Fernando Alonso says F1's 'halo' head protection may have saved Charles Leclerc in their huge crash in Belgium.  Impact marks show where Alonso's car made contact with Leclerc's car. Fernando Alonso said F1's 'halo' head protection may have saved Charles Leclerc in their huge crash in Belgium. Alonso's McLaren landed on top of Leclerc's Sauber after being launched into the air by Renault's Nico Hulkenberg, who missed his braking point at the first corner at Spa. Television replays show Alonso's car being deflected by the halo, which had impact marks on it afterwards. "I saw the replay and how good was the proof for the halo," Alonso said.

The Engineering Challenge of Giving Formula 1 Cars Halos. The marquee change to this year's Formula 1 car design is the "halo"—a titanium band meant to protect the driver from flying debris. Williams Martini Racing. Share.  We're just a month from the start of the 2018 Formula 1 season, and that means it's debutante season, where teams take the wraps off the extreme machines they’ve spent the offseason building. So far, the theme seems to be retro-chic. McLaren has gone for an “papaya” orange and blue livery for its MCL33 car, inspired by its early 1970s racing machines.

It's the next generation of safety in Formula 1 Take a brief look at the halo, how it works, and why it's been introduced for the 2018 Formula 1 Season. For more Revealed: How the halo passed its first major real-world testAutosport.

The Halo concept was first proposed by Mercedes after the FIA had started its research into rudimentary front roll cages. The first Halo prototype -- made of steel -- underwent static tests at RAF Bentwaters in 2015 and performed well against a 20 kg tyre fired from a compressed nitrogen-powered cannon at speeds of 225 km/h.  The final and most contentious point concerns the look of an F1 car fitted with Halo. Niki Lauda said last year that the introduction of Halo risked destroying the DNA of Formula One, which has featured open cockpits since the inaugural world championship event in 1950.

Next year’s Formula 1 cars will all be fitted with the Halo cockpit protection system, the FIA announced on Wednesday.  Today the Formula One Strategy Group met to discuss a number of issues regarding the FIA Formula One World Championship. For the first time, all teams competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship were present at the meeting with observers from Renault Sport Formula One Team, Scuderia Toro Rosso, Sauber F1 Team and Haas F1 Team in attendance. Key topics discussed at the meeting included: Frontal cockpit protection.

Если хотите, Halo – это второй шлем. Если кто-то из гонщиков говорит, что теперь они могут сильнее атаковать, потому что защита стала лучше, то это глупости. Пусть болельщики не позволяют вводить себя в заблуждение».  «Я полностью за безопасность. Я за Halo или, может быть, за «Щит». Не забывайте о значении Halo для других чемпионатов. В Формуле 1 лучший уровень безопасности на трассе, но в других сериях – нет. Там опасные аварии происходят чаще, чем в Формуле 1.

The center section doesn't seem to impede much visibility, but the halo is very noticeable when the driver looks up. Speaking to Autosport last week, Bottas said he got used to the halo in simulator testing. "I've done a race simulation already with the halo, and I have to say during the race I never noticed it anymore," he said. "Initially, it's something new, it looks different—some people say it's not nice at all. But I think it's only a matter of time everyone will get used to it, and if it can avoid even one injury—big or small—it's a good devi

FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship. FIA Masters Historic Sports Car Championship. FIA Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior Cars.  Once complete, the Halo is manually shot-cleaned to create an abrasive surface that makes it easier for teams to attach any aerodynamic parts that are permitted by the FIA. All of these steps are essential for producing such a high-performance device. The Halo has to withstand 125 kiloNewtons of force (equivalent to 12 tonnes in weight) from above for five seconds without a failure to any part of the survival cell or the mountings. It must also withstand forces of 125 kN from the side. Without question, it is now the strongest element on a Formula One car.

The first Halo prototype -- made of steel -- underwent static tests at RAF Bentwaters in 2015 and performed well against a 20 kg tyre fired from a compressed nitrogen-powered cannon at speeds of 225 km/h. A steel prototype shrouded in carbon fibre was then track tested by Ferrari during winter testing in February 2016, with drivers reporting acceptable levels of visibility despite the vertical pylon and protective section directly in front and above the cockpit.  However, Formula One cars have undergone many visual changes in the name of safety in past decades and all of them have eventually been accepted as the norm.

Formula 1's new Halo for driver protection still looks about as dumb as conceivably possible from the outside, but finally there’s POV video to show what it’s like from the driver’s perspective. Watch and judge for yourself, but this doesn’t look too bad. Mercedes released this video of the only view the new W09 will have: staring at an empty track in front of it. Williams also released this video of test driver Robert Kubica from a higher, wider view. (I’m so happy to be saying that. It’s good to see Kubica in an F1 car with regularity again.) If you want to understand why F1 has a halo,

Formula 1 teams have started receiving the first definitive examples of the halo in recent weeks, giving them the first proper chance to assess the device's impact on the 2018 cars. Every halo run on track up to now has been a 'fake', representing only the shape of the design. The testing gave teams some feedback on the aerodynamic impact, and in Abu Dhabi we even saw some early attempts at directing the airflow, within the permitted limits.  But the halo, its mountings and the strengthening of the chassis that is now required has more than absorbed that increase. "I think total installation weight is around 14-15kg," said Green.

Formula 1 2018 preview: everything you need to know before the Australian GP. “We explored a number of different options,” says research engineer Andy Mellor, a consultant to the Global Institute for Motor Sport Safety, the FIA’s safety partner. “The challenge is that the position you need to put such a protective device in is also a position where the driver needs to see.  The FIA has named three official Halo manufacturers and the units will be used in F1 and F2 this year, with Formula E following in the 2018/19 season. In F1, teams can fit limited aerodynamic fairings to slightlyvary the looks. That look, of course, has been criticised somewhat.

The new Formula 1 Halo. ‘I’m not impressed with the Formula 1 Halo, and if you gave me a chainsaw I would take it off,’ announced Toto Wolff at the Mercedes car launch earlier this year. ‘As impressive as the statistics are of the Halo withstanding the weight of a London bus on top of it, this is a Formula 1 car, whether it has a bus on top or not.’ Whether you agree with Wolff or not, the Halo improves driver safety and in today’s era, that means it’s here to stay. But it’s not just Formula 1 that is adopting head protection systems, Halos are now raced in Formula 2 and have been integrated i
