Japanese F2 driver Tadasuke Makino reckons the new 'halo' head protection device, which made its debut in the junior series and Formula One this season, saved his life in a race at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.
If you can't hide it, embrace it. When the Halo safety device was mandated for Formula One cars this year, many were quick to draw parallels with the structure's eccentric looks and a flip-flop shoe. Now it seems McLaren is in on the joke, as it has joined forces with a flip-flop manufacturer.
Here's why the halo won't work for the circuit.
The Halo didn't make it to the starting grid in 2017, and might not be there in 2018.
Have you ever wondered whether a Raptor would beat a Warthog in a race? Wonder no more.
So far it looks like the halo will provide that protection.
Fernando Alonso's accident will be a good test case for fully understanding any downsides to the introduction of the Halo in Formula 1, say leading figures.
Although Ferrari has already run an FIA-preferred open structure, Red Bull wants to experiment with a different solution that features an acrylic canopy.
Formula 1's plans for a new 'Halo' closed cockpit, which is coming in 2017, may include the addition of a clear panel for even more driver protection.
Ford, Galpin Auto Sports, Xbox, and 343 Industries team up to turn an F-150 into a one-off Sandcat battle truck, designed to celebrate the launch of Halo 5: Guardians.
The first time Qualcomm executives met with their auto-industry counterparts about an experimental technology that could wirelessly charge electric vehicles, they thought it'd be a flop.
343 Studios is preparing its Halo 4 video game for release on November 6, and someone there had the sensational idea to commission a life-sized M12 Force Application Vehicle, otherwise known as a Warthog. G4's X-Play program visited Aria, an Irvine, California company whose custom build work we've seen at SEMA, to see how the electronic specs are being translated into a full-scale drivable Brute-killing machine.
We're convinced that Forza Motorsport is out to take over the universe. With the racing simulator's only real competitor, Gran Turismo, sucking wind, the title is kicking in teeth and taking what it wants. An example, you ask? Not only will Forza 4 feature the M12 FAV Warthog from Halo, the combat vehicle will receive an introduction from none other than Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame. How's that for a few of your favorite worlds colliding? Word has it that the Warthog isn't the only vehicle t
