Manor has tweaked its livery to feature the American flag's stars and stripes for this weekend's United States Grand Prix.

American driver Alexander Rossi will drive this weekend for the team, his third appearance for Manor after replacing Roberto Merhi in Singapore and Japan. Rossi's elevation to a senior seat has seen him become the first American to drive in Formula One since Scott Speed at the 2007 European Grand Prix.

The change in livery caught the attention of world champions Mercedes, who will supply Manor with engines from next season.
