“Accidents cannot be completely avoided. And this is when we see how important the work of the stewards and the dependability of the safety car and medical car are. We have two tailor-made, racetrack-tested cars in our portfolio that have proved their worth as the FIA Safety Car and FIA Medical Car. The new look also suits them extremely well,” says Philipp Schiemer, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

CrowdStrike has been a partner of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team since 2019. From this season, the partnership extends to the the commitment to the Mercedes safety car.
