec part produced and provided to the teams and reported by the Indy media after announcing the part. Who and when that will be provided is being worked out as we speak.
