Lando Norris has called for changes following Guanyu Zhou’s crash at the British Grand Prix.
The Chinese driver crashed out of the race after George Russell collided with his rear. Zhou went upside-down, over the barriers, and into the catch fence. He was then trapped between the catch fence and the tire barrier.
Another frightening incident occurred in the Formula 2 Feature Race between Nissany and Hauger, when the latter was forced off-track and flew over the sausage curbs, landing on top of Nissany, who was saved by the halo.
When asked if something needed to say, Norris said “Yep.”
“I think we’ve mentioned it several times. Every now and then, you maybe have a year where you get away with it and nothing happens, and everyone’s like, ‘Oh, it’s okay’.
“But you have freak accidents. What you saw in the last corner in F2, it can happen, even when you least expect it.
“I think the Halo genuinely did save someone’s life again today, [which is] good to see. But yeah, something needs to be done.
“It’s always hard because, whatever curb is there, if you’ve got a guy coming to T-bone you, no matter what height you’re at, it’s never a good thing.
“But the way that they kind of get smashed up into the air and launched in the air, it probably comes out worse that way than if it was just a pure side impact, in some circumstances.”
