Mercedes starts Formula 1 season with black livery in the fight against racism!

Lewis Hamilton has made himself heard a lot in the racism debate in recent weeks and has already secured support from Formula 1. In addition to the #WeRaceAsOne project, Mercedes now also supports the initiatives of their star driver and presents a new livery for 2020.

In recent months, the racism debate has been the topic of discussion all over the world. Since the death of George Floyd in America, the fight against racism has increased all over the world and Hamilton made a clear statement. He wanted Formula 1 to make itself heard and to help in the fight against racism.

Mercedes takes on the fight against racism

Formula 1 responded. Not only did many drivers and teams support Hamilton on social media, but F1 itself also brought a new project into life, fighting inequality and racism in sport. In addition, Chase Carey himself donated one million dollars to create more chances for a career in Formula 1.

However, now Mercedes has also made a step. They will present a new black livery on Monday, with which they will fight against racism. ''Introducing our new 2020 livery. A promise to improve the diversity of our team and our sport and a signal that the team is committed to fighting racism and discrimination in all its forms", is the statement of Mercedes.
