Safety Car in F1: A detailed breakdown and a look back at Abu Dhabi 2021 controversy
The safety car plays a vital role in Formula 1 races, ensuring the safety of the drivers and marshals on the track. It is responsible for controlling the race pace and neutralizing the competition in case of accidents or hazardous conditions. The safety car enters the track when there is a significant incident, such as crashes, heavy rain, or debris on the circuit, and leads the field until the danger is cleared. Its presence allows for a safer environment for everyone involved in the race and helps maintain fairness in the competition.
