Rainbow stickers added to cars from Formula1
Before the start of the racing weekend in Spielberg in Formula 1, they presented an updated coloring of the safety car.

The same rainbow stickers appeared on a medical car.
“In addition to the official #WeRaceAsOne campaign, the Formula 1 safety car has a call for safe driving,” a press release said. - This is a reminder to the fans who watch the race on TV about the need to drive safely and carefully.
Berndt Maylander’s car also has the inscription #PurposeDriven on the FIA’s commitment to security, sustainable development, gender equality and diversity. ”
Formula 1 racers stand united in the fight against racism
Six Formula 1 pilots did not kneel before the start of the Austrian Grand Prix race in solidarity with the fight against racism and discrimination.
At the same time, all 20 pilots went to the starting grid in T-shirts with the slogan against racism.
Initially, it was expected that as a sign of solidarity, all pilots would kneel. But at a meeting of the Grand Prix Riders Association on Friday, five riders opposed the idea.
Earlier, Formula 1 announced that, as part of the #WeRaceAsOne project, an image of a rainbow as a symbol of unification during the crisis will appear on the fireballs of all teams in Austria. Also during the season, “F-1” will sell the checkered flag piece by piece and send all the proceeds to charity.
