Alex Wurz, the president of the Grand Prix Drivers Association, is happy with the fact that every single driver on the 2018 grid is a member of the institution.

The unity, which was achieved at the end of last year, will allow for drivers' voices to be heard in the future as they work towards the continual improvement of safety in Formula 1.

"We are all together in a single boat and must think together about Formula 1, even if there are many political camps in this sport," said Wurz

"This is very important, as all the drivers - and 100pc of the drivers are GPDA members - have said that we must be fully committed to the sport rather than just as individuals.

With the sport embarking on a new dawn from 2021, when a new regulation platform is introduced, Wurz underlines the need for representation among the drivers, as new challenges emerge.

"F1 is entering a period of evolution, change and perhaps even a degree of turmoil," said the Austrian last year.

"All the drivers recognise that they must be united and represented, in order to face that challenge and prevent any politics or fights for power from ultimately compromising on-track performance.

"The drivers believe unity is fundamental for the sport's success."
