"I have never been a fan of the halo but I have to say that I was very happy to have it over my head today", Leclerc, 20, said.

"What is clear is the significant tyre marks on both the chassis and the halo".

Formula One's "halo" device has divided opinion since its introduction this season, but the safety cage was Charles Leclerc's guardian angel in a potentially serious first-corner crash at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Wickens' vehicle flew into a fence and darted back toward the exposed head of another driver, Ryan Hunter-Reay - who ducked down and escaped unharmed.

Nobody was hurt in the incident triggered by the Renault driven by German Nico Hulkenberg, who locked his brakes and rammed the rear of Alonso's vehicle into the first corner, but it could have been much more serious.

"On the positive side, we are all ok". "It's a good proof", said Alonso.

"He drove past me like I wasn't even there on the straight", said Hamilton, who was quick to shake his rival's hand and offer congratulations.

"For example when they take the halo off to see if the fixings and the bolts that fixed it are all in good shape, and more importantly to see if it's been distorted".

"It's good news that all three of us are ok".

The halo was introduced in a bid to protect drivers' heads from flying debris, and appears to have done its job on Sunday.

Former F1 champion Nico Rosberg tweeted: "We can end the HALO discussion now".

Bianchi and Leclerc were childhood friends. "It's just incredible to find out again on lap one how sensitive these cars are with aerodynamics, when you have a few cars that bunch up in front of you how much grip and load you lose".
