Raikkonen: Halo makes no big difference

Ferrari pilot Kimi Raikkonen does not think Halo's ride is any effect on the downside.


The Halo cockpit protection system, which became mandatory in 2018, was first used with the Australian GP.

While some of the pilots said it was difficult to talk because of Halo, as the weekend progressed, the views on the Halo issue diminished.

Fin pilot is confident that they will get used to the new rules as usual, exemplifying events that have happened before.

"This is the current rules and I do not think it makes a difference in driving. It may seem different, but people will get used to it very quickly."

"Every year we have a different rule and cars look different, I think it's a strange system, but there's no difference in terms of driving."

Raikkonen said there are other benefits of the system.

"In the race there was not much difference in the test, there is no disturbing side, even there is a reason for the sun to be blocked.

Sebastian Vettel thinks that the only damage is preventing the pilot's helmet from being seen.

"I think it's useful and safe, maybe it does not look good, but it can benefit us, it's even helped as someone says, and the sun hits the face."

"Maybe people on the tribunes might find it difficult to choose the pilot, but apart from that there really is not much difference."
