    F1’s edit of the drivers press conference yesterday doesn’t exactly reflect the balance of debate on the subject of Halo. The positive comments from drivers were left in but the critical remarks from the likes of Nico Hulkenberg, Max Verstappen and Kevin Magnussen were edited out:

    Here’s some of what was said from both sides of the debate in the press conferences yesterday:

    This is completely unnecessary and will only further enrage those fans, who loathe the halo. It is good that the FIA / F1 have been doing some explanatory work but they should also admit that this device does not look perfect, that aesthetics do matter in F1 and promise that they will keep trying to find alternative solutions. Other opinions should be respected, F1’s official YouTube channel should not be the modern version of a Communist Party leaflet.
