The Australian Grand Prix of 2020 in Victoria will pass laws that prevent teams from placing hidden advertisements for tobacco manufacturers like British American Tobacco (BAT) and Philip Morris this season.

This year, Ferrari and McLaren had to remove the logos of subsidiary brands of tobacco sponsors in Melbourne due to the risk of lawsuits by the authorities, and now in Australia they want to ban absolutely any association with tobacco companies and their products.

Jenny Mikekos, Minister of Health: “Victoria has always been among the leaders in the fight against tobacco advertising, and we want to maintain this leadership. Changes to the law will prevent the tobacco giants from misleading and threatening the lives of Victorians. ”
