BUT­TON: HALO WOULD HAVE HELPED ALONSO

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Jen­son But­ton be­lieves For­mula One’s con­tro­ver­sial halo de­vice would have helped Fer­nando Alonso in his spec­tac­u­lar crash. “He was up­side down when he landed and if he had the halo it would have helped him,” said But­ton, Alonso’s McLaren team-mate. “There was no need for him to get out in that sit­u­a­tion. There’s more safety risk of things hit­ting our head than any­thing hap­pen­ing when the car’s up­side down. “With the halo he would have had less im­pact on his hel­met. “The halo is the right di­rec­tion and we need it.”
