Carlos Sainz believes the drivers are not being listened to on matters of safety after F1s Strategy Group decided to postpone the introduction of the Halo cockpit protection device until 2018.The FIA cited a lack of on-track testing as the reason, but Sainz believes the drivers should have made that call once they had been given a chance to test it.If I had to put a bet on now, I would say 80% are in favour, maybe 10% are I dont know and maybe 10% are totally against, Sainz said. But what is clear I think is that every driver should try it or should run it before 2017. Every driver should give an opinion and then basically a vote between drivers after running the Halo.I think this is the most common sense thing to do, even though at the end they probably dont take into consideration our vote, which is probably whats going to happen. But at least I think every driver should get a chance to run it and give an opinion on it.Halo was discussed at Fridays driver briefing with FIA safety delegate Charlie Whiting, but Sainz doubts their concerns will be listened to.We talked about it, it was definitely a very long meeting, but I dont know how much they will listen to us or take into their consideration our point of view, or how much of a difference it will make. Hopefully it helps and at least it takes the drivers view into consideration.Asked why he thought the drivers are not being listened to, Sainz added: Its a good question. My opinion is everyone took the decision to have a protection device in 2018. It doesnt mean its going to be a Halo, it means the FIA and all the teams are going to work to provide us with a safety component for 2018, but it probably means in 2017 well have nothing on the car so it opens the question of what happens if something happens in 2017?I think Halo could be - in my opinion - a solution just for one year before the come up with something even more technological, even more advanced. But its clear for 2017 they cannot bring this. They want to bring it in 2018 but what happens in 2017? Then you look back and say maybe we should have had the Halo for one year just as a prevention thing before bringing on the nice-looking, super safe aspect for 2018 that they have promised us is going to happen.Its a question mark that we all have but hopefully it will not be like that and hopefully nothing will happen. But we are all aware of it. Rockets Jerseys China . -- Devin Hester is done returning kicks in Chicago.
