Mercedes` new look car for the 2014 Formula One season will display a message of support for seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher, who remains in a coma following a serious skiing accident last month.

The bodywork of the W05 model will display the words "KeepFightingMichael," which has been used as a hashtag on the social networking site Twitter for fans to send their messages of support to the German.

Schumacher finished his Formula One career with Mercedes in 2012 after making a surprise return to the sport in 2010.

The 45-year-old has been in a medically-induced coma since suffering the accident when skiing off-piste in the French ski resort of Meribel on December 29.
