"Thank you very much for all the messages. I wasn't for the halo some years ago, but I think it's the greatest thing that we've brought to Formula 1, and without it I wouldn't be able to speak with you today.

"The thing is when I get in the car I know that I'm taking risk.

"I respect the dangers that are in this sport. I think I posted about it while we were in that break because I mean it's horrifying.

"The cockpit, I don't know what Gs he pulled but I'm just so grateful that the halo worked and the barrier didn't slice his head off or something like that.

"It could have been so much worse. It's a reminder to us and hopefully to the people that are watching that this is a dangerous sport.

"That's why we're out there pushing to the limit and playing with that limit. You also have to respect it.

"I think it shows the amazing job that Formula One and the FIA have done over time to be able to walk away from that.

"Of course that will be investigated and they'll do a lot of work to make sure that doesn't happen again."
