They have sponsorship logos for "Crowdstrike", which appears to be a company which uses red and white as branding. That'd be my best guess. That and they painted the Safety Car red for Mugello last year and it got a lot of love/memes for being the only chance of a Red Car leading the field that year.Why a red Mercedes-Benz? I like it but wondering why the change?
Safety car should not be allowed to be sponsored. How long before Crowdstrike put pressure on race control to bring it out as they haven't been seen on screen for a while?

How long until we see the Valkyrie and AMG One as Safety Cars? You won't hear drivers complaining they're too slow again
You won't. There are reasons they don't already use supercars/hypercars. On top of the general lack of practicality, reliability, need to use all weather tyres the main reason is because of the equipment they need to be fitted with. This was a showing inside the back of the Aston:
Not really gonna be able to stuff all that in the tiny things that pass for boot space in supercars.
Another reason is good old marketing. Mercedes and now Aston choose those cars because it's good marketing for people to buy them. You don't need to market hypercars and even if you did, you're only selling a tiny fraction of them.
