Aston Martin – official safety and medical cars of Formula 1

Official Safety Car of Formula 1 based on Aston Martin’s sports car, Vantage. All this, together with a comprehensive aero kit and a switch to lower-profile tyres, the Aston Martin Vantage Official F1 Safety Car has all the credentials to handle a Formula 1 circuit. The ‘Marshalling System’ is integrated into the instrument cluster and the dashboard, allowing both the driver and co-driver to see which colour flag is being shown on the track, by the illumination of the same coloured LED light; mirroring the system that also features by regulation in all F1® team cars. TV cameras are also mounted on top of and inside the car, to provide live TV footage. The ‘Marshalling System’ and the rear-view mirror camera display have also been installed into the medical car. The development of both these Official Safety Car of Formula 1 and Official Medical Car of Formula 1 was carried out by the engineering team at Aston Martin.
