Jean Todt on the success of the Halo

Jean Todt believes that the introduction of the Halo has been justified. 

FIA president Jean Todt believes Halo “demonstrated it was a good decision” to introduce the Halo for the 2018 Formula 1 season.

The cockpit safety equipment came under scrutiny but it has been tested a number of times this season, most noticeably in Charles Leclerc and Alonso's crash in Spa. 

When asked in an interview with Sky Sports if Halo saved a life in 2018, Todt said: “Honestly I don’t know.

“It probably demonstrated that it was a good decision. For me all that we can do to improve safety, we need to do it.

“We have seen not only in Formula 1 but in other categories in motorsport, with Sophia Flörsch in Macau, we have seen in Formula 2, we have it in different categories of motorsport, not only in single-seaters or circuit racing but it was important.

“So we will never compromise. We need to see every time how we can look at things better. I am sure we will have a possibility of improving.

“The most important is that we make the right decisions and improve what can be improved. Clearly, Halo was among those things.”
