Friday 13 didn’t leave Mercedes red-faced as they dominated free practice at Formula One’s season-opening Australian Grand Prix, but they did emit a crimson complexion of a different kind as they showed their support for Red Nose Day.

Last season’s F1 World Constructors’ Championship champions wore red noses in support for the British charity.

Defending World Champion Lewis Hamilton was the only one from the party to not be seen wearing a red nose, but the British racer did wear a T-shirt backing.

Captioned with the slogan ‘I think I may be the voice of a generation,’ the 30-year-old is all smiles as he poses for photographs with team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Rosberg was also pictured wearing a T-shirt, as well as a red nose, for the biennel telethon charity event which takes over the BBC on Friday evening.

And Friday’s F1 practice proved a good one for the German as he set the fastest lap of 1:27.697secs in the second session on a glorious day at Albert Park, topping Hamilton by one tenth of a second.

Rosberg was also quickest in the first session, his best time of 1:29.557secs edging Hamilton as the constructors’ champions carried their ominous form from winter testing onto the track.
