In the F1 British Grand Prix on July 3, China‘s first F1 driver Zhou Guanyu suffered an accident at the start, causing the car to roll over, slid a long distance with his head on the ground, and finally rolled over and stopped by the fence. The scene is very scary.But fortunately, Zhou Guanyu as a driver was almost unscathed and did not suffer too much damage.

After the incident, he himself also publicly reported that he was safe for the first time, saying that he thanked Halo for saving his life.
Recently, a blogger exposed the 3D simulation of Zhou Guanyu’s accident produced by Crashalong, which accurately restored the scene of the accident at that time, allowing us to see many details.
First of all, it can be seen that this is because the two vehicles on the side and behind Zhou Guanyu collided first, and finally the vehicle on the side stuck on the rear wheel of Zhou Guanyu, which led to the accident.
After rolling for half a week, Zhou Guanyu’s car had already started to spin and slide on the ground. It can be seen that at the moment of the grounding, the top of the car had begun to deform and break.However, the Halo system around the head has always been as strong and stable as the “Dinghaishenzhen”, which firmly protects the driver’s head. This time, further accidents were avoided.
It is reported that the HALO head protection system is made of titanium alloy material and has been mandatory to be installed on F1 cars since 2018 to protect the driver’s head.
Judging from the current public data, Halo weighs about 7 kilograms, costs about 12,000 euros (about 84,000 yuan), and can withstand a shock force of 12,000kg (12 tons), which is equivalent to a double-decker bus overhead.
The front end of the Halo is installed on the frame in front of the driver. It goes around the driver’s head from both sides and is fixed back on both sides of the cockpit. Because of this shape, it is nicknamed “flip-flops” by many netizens.
