Despite the FIA being insistent that a head protection system is coming in 2018, Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner believes that the Shield will need to be properly tested in all conditions before it can be safely introduced into the sport, much like the Halo system was previous year.
"Calls for some form of protection for the drivers" heads have grown louder since Jules Bianchi's death in 2015 following an accident at the previous year's Japanese Grand Prix.
"I've made myself clear since the beginning: we don't need anything", said Haas driver Grosjean.
Previous trials of other possible head protection systems, The Halo and the Aeroscreen, have split opinion, largely for aesthetic reasons, but Williams' technical chief Paddy Lowe is optimistic the Shield has potential. (The shield) as bad as the halo. "I tried the Halo past year, I hated it, it made me sick so we haven't yet found a good solution". We've actually stopped discussing it, because it's safety related.
"We don't make the rules, but the GPDA is here to ensure the racing goes well, the safety is increasing and the fans are having a good time. We are up for better safety, but it's not up for us to come up with a solution or say we want this or this".
The World Championship leader was testing out the new piece of equipment as feedback on the "shield" and "halo" concepts continue to be gathered in order to improve the driver's safety.
