'You get quite a bit of distortion, plus you get quite a bit of downwash down the straights pushing the helmet forwards.

"We had a run plan with it but I didnt like it so we took it off".

Now the first images of the new shield cockpit protection device have been revealed.

But progress with the shield advanced quicker than anticipated, opening the way for a short track test to be scheduled for Friday at Silverstone with Ferrari.

Sebastian Vettel completed one lap at the start of FP1 at Silverstone with the shield attached to his Ferrari, but he abandoned plans to complete further running with it because it made him feel dizzy. Forward vision is not very good.

Following trials of the Halo and Aeroscreen last season, the FIA chose to delay the introduction of a head protection device until 2018 in order to find a more suitable alternative, with drivers raising concerns over visibility, with aesthetical reasons also cited.

The red cars were beaten by Red Bull in the first session and though they improved to be best of the rest in the afternoon, were still half a second behind the Silver Arrows.

"It's agreed to put it [cockpit protection] on the car for next year".

'[The shield] is as bad as the Halo.

"We don't make the rules".

"From what I heard from Sebastian it lacks time and development, compared to the halo".

"We're worried about reflections but there may be solutions to that".
