Feb.26 (GMM) 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 model 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, according to Bild newspaper.
