FORMULA One cars tend not to look too radically different from one year to the next but you’ll notice one major change for 2018 immediately: the wishbone-style bar that goes over the cockpit.
Known as the Halo protection system, it’s designed to reduce the risk of injury from debris that may strike the driver’s head in an accident. It’s controversial,to say the least, as many fans feel it spoils the look of the cars, but no-one can argue against keeping the drivers safe.
