Last week McLaren pledged its support to Formula 1's #WeRaceAsOne campaign, which aims to raise money for charities around the world who are fighting against COVID-19, while also recognising frontline workers who are tackling the pandemic

Ahead of this weekend's opening round of the revised 2020 Formula 1 season, McLaren has updated its livery to promote the campaign, while also carrying anti-racism messages on the cars of Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz.

In addition to a rainbow on the halo, the rainbow colours also feature on the sidepod of the MCL35. The car will also carry the 'End Racism' message on the halo.

The Woking outfit announced it will launch a range of special merchandise, with all profits going to the campaign.

Earlier Mercedes also revealed a different 2020 look, going for an all-black livery to support diversity.

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader Mateschitz shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
