Description:


In 2016 and 2017 FIA tested some solution to improve safety for the drivers' head in F1.

Two devices were tested during those seasons.

The Halo and the Shield.

After the Halo was criticized for the decreased visibility, FIA considered to try the Shield.

The Shield was an open canopy made of polycarbonate, and was intended to provide significant protection from debris while ensuring unrestricted forward vision for the driver.

The new device made its debut on the SF70H of Sebastian Vettel, during the free practice of the 2017 British GP, at Silverstone

The Ferrari driver was unimpressed with several aspects of the Shield.

“I tried it this morning, I got a bit dizzy.” said Vettel. “Forward vision is not very good. I think it’s because of the curvature, you get quite a bit of distortion.”

Vettel revealed the team cut short their planned evaluation of the shield. “We had a run plan with it but I didn’t like it so we took it off.”

Fortunately the Shield was binned in favor of the Halo, which offers less protection from small debris, but gives a huge protection from heavy crashes that involve the driver's head.
