FIA hits back at safety car turtle jibe

The FIA has hit back at driver complaints about the speed of Formula 1’s Aston Martin safety car. The sport’s governing body has now returned fire by insisting that the safety car is not about “outright speed” but “safety”. “The impact of the speed of the safety car on the performance of the cars following is a secondary consideration, as the impact is equal amongst all competitors”. The FIA concluded by declaring that it is up to the drivers to operate their cars “in a safe manner at all times according to the conditions of their car and the circuit”.
