I get your point here but I think if the vision at the edges of the glass get distorted it's more of a design flaw. The "shield" Red Bull tested last year didn't have this problem. It'sWell LMP cars are closed cockpit therefore there´s no confusion with normal vision.
But in a roadster this kind of curveture should be pretty bad
They do it with jet fighters.If only that same piece of crap shield was on Senna's car .... would that piece of broken suspension(tie rod?) even touched his helmet?? You be the judge.
And you still need to ask why above?? Making that shield optically sound is not rocket science ... they will figure it out.
Yep. The FIA frankly had blood on their hands over that Bianchi incident, and it was glossed over, swept under the rug. They seemingly got away with that calamity.How about red flagging the race when you are going to put a recovery vehicle in a critical runoff area in wet conditions?
The cars are fine as is!
I seriously doubt the halo or any other device that has been proposed would have saved Bianchi."Safer than it has ever been" Pfft, that's not what you said when Bianchi got ****ed.
stop saying bullshit, totally not the same curvature.Look at lmp cars, they got pretty much the exact same curveture...has not much to do with that
Put a roof on it and it is a helmet on wheels.that's a good point. may be Red Bull's aeroscreen concept had less curvature. shield was sexier tho.
another solution would be a more bubbled design for the screen, may be seek more inspiration on jet fighters canopy solutions not necessarily closing it entirely
like one comment above said, "anything but the halo".
Calm your tits man lolstop saying bullshit, totally not the same curvature.
Have you ever seen the size of a LMP1 windscreen, the aera ?
and you compare this to the aeroF1screen ?
did you read what Vettel said ?
could be useful because HE tested it.
