F1 Driver Zhou Guanyu Says Halo Device Saved His Life

F1 driver Zhou Guanyu has claimed that his car’s halo protection device saved his life during a crash at the British Grand Prix. Zhou was involved in a crash on the first lap which caused his car to flip over, skid across the track and smash into the fence. His car got wedged between the tire barrier and catch fencing so it took some time for him to be extracted from the Alfa Romeo. Mercedes’ George Russell ran over to check on Zhou as he had made contact with him during the collision. Zhou was taken to the medical center on a stretcher and he later tweeted, “I’m ok, all clear. Halo saved me today”. In a follow-up tweet, the F1 driver thanked the marshals and medical team at Silverstone, calling them “fantastic”. Halo, which was introduced in 2018, is made from titanium and forms a protection around the cockpit of formula one cars.
