The 2018 Formula 1 Season will be the first with the newly introduced head protection system known as the Halo. Haas Formula 1 is now the first to release images of what their 2018 cars will look like.
The controversial Halo has been made mandatory for the 2018 Formula 1 Season to the delight and dismay of many.
Many praise the push for more driver safety systems as positive while others see it as damaging to the sport. Danger is of course is omnipresent in Formula 1 and is part of what makes racing so thrilling and exciting to watch, but nobody ever wants to see a driver injured.
Many complain the that look of the Halo destroys the overall design of the cars and many of the prototype designs did indeed look horrendous. The final design and shape once incorporated into the car however appears to have little no impact on the overall look and feel.
So after having seen the first of the 2018 F1 cars, what are your thoughts? Does it ruin the look? Do you think it will improve driver saftey?
