Mercedes-AMG F1 safety car- Goodwood

Aston Martin and Mercedes set to share F1 safety car duties in 2021

Aston Martin is set to join Mercedes next season as a provider of Formula One's official safety cars, according to media reports yesterday.

It said Aston Martin's new DBX SUV, which uses a Mercedes-AMG V8 engine, would be used as a medical vehicle.

Although it is understood that no final decision has been made, sources have revealed that it is looking increasingly likely that Mercedes will step back from being the sole safety auto supplier.

The use of the safety auto would then be shared equally between the two manufacturers so that the financial burden would also be shared.

The agreement, which is yet to be formally announced but which has been confirmed by Racefans.net, will result in Aston Martin taking over the duties from part-shareholder Mercedes at 12 of the planned 23 races next season.

Furthermore, Mercedes AMG F1 boss Toto Wolff acquired earlier this year shares in Aston Martin, as also did future Aston Martin Racing driver Sebastian Vettel.
