Yes, I’m afraid it’s looking like though they improve the racing, it’s not lessening the danger. These have been touted since Wheldon’s death as lessening the chance of a car being launched. But Wheldon ran into the back of the car ahead at a pretty fast closing speed. Like others have said, I’m pretty sure if they don’t hold up on a street course, a scenario like we saw at Vegas won’t be avoided by these little fenders. Still, as odd as they look on an open wheel car, I approve of the way they’ve allowed cars to race closer without as many punctures and they don’t seem to be doing any harm. So there’s no reason to ditch the idea yet.
