Massive thanks for asking my question Keith. Interesting response, since the target of each protection system is different (the Windscreen aims to deflect showers of small debris, typical on oval pileups, while the Halo aims to deflect loose tyres). He may have a point there.
Best of luck on the coming days!

You won’t be short of Halo questions, I’m sure of it. However, one thing I’d like to ask most of the grid is whether they’d prefer the canopy style windshield IndyCar has been testing, and of course why or why not. Maybe they could compare and contrast it and mention how it’d be better or worse than the current halo. And another question could be,…[Read more]

Exactly. Plus the idea is to throw as much air as you can to the diffuser, which is the most effective source of downforce. It’s not only that the inlets are tiny, it’s also that they’re high up and leave room for […]

I do agree it’s good and catchy. But if three parties own a team, I don’t see them agreeing to name the whole organization after only one of them. Sahara would have massive publicity the other two parties won’t. […]

I’ll never understand why this wasn’t used as a Safety Car when they began being used frequently. How cool would that have been? If they used it now bet some drivers would crash out just to hear the thing.
I like how the media here are sorta hyping Brazil being dropped from the schedule since it could mean Punta del Este would be back. As if. Unfortunately, childish government disputes scared FE away from Uruguay. I bet they’re just fine with Buenos Aires and Santiago.
Don’t get me wrong, I wish so hard Punta could be back on the schedule, but as I…[Read more]
I’ve tried the Formula Ultimate (a 2017 styled fictional car) in Automobilista and it features an option to put up a halo. I dunno if it’s due to the limitations of the game but I tested it on the Red Bull Ring […]
When Lando Norris makes a start, he doesn’t accelerate past the cars in front, he makes them go to the back.
That article on McLaren’s third pedal from 1997 is very much worth reading. Lots of interesting insight on one of the last displays of inventiveness in F1. Made me remember the fuzz, I was very little and I didn’t […]

I miss Jev. He could’ve done a decent job in Kvyat’s position alongside Ricciardo. I don’t think Jev was better than Max, but he was miles ahead of Kvyat, that’s for sure. He deserved more F1 time. In fact he […]
Carlitox commented on the post, US GP drivers presentation was "a bad copy" of Indy 500 – Alonso 3 years, 9 months ago
My thoughts exactly. I liked it a lot but I do reckon if we do this every race, it’s going to get old very, very fast. But I wouldn’t mind at all to see it again in Austin next year.
Indeed. If Vettel hadn’t done that and just kept his cool behind Hamilton, he would’ve won, because Hamilton’s headrest was going to fail anyway. Every sensible tifoso was fuming at Vettel that day, and maybe still is.
The way TV broadcasters handled the race was as atrocious as the circuit. I’m sad to say it because I love Argentinean racing, but AFAIK the race was delayed, transmission was cut in free-to-air TV and on cable it […]

Two words: Unlimited testing. Back in the late 90s if you wanted to develop your engine you just asked for an empty car and cram the thing right in, hire a driver and fire up the thing, all day, in any track. […]
