McLaren F1 team reveals tweaked #WeRaceAsOne livery with 'End Racism' messaging

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 and encouraging more diversity within the championship.

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 Jr.

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.

OPINION: The top down-change to help address racism in F1's society

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

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