F1 News. Mercedes will run their car with a special red halo in tribute to Niki Lauda over the rest of the Monaco GP weekend. Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, meanwhile, is sporting a Lauda tribute crash helmet and says "maybe it's nice to take him around for a couple of final laps around Monaco", a venue the Austrian legend won at twice during his career at the Scuderia. Mercedes are known as the Silver Arrows, but the addition of red on the halo head protection device reflects the red cap that was Lauda's trademark. The halo carries the message: 'Niki we miss you'. Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton has thanked fans for their well-wishes after Mercedes lost their chairman, and the Englishman a close confidant and friend.
