Formula 1 – 2018 Season
The 2018 Formula 1 season is just around the corner, with less than a month left to go until the start of the season’s first Grand Prix held in Melbourne, Australia (on March 25th). All teams already unveiled their new cars and started official pre-season testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Spain.
As in every year, teams introduce fresh looks of their cars to fulfill sponsorship (and FIA) requirements but also to impress their fans and stand out from the competition. Some teams also want to refer to their history and make a kind of visual connection to historical cars.
As we at Garage Chief are F1 fans and watch the series closely, we wanted to take this chance to introduce ten amazing car projects that we’re going to admire on 21 tracks this year, starting in Australi all the way to Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
F1 2018: What is the Halo?
From this year onwards, according to new FIA rules, all vehicles must have a halo cockpit protection device in an attempt to improve driver safety.
The one change every F1 fan will immediately notice in 2018 is the introduction of the halo – the cockpit protection device designed to further improve driver safety in the event of an accident, and in particular to deflect debris away from the head.
As it can be easily spotted, an introduction of the new Halo protection device had a big impact on the cars’ design, the way they looked, the aerodynamics. How did the teams manage this challenge? Take a look at our photo gallery and see for yourself.
