SILVERSTONE – Sebastian Vettel of Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 team tested out the teams latest version of the cockpit Shield or wind screen to aid in driver protection moving forward. The first laps were put in during FP1 (Free Practice 1) for the British Grand Prix.
The public first put its eyes on the Shield Thursday when it was first fitted the Ferrari. The Sheild process has been an ongoing process by the FIA in charge of rules and regulations for the sport. Driver safety and protection has been at the top of their priorities for years now.
The FIA has been testing the devices during indoor and outdoor exercises and so far this solution for the Shield has shed the brightest light on the future of driver safety the FIA thinks. The first system was put in place last year as a halo system that looked to be obstructive to the drivers view but most did not complain about that but this canopy jet fighter style device seems to gives the drivers more sight.
