Henson Button, even said that if you finally choose the Aeroscreen, people will look at the old cars and think that they look strange without the small windshield. For his part, his partner Fernando Alonso was also in favor of the Network device Bull, ensuring that it is probably a better solution from the aesthetic point of view.
however, that does not mean that the Halo Cockpit of Ferrari not to have some fans. In that sense, Felipe Mass were in favour of the device of Ferrari, like Romain Grosjean, who believes that in Formula 1 the driver’s helmet must be exposed, as otherwise, the car would become a closed vehicle.
The controversy is just beginning.
