Mercedes Formula 1 team introduced the black livery for its formula 1 cars back in 2020. The cars were entirely black as the choice was motivated by Lewis Hamilton’s anti-racism messages.
The team however, chose to move on with the black livery over to 2021 but Hamilton insists he would love it if the silver livery made a return.
The seven-time world champion said he has nothing against the silver livery when he was asked his opinion about the issue, “I don’t really have an opinion on it,” he told Motorsport.com. “Originally it was the silver arrows.”
“When I asked for the car to be black for symbolism last year, and what our future plans are in terms of diversity, I didn’t expect it to stay for so long. It’s great that we kept it for another season,” he explained.
“If it comes back that would be a nice change. It doesn’t stop us from making changes internally, we continue to make a strong case for diversity,” Hamilton said.
