"We sincerely hope that the issues that plagued the broadcast—a huge missing chunk of the pre-show, pervasive sound problems, commercials during key moments like race restarts, a poor handling of the Sky feed, and a lack of coverage of the Haas retirement—aren’t a preview of what’s to come."


ESPN's F1 Season Opener Broadcast Was A Catastrophe

Another typical ESPN auto racing production in the books.

I watched the race and the coverage was a big step down from what it has been in the past.

The combination of Varsha, Hobbes, and Matchette was fantastic. You had a professional commentator, an ex-F1 driver, and an ex-F1 mechanic. They had great insights and were on top of every aspect of the race as it was developing.

This last race, not so much.

FIA working on new version of halo for 2021 with better appearance
Jonathan Noble,Autosport 11 hours ago

Quote:
The FIA is working on a new version of the halo for 2021 with an improved appearance, as it continues research to improve the cockpit safety device.

The benefits of the halo were brought into focus after Charles Leclerc escaped unhurt from a spectacular opening corner crash in Belgium when his car was hit by Fernando Alonso's wheel as it flew over the Sauber.

Although an investigation into the Leclerc accident is ongoing, one preliminary conclusion is that the force with which Alonso's wheel struck Leclerc's halo was around half of its full test load. The halo is currently tested to withstand a force of 125kN (the equivalent of 12 tonnes in weight), and the FIA estimates Leclerc's halo withstood an impact of 56kN. "The initial conclusions are that the halo saw a load roughly half of the test load, more or less in exactly in the same place as one of the test loads is applied to the halo, and there is no distortion of the halo," added Whiting. "It was taken off with no buckling of it, and the Sauber guys have crack-checked it and it seems to be absolutely fine."

We cant even get any more additional NHRA dragsters to wear it since the original 2 customers years ago (4 DSR and 1 JFR). Nobody wants it.
