     Ferrari tested prototype HALO style cockpit protector this morning.

 

     The team explained it is a tubular carbon structure and Kimi Raikkonen tested his visibility with this device on this morning’s installation lap. He said it was ok, there was no obstruction on his view.

     Nico Rosberg agreed with this idea, saying “massive safety improvement. It will look ok too eventually. I’m all for it!”

 

     Halo system itself was an idea researched by MercedesAMG, while the government body FIA admitted that there are a few more solutions under research and consideration for driver safety improvement in the near future.

 

     Details and more pictures will follow.
