Prost: Halo goes against F1's DNA – Motorsport.com

While the Frenchman, who is a special advisor to the Renault F1 team and helped set up the successful Renault e.dams FE team, accepts that improving safety is something that should always be welcomed, he is against the Halo on visual grounds.
“I was always defending and supporting safety – but I cannot say I am happy about the Halo,” Prost told Motorsport.com.
“It is against the spirit of the design and beauty and DNA of Formula 1 and the single-seater DNA.
“It is difficult to say this for me, because you cannot ever say you do not want to improve the safety which is vital and important in this sport. But personally for me I don’t like the look of it.”
While the FIA has suggested that use of the Halo will filter down to other categories once it has been proved in F1, Prost says he would be happy not to see it used in FE.
“I do not want to see it on a Formula E car because they will try and put it on all the single-seater cars,” he said.
The FIA says that junior categories will get to use the Halo once they move to new chassis in their series – as the current version of the cockpit head protection system cannot be retro-fitted to older spec cars.
