Mercedes paint halo red for Monaco Grand Prix to honor Niki Lauda

Mercedes have revealed a special livery they will run this weekend as a tribute to the passing of the late Niki Lauda, as the Silver Arrows have painted their halo's red in remembrance of the Austrian F1 legend.

The German team have already honoured their non-executive chairman with special details on their liveries during Thursday's practice, with "Danke Niki" (Thank you Niki) on the nose of the W10 as well as a red star on the back of the car.

Now that more time has passed since the sudden news of Lauda's death earlier this week, Mercedes have revealed a new, red halo on the W10 to commemorate the three-time champion, who was instrumental in Mercedes' success in recent years.

Mercedes aren't the only team to run a special livery, with Haas, McLaren and Ferrari among other teams also making a tribute to the legend.

The red halo can be seen in the picture at the top of this article.
