it might loook better, and it will have far better / easier Aero to plan on using. But in that video the tyre still touches the head of the driver @milansson, so it seems it fails to do the job it really should be there for.
Red Bull’s Aeroscreen has run on track for the first time during practice for the Russian Grand Prix.
Daniel Ricciardo tested the cockpit protection canopy on his RB12 at the Sochi Autodrom.
Red Bull […]

Fer no.65 commented on the post, Overtaking “not as real” as it used to be – Alonso 6 hours, 30 minutes ago
Sadly we’ll never really see how good or bad racing without the artificial aids can be, because those guys at FIA won’t even try to run a race without DRS for instance.
Even the Manors can outpace the Mercedes, […]
In the round-up: Fernando Alonso says overtaking moves are less “real” in current F1 because differences in tyre performance make them so straightforward.

BasCB commented on the post, Rosberg expects Hamilton to recover from “messy start” 16 hours, 41 minutes ago
You really have to agree with Rosberg on that. Sure, he is driving really well recently, winning races and there is not much he could have done better so far this year. But if not for the issues for Hamilton and […]

Propably not @mijail. Just look at sports cars, they always have helmets on for extra safety as well (as do rallye cars, NASCAR and all touring cars)
@petebaldwin I have thought about this but I cannot really answer that question. It seems to me that it is simply a tradition. Historically, customer engines have been much more common than customer cars even […]

The colder the track temp is, the less likely anyone is to challenge Merc. They are on a completely different planet in cool conditions. Rosberg especially tends to excel when tyre heating is a serious issue […]
