  1. I must be getting used to seeing photos of the halo because it doesn’t to grate on me as much anymore. I do wish that it could be integrated with the high cockpit sides next to the driver’s head like Red Bull’s aeroscreen was. It would provide continuity of lines and look better aesthetically. I wouldn’t even mind if the head protection was made thicker to enable this, because where it joins the top of the sidepods currently is a bit of an eyesore.

    1. Its funny that you say that as I was having the exact same thought. Originally, I recoiled at the look of the Halo, but now that I see the Halo2 from multiple angles, especially the wide shot, it doesn’t look to terribly bad…I like they way they’ve designed it to flow into the side pods…

    2. Would the side head protection even be required; if the Halo already (in a sense) covers that area?
      I’m guessing the headrests would still be required, to limit head movement in the event a crash.

      But I assume we’ll see both features more integrated when we’re shown next years cars, as they’d be designed with the Halo in mind.
      I’ll still reserve judgement until then.
