Is the safety car the most prominent in the race?

I thought when I went to see the WEC held last year at the Fuji Speedway, but the safety car was the most prominent than any car. Well, the race at that time was an unusual development, with the influence of heavy fog due to bad weather, the red flag interruption once, the race resuming at the safety car leaders three times. Because there were many scenes in which safety cars were active more than usual, it is unnecessary.

Even though we were watching from the lounge, every time the race was interrupted, people like a motor journalist group next door

"No, really this time WEC, R8 is the most prominent, Audi is a really good advertisement!"

He was smiling. In fact WEC CEO Gérard Neuve also says that "safety cars are part of the" show ".

Is the medical car Panamera?

When Porsche withdrew from WEC and was announced last year, a lot of news such as "Porsche fan disappointment" and "shake to the industry" flowed, but as Porsche became a WEC official car supplier, we can have fun watching WEC I wonder if there are many people.
Also,In addition to the two safety cars released this time, it seems to supply a total of 16 support cars, including medical cars, to the series.
By the way, last year 's WEC, the medical car was Panamera, so I got excited a lot and took a picture, (It ↓)
