The Halo is significant and I am happy to see the T wing and Shark Fin go away.

Is the halo really going to have a bar right in front of the driver like that?

I am not sure of that area of the F1 Body is wide enough to have adequate strength if they use 2 bars at the outside of the drivers vision similar to where the pillars of a windshield are.

Why no grid guys? 
Why no female drivers?

There is a large segment of the available financial population that is being missed by these marketing people. The first sport to figure out how to market to mixed audiences is going to crush it financially.
Iíd like to be part of it.
May the Schwartz be wit you

That make a little more sense.  I know F1 evaluated a similar solution and passed on it.

the 2018 Cars look amazing.  I really like the Yellow Jacket Renault, but Haas, Williams and Alfa Romeo are killer as well.  I kind of wish Red Bull would stay with the livery on the car right now, but I think it will have more red and yellow
Damn I am excited for the season to start now and they haven't even revealed the MB or Ferrari
