Gasly "surprised" by Halo visibility
Pierre Gasly says he was surprised by the visibility from the cockpit after testing with the Halo protection system at Silverstone on Tuesday.
The Frenchman completed two installation laps with the device attached to his Red Bull RB12, as the team tested it for the first time.
Red Bull had pioneered the Aeroscreen system, but that has been ruled out by the FIA for 2017.
While Gasly said the visibility did not change much, he admitted the view from the cockpit was "weird".
"Actually I was a bit surprised, it doesn't change much," said Gasly, who drove with a camera in his glasses to record eye-line footage.
"But it looks a bit weird from the inside.
"You see something on top of the helmet and also the vision when you look straight you kind of see this triangle on top. It's different."
Gasly said, however, that he was not a fan of any cockpit protection systems.
"I don't really like it, because for me F1 always looked like open cockpit. We'll see.
"From the inside point of view it doesn't change much so we'll see what they will say about it."
