Mosley supports Halo, budget cap
Font size:
Tuesday 12 February at 09:35 : Feb.12 (GMM) Max Mosley says he is fully supportive of F1's latest moves to protect the drivers.

The 'Halo' cockpit protection system has been highly controversial, but former FIA president Mosley says Jean Todt was right to introduce it.

"I haven't been to a race since 2009, but I watch a lot of the races on TV," he told Auto Motor und Sport.

"I have to say that cars without Halo seem almost old-fashioned now," the 78-year-old said. "They somehow look wrong.

"Since the 60s, I've heard that the sport is getting more and more safe and money is playing an increasingly important role, which spoils the fun. And yet formula one has only become more and more popular.

"I advise the people who glorify the risk to go to a funeral. There is nothing worse than experiencing the death of a young sports person. Ok, he died doing something he loved. But it is terrible for the relatives," Mosley added.

Mosley also backs FIA president Todt and Liberty Media's efforts to install mandatory team budget caps, but notes that the teams will never be fully supportive.

"As advanced as they are with their technology, they are so conservative about changing the system," he said. "They just do not want to change anything.

"The big money teams don't want to give up their advantage over the teams with less money in particular. If you employ three times as many people, it's like racing with an engine with greater displacement.

"These teams will never agree to a budget cap," added Mosley.
