F1’s halo device not under question after Nico Hülkenburg’s Abu Dhabi crash

The FIA race director, Charlie Whiting, insists the halo cockpit protection device did not prevent Nico Hülkenberg from exiting his car after his dramatic crash at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Having clipped Romain Grosjean on the opening lap of that race Hülkenburg’s car had barrel-rolled into the barriers and he was inside with the rear of his car on fire.
“When you have an accident like that the radio from the car is automatically routed to race control so we get immediate information,” Nico Hülkenberg said.
“I don’t know, if the halo blocked me or not,” himself said.
