The sport as a medium for far bigger issues regarding society: this is the message that Liberty Media wants to convey through the #WeRaceAsOne campaign to be set for the first Grand Prix of the 2020 bizzare season.

The rainbow simbolizes both the colors of all the teams and the universal sign of the gender, climate and race contemporary challenges; rainbows will be displayed all along the Red Bull Ring circuit and among cars as a thanskgiving towards the entire medical staff who fought the COVID-19 too. Renault, McLaren and Alfa Romeo were the first teams to share the communication to their fans.

The Cavallino squad is ready to tackle the Mugello circuit for the first test after the lockdown.

While it is an important moment for the Formula 1 community it is also a time to recognise the issues that are bigger than any one sport or country.

It will also be a platform for Formula 1 to come together and achieve results against the most important issues facing us as a sport and the world. That is why at our first race in Austria Formula 1 will stand united to say loud and clear that racism must end.

FIA president, Jean Todt, added his toughts too:

The “New Deal” I propose for motor sport in the context of COVID-19 pandemic means laying the foundations for the recovery and a sustainable future for Formula 1 and other disciplines. Importantly, it shall also harness the positive contribution motor sport brings to society, covering all sectors from health, safety, economy, environment, education, inclusion and diversity. The FIA is guided by the Fundamental Principles of its Statutes, including the fight against any form of discrimination and notably on account of skin colour, gender, religion, ethnic or social origin. We must promote diversity in motor sport.
