Mercedes will display a message of support for Michael Schumacher on the bodywork of their W05 car for the opening test in Jerez.

The car will display the words #KeepFightingMichael - which they revealed through a picture on Twitter. They used the social networking site to urge other users to spread the word by retweeting and using the hashtag in their own posts.

Schumacher remains in a French hospital following a skiing accident on December 29, and remains in a medically-induced coma despite his status being downgraded from critical to stable. The seven-time world champion finished his career with Mercedes in 2012 after coming out of retirement in 2010.
