This year the drivers will not be required to wear "End-Racism" t-shirts but they will choose their own gesture to support inclusivity and other issues, F1 bosses confirmed there will be a moment of reflection before every race, drivers will remain free to take a knee.

According to Motorsport.com, an F1 spokesperson said: "The whole of Formula 1 is united in its support for #WeRaceAsOne and the drivers will all show their own support for the initiative ahead of the grand prix.

“The drivers will be free to show their commitment in their own way before the race and there will be no requirement for them to make a specific gesture.

"The important thing is all of them being together in full support of our initiatives on sustainability, diversity and inclusion and community.”

This year Formula One teamed up with the organization Global Citizen, a movement of engaged citizens who are using their collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030 and the "We Race As One" initiative will continue.

Stefano Domenicali, Formula 1 president and CEO:

“We are very excited to be partnering with the incredible team at Global Citizen, whose passion and delivery of lasting positive change is perfectly aligned with how we’re focused at Formula 1 to increase our positive impact on society, the environment, and our sport,"

"While our commitment to tackling issues of sustainability and diversity in our sport are important, it is our actions that we will be judged on,” 

“And this long-term partnership shows our commitment to deliver on our plans."

The 2021 Formula One season is set to start this week with the Bahrain Grand Prix at the Sakhir International Circuit.
