In the wake of Justin Wilson’s fatal accident at Pocono Raceway in the second-to-last IndyCar race of the season, the discussion of whether open-wheel, open-cockpit cars should remain open cockpit has once again come to light.

The FIA is set to conduct closed-cockpit tests this month, and down the road perhaps, it could be possible to see a switch to closed cockpits in order to protect drivers.

Felipe Massa, Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button explain why it may be a necessary change, although Vettel admits he’s not a fan of closed cockpits.
