Here's Bernd Rosemeyer driving a closed cockpit Auto Union in the 1935 race at AVUS.

It's an impossible compromise, isn't it?
At one time it was important for the driver to get out if the car burst into flames. Those days are thankfully gone, so some form of windshield is now more viable (and even desirable, considering what happened to Massa). But if it means an end to racing in the rain, no thanks!
