The pilot of Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen questioned the need for the implementation of the system of protection of the head “halo”, given the already high standards of safety in modern Formula 1.
“I don’t like “halo,” but we must respect the decision of the FIA, – quotes AUTOSPORT Verstappen. – After the introduction of the virtual safety car the risk of speeding under the yellow flags was much smaller.
Wheel now fixed firmly enough and practically does not come off, and small parts “halo” is unlikely to protect. So I don’t understand why we need this system”.

In solidarity with the Dutchman Haas driver Kevin Magnussen.
“A Formula 1 car does not have to be ugly,’ said the Dane. – Ferrari invokes more emotion than the Mazda, and it is connected including with passion. But when something looks ugly, the two opinions can’t be”.

Jolyon Palmer, who plays for Renault, thinks that the FIA took too hasty a decision.
“It’s an over-reaction to problems in other racing series,’ said the Briton. Sadly, that was made such a wrong decision. The way back will be gone. Formula 1, which we know will come to an end – I mean F1 with open cockpits.
Since 1994 in F1, there was one tragic incident, and in that case [Jules Bianchi] “halo” would not have helped.
Do not think that if I show disrespect to the FIA. Just what formula racing is open cockpit.
