Pierre Gasly tests out the halo for Red Bull

Head protection devices are mooted to be introduced to F1 next season.

Gasly, who only completed one system-check lap with the halo installed, said: “For sure it looks different but from the inside of the car it doesn’t change much.”

Red Bull tested a windscreen device in Russia earlier this season, while Ferrari have pioneered the halo device, running it in pre-season testing as well as in the first free practice session at Silverstone last Friday.
