The FIA has not yet made a decision on which cockpit device to incorporate into it’s 2017 rules. The purpose of the cockpit device is to help protect the driver’s head in the case of flying debris or an accident. So far two designs have been the front runners, Red Bull’s Aeroscreen, and Ferrari’s Halo.

According to Bernie Ecclestone he has stated that he does not like Red Bull’s Aeroscreen design, but he doesn’t have the final say. The FIA will make a decision on which design is used moving forward by July 1. Ecclestone has made lots of remarks about the desire of FIA wanting to improve cockpit safety. Specifically, he’s said “I don’t like any of them, the sport should do nothing with regard to cockpit protection.”
