David Coulthard will wear special helmet colours in Japan this weekend in honour of fellow Scot and friend Colin McRae.

Former rally world champion McRae, who was 39, died earlier this month along with his five year old Johnny and two family friends when the helicopter he was piloting crashed in Scotland.

F1 veteran Coulthard announced on Monday that he will wear McRae’s colours instead of his usual blue and white helmet design at Fuji.

“I’m also hoping to get the other drivers to sign it and give it to the McRae family as a show of respect from formula one,” he wrote in his column for ITV.
