F1 drivers' pre-race stance broadens out from 'End Racism'

Formula One drivers will gather again in a moment of unity on the starting grid pre-race this season but in support of wider social and environmental issues than a sole focus on anti-racism.

The sport this week announced international advocacy organisation Global Citizen as a charity partner of Formula One's WeRaceAsOne platform, which was launched last year with equality and diversity at its core.

"The whole of Formula One is united in its support for WeRaceAsOne and the drivers will all show their own support for the initiative ahead of the grand prix," a Formula One spokesman said.
