Lewis Hamilton and Hulkenberg's view on closed cockpits in F1

Ahead of the Italian Grand Prix, Formula 1 drivers give their opinions on introducing closed cockpits to the sport.

The closed cockpits in open-wheel racing debate has been reignited after the recent death of Justin Wilson during an IndyCar race in which Wilson was hit by flying debris from another car.

Force India's Nico Hulkenberg, who has driven in both F1 and sports cars, believes that open cockpits are "part of the DNA" of racing, whilst Lewis Hamilton worries that increased safety measures may detract from the danger element of the sport, which he thinks attracts fans.
