The Mercedes-Benz F1 Safety Car story

This new video from Mercedes-Benz takes a look at the company’s F1 Safety Cars throughout the years with the help of DTM veteran Bernd Mayländer.

Mayländer began the role at the 1999 San Remo Grand Prix during the F3000 race at the wheel of a CLK 55 AMG before moving to F1, the following year, in a CL55 AMG. His current office is the 435 kW (591 hp) SLS AMG GT.

To date, only five races have finished behind the Safety Car in Formula One, including this season’s round in Brazil, which was the first time for a season finale.
