The 2021 Formula 1 season, and the first grand prix in Jeddah in particular, has had its fair share of safety cars. This may completely coincidentally correlate with the debut season of a certain Haas driver, but either way, we’ve been treated to seeing the rather cool Aston Martin DBX and Vantage a few times this year, as Aston Martin has shared safety car responsibilities with Mercedes.
You’d imagine that the safety car, or pace car, has always been a fast, reliable and safe car, but sometimes series organisers like to let their hair down and just go for the crowd pleaser… or the downright bizarre.
So, we’ve had a look through the racing archives and found what we consider to be the 11 coolest safety cars. Disclaimer: these are very much based on our opinion, as you are no doubt about to see… They’re not all that cool.
