Halo is ‘worst-looking mod in F1 history’

6 Mar, 2016

Hamilton says the ‘halo’ head protection device is “too drastic” and wants to be able to choose whether to use it.

Please no! This is the worst-looking mod in F1 history. I understand safety is a huge issue and something we have to work towards, but this is not the one…[F1 cars have] lost the cool look they used to have in the 1980s and 1990s. It is not F1 for me. If they do implement it, I hope we have a choice of whether we have to use it and are not forced to, because ultimately it is our safety.
