Re: Halo and DRS

Personally, I have no real issue with DRS with the current generation of cars. You have to fight tooth and nail to get it activated as has been mentioned before, something that wasn't as hard to do in years gone by as it is now with such complicated Aero effecting cars following. And now with DRS, it's like you get a bit of reward for getting close enough and you have a higher percentage chance to overtake. I disagree it's a free pass device, certainly it's too easy at some tracks, but others its not.

The Halo on the other hand is still terrible looking and I doubt that will change any time soon. But from a safety perspective its necessity is not really in question. The other thing I hate about it (and it's not something that many will care about) is that it's terribly obstructive with onboard camera shots like the side of the engine cover camera (which is my favourite) as well as the cockpit view on the driving games like F1 2019 etc. I really wish there was a better alternative, or at least a more aesthetically integrated design...
