Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Nico Ros­berg be­came the lat­est driver to test us­ing the de­vel­op­men­tal Halo head pro­tec­tion de­vice when he ran it on his Mercedes dur­ing free prac­tice at Spa. Ros­berg went fastest dur­ing FP1 on Fri­day when us­ing the de­vice. He said: “It was good to try it and they’ve done a great job with it be­cause it doesn’t dis­turb me at all when I’m driv­ing, it just in­creases the safety a lot. I know it’s not nice vis­ually. But it’s such a big step in safety and I think it’s a good thing. When driv­ing you don’t no­tice the top part, you could even bring it down a bit.”
