Daniel Audetto Halo makes the Formula-1 is too safe

Daniel Audetto, who had to work as a Manager of many teams of Formula 1, considers the controversial question of the introduction next year of the system Halo.Daniel Audetto "Safety in Motorsport is a major challenge for the FIA, and, despite great strides in many areas, head protection in a single open cars was a concern for many years.But these dangers have always been part of this race. I lost friends, but the reality is that Formula 1 needs to take that risk. So many races now held on tracks with wide security zones, where it is almost impossible to get into an accident. It's like flying in the simulator, when the machine is safely controlled from a specially equipped room.There is now too much technology and security. And with that exaggerated safety and zero risk Formula 1, in my opinion, has lost part of its essence. It is less attractive for the audience. I think sometimes people want to see accidents as they want to see battles on the track".
