So, why did Seb Vettel feel dizzy with the shield fitted? The LMP1 and 2 cars have similar canopies and the drivers don't seem to have issues. Is It a different driving position between the F1 cars and LMP cars? I'm not criticising Seb, just curious to know why LMP drivers don't suffer.
The shield is a polycarbonate screen produced by Italian manufacturer Isoclima, which makes bulletproof and security glass screens as well as other clear screens for use in buildings, cars and trains. It also makes the canopies used in LMP1 and LMP2 cars which compete in endurance racing.
forget it, just read that the halo system is in for 2518. Thank God CH9 have only got this for a short time can't afford SKY so like many others, I shall try to keep in touch but gently drift off to MotoGP full time. I will probably miss the madness *grin*. Cheers anyway. Simon.

It seems an odd time to be rocking the boat and cutting staff. Elon has his reasons, no doubt, but what they are remains a mystery. If a link is established between the firings and the UAW organizing campaign, Tesla and Musk will have opened a can of very large worms.
Look. For me, the list starts and stops at number forty-six. Il dottore. He 8217 s the boss, the head man, the top dog, the big cheese, the head honcho, number one
So, as the sports seasons – football, basketball, hockey – start getting juicy in the United States, MotoGP is preparing to call it another year. Reason #699 in my book 1555 Reasons MotoGP is Invisible in the United States , subtitled “Another Reason I’m Not Rich and Famous.”
“While we mourn the loss of an incredible human being, we also celebrate his life, his achievements, his passion for motorcycles, and his love of friends and family. We hope that Tom’s life story serves as inspiration to everyone that fierce determination and good will can yield a life extraordinarily well lived.”
Is he the GOAT? There is a good argument for him and a handful of others. If Marquez keeps it together he will also be a part of the convention. If he wants to impress us, he should
