As the first Formula 1 race of 2020 approaches this weekend, the Mercedes-AMG team have announced a new car livery.

The organisation commits to "fighting racism and discrimination in all its forms" as their ranks feature only 3% of people identified from minority groups and 12% women.

In a press release, the team stated: "the Black Lives Matter movement has shone a searching light on how much we need new measures and actions in the fight against racism and all forms of discrimination".
