The silver F1 safety car this year will be the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
The unique 571 horse power gull-wing supercar, with its doors hinged on the roof that fold upwards, sped to formula one fame recently when Michael Schumacher drove a red SLS on the ceiling of a tunnel in a new TV commercial.
German Bernd Maylander, 38, will again be the full time safety car driver in 2010.
The Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Estate remains the official medical car.
