It was one of the biggest sport stories of recent years – but now it’s COMPLETELY unrecognisable as it goes on display for the first time… So can YOU figure out what this remarkable item of memorabilia is?

The remains of a lifesaving piece of equipment will be showcased in Madrid for the very first time next month. The burnt-out object, known as a halo, was instrumental in saving the life of ex-Formula One driver Romain Grosjean, whose car split in two and burst into flames at the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2020. The halo device is a three-pronged titanium protection system which sits above the driver’s head. The device came into Formula One after driver Jules Bianchi died from a brain injury suffered four years before. A new Formula One exhibition, which will start in Madrid next month, will showcase the chassis of the Haas and demonstrate how important the halo has been since its introduction in the sport.
