In late summer-early autumn Formula 1 team was seriously concerned that the introduction of “halo” can have a serious impact on the timetable for the development of new machines. Some even feared that I will miss for the preseason tests.
“If “halo” is integrated into the monocoque, will not pass the crash test, it will be the end,” said COO Force India Otmar, Szafnauer.
But it is noteworthy that the chassis of the team from Silverstone first passed additional crash tests associated with the introduction of the system of protection of the cockpit. As they say on Twitter PG Tعch, which writes accredited engineer of the FIA, the tests took place last Monday.
