Formula 1’s bosses are mulling over the prospect of adding a digital ticker to the Halo when it comes into play later this year. The controversial head protection device has caused a stir with many fans, who claim it disrupts the visual aspect of the cars.
However, the FIA decided to go ahead and implement the device, as it was deemed to be the strongest and only method that’s currently ready. In practice, teams have run with a standard black Halo, testing its effects and allowing the drivers to get used to it.
Teams will be allowed to slightly modify the Halo, and they will be painted to blend in with the livery of the cars.
