This seems like a legit idea to protect F1 drivers from the massive crashes that may happen during F1 races like Fernando Alonso’s last crash in Australia.
Take a look at these great photographs captured at the moment of the crash:
Red Bull Racing is leading the race when to comes to creating prototypes that are close to reality and function well as you can see in the video. My favorite F1 Driver from Red Bull Racing “Daniel Ricciardo” was able to complete a lap with the new Aeroscreen fitted to the F1 car prior to the 2016 Formula One Russian Grand Prix.
Basically the Red Bull Racing Aeroscreen came in to provide one of the many solutions suggested to increase F1 safety, just like Mercedes AMG’s Halo system which was recently tested by Ferrari. Although there was one big disadvantage for the Halo system is that it impaired the vision of the driver.
