David Coulthard will pay homage to the late Colin McRae at this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix, wearing a helmet painted with the former World Rally Champion's colors.
McRae, who won the WRC title in 1995 with Subaru, was killed earlier this month in a helicopter crash.
Red Bull driver Coulthard, a friend of McRae's and his family, said he will also try to get the Formula One community to show its respects to the Scot.
"I will race with a helmet painted in Colin McRae's colours at the Japanese Grand Prix. I'm also hoping to get the other drivers to sign it and give it to the McRae family as a show of respect from Formula One", wrote Coulthard in his column for ITV-F1.
"I obviously had a friendship with him and there are a number of other guys in F1 that knew him as well.
"I know that there was a high regard for his driving skill among us. He was such an understated yet fantastically talented individual."
