Nico Rosberg said the Formula 1 halo did not “disturb” him at all as he set the Belgian Grand Prix opening practice pace while carrying the device on his Mercedes.

Rosberg became the first driver to do more than an installation lap with the halo when he used it for two runs at Spa on Friday morningand set the session’s benchmark lap in the process.

“It was good to try it and they’ve done a great job with it because it doesn’t disturb me at all when I’m driving, it just increases the safety a lot,” said Rosberg.

“I know it’s not nice visually, looking from outside it doesn’t make the cars prettier of course.

“But it’s such a big step in safety and I think it’s a good thing.”

He said if anything the structure could have been closer to the driver’s head.

“You don’t even notice the top part,” Rosberg said. “They could even come down with that.”
