FIA working 'very closely' with IndyCar on windscreen

The FIA is working “very closely” with IndyCar on the development of the windscreen (pictured above) in order to understand its future viability for Formula 1, RACER has learned.

Following development over the past two years, the FIA has adopted the Halo cockpit protection device (pictured below) in a number of its championships, with Formula 1, Formula 2 and the next generation Formula E car all carrying the concept this year. That choice came after brief track testing of a screen in Silverstone last year, with IndyCar then testing a similar windscreen solution at Phoenix this week.
