The choice, already anticipated in the course of the past championship, was definitively unveiled this morning during the presentation of the new W13, the car with which the Anglo-German team wants to confirm itself on the constructors throne – after eight consecutive successes – and take back the scepter also among the drivers, after the world championship won by Max Verstappen of Red Bull.
“The black livery was a clear intent and a clear demonstration of our goal to become a more diverse and inclusive team“, Team principal and co-owner Toto Wolff began, adding:”So that color has become part of our DNA, but the silver color of the Silver Arrows is part of our history. As a team we were born as Frecce d’Argento and slowly we diversified, becoming inclusive and embracing black and therefore from now on our colors will be silver and black “. At the same time, Mercedes confirmed its intention to continue recruiting the best people available, without any connection with ethnicity, sex, religion or personal orientation, inspiring individuals from all over the world to aim for an engineering, technological or motorsport career. The dedicated program, called ‘Accelerate 25’ exceeded the 25% target of new hires from underrepresented groups.
