When the delayed Formula 1 season kicks off in Austria this weekend, world champion Lewis Hamilton and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas will not be driving a silver car, but a black car.

The racing team of the drivers decided to change the colors of the cars as a protest against racism and discrimination. The text will read End Racism.

The drivers will also wear black racing clothing and they will adapt the design of their helmet. “This is a promise to enhance diversity within our team and our sport, and a signal of our commitment to fight racism and discrimination in any form,” said Mercedes.

Hamilton and Bottas will take to the track for the first time on Friday with this new color scheme. Then the first training sessions are for the Grand Prix of Austria.

Champion

Hamilton has been actively involved in the debate on racism, discrimination and diversity in recent weeks. The six-time world champion called on his colleagues to speak out. “I speak from my heart when I plead for change,” said the 35-year-old Briton.
