Couple of quickie updates:


Kyle Kaiser running COTA only (so far) for Juncos - explains his presence at the test.


https://www.thecheckeredflag.co.uk/2...-indycar-race/


Also, commentators on the test yesterday indicated Helio's only running the 500 (again, so far - seems likely he might run the Indy GP but AFAIK that has not (yet) been stated for 2019).

Re Robert Wickens, another major step (sic) for him today.

Very Happy for him. And his fiance.

I thought the halo looked suspect, and feel the same way about this.

I doubt very much, whether this AFP device would have saved Justin Wilson, or prevented the injury Felipe Massa sustained.

We'll never know, but IIRC the chunk of debris that hit JW came down from above and wouldn't have been deflected by this device. The piece that hit Massa came up from the track at a lower trajectory, so *might* have bounced off this thing, I guess.


I'm willing to give IndyCar the benefit of the doubt here though. No way they'd randomly install this thing without having done a lot of testing first, so presumably it will deflect certain types of debris under certain circumstances, which is better than nothing.

I'm looking forward to hearing how it affects drivers heads with air resistance around the big ovals. I don't think it will be minimal.
