Mercedes have teased their car for the upcoming 2021 Formula 1 season, and it seems they will keep with the all-black livery they adopted last year.

Mercedes changed their livery to all-black last year to support the social justice movement.

The Silver Arrows, led by Lewis Hamilton, have been vocal in their support of the movement and refused to shy away from the issue this year.

And it seems they are going to keep with the same design theme this year as they search for an eighth Constructors’ Championship in a row.

In a post on their social media page this week, Mercedes teased their new-look car for the 2021 season after fans pleaded with them to unveil the new livery.

In the photo, the car is mostly black with a slight hint of silver at the back.

A lime green stripe down the side and a dash of red above the halo are the only other two hints of colour in what is a mostly-black look.

The tease comes just days after Hamilton reiterated his desire to support social justice issues – including the Black Lives Matter movement.

Last year, Mercedes adopted the all-black livery to support the movement, and Hamilton spoke this week about his desire to keep calling for change.

He said: “Last year some of us took a knee in support of equality which I am proud of.

“My question is, what’s next?

“The inequities within our sport and within our world persist. Change is still needed.

“We must keep pushing to hold ourselves and others accountable.

“We have to keep striving for equality for all, in order to continue to see true and lasting change in our world.

“As long as I have air in my lungs, I will continue to fight for change in everything I do.

“I will work to create pathways and opportunities for kids of colour, within sciences, engineering and creative disciplines.

“Let’s keep pushing.”
