Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen tries out halo in F1 testing


The sport is looking at ways of improving cockpit security to leave drivers less exposed to the risk of head injuries after French driver Jules Bianchi and British IndyCar driver Justin Wilson died last year.

The "halo" design works by forming a kind of semi-circular barrier around the driver's head and is the concept most favored as it offers protection against flying debris without completely closing the cockpit.

I've never seen a halo design around a driver's head before. Wild.

With it on the car, it was sort of hard for me to figure out what was what.
