Medical Car Driver historyEdit
During the 2000s, former Brazilian Grand Prix racer Alex Ribero drove the car. One time, he was lucky to escape with his life, after he opened the car door and Nick Heidfeld smashed into it as he was about to get out of the car.
Former Le Mans driver Jacques Tropenat drove the car until late 2008 after he caught an illness. Filling in his role for the rest of the year was first, Alexander Wurz in Singapore, then Sébastien Buemi for the last three races.
Since 2009, the driver of the car is van der Merwe, the 2003 British Formula 3 Champion.
