Ferrari officially changed the name of the team F-1March 4, 2019
In the application list of the FIA for the new season of Formula 1, the team from Maranello is already listed as Scuderia Ferrari, not Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow. Perhaps such a change is associated with charges of promoting smoking.
Mission Winnow is a company that belongs to Philip Morris International Tobacco Corporation (PMI). Her logo appeared on the Ferrari car livery last fall. However, despite the fact that the name of the company was removed from the name of the team cooperation between them continues. In addition, it does not involve the promotion of tobacco products, which was announced from the very beginning.
It is possible that in the first stage of the championship in Melbourne, something will change again, or returned, for example. It remains only to wait for the start on March 17.
Changes have occurred in other teams. For example, the British in connection with the new sponsor is now referred to as ROKiT Williams. The same with the Racing Point – SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team. In the latter team, by the way, the engines are officially called BWT Mercedes, since BWT has been working closely with the former Force India for the last few seasons.
