Ferrari to remove Mission Winnow branding once more

Ferrari has confirmed that it will remove its Mission Winnow branding from the SF90 at the upcoming races in Canada and France.

At the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, the Mission Winnow logos and name disappeared from the Ferrari car, as the Australian health department investigated the motives around the sponsor.

Misson Winnow is an initiative launched by Philip Morris International, and it sparked immediate suspicion when the new livery was launched last year in Japan, as questions were raised on whether or not it breached laws banning tobacco advertising.

Ferrari therefore opted to remove any Mission Winnow logos heading into the next two races, while 'Mission Winnow' was also removed from its team name.

The '90 years' branding that appeared in Australia will be back for the next two races, as Ferrari celebrates its anniversary.

The chassis name pays homage to the company's anniversary. Ferrari is yet to win a race in 2019, having bagged its best result of the year last time out in Monaco.

  • Ridiculous on a both accounts. Ferrari for insisting on doing shameless circumventing of the rules to still promote Marlboro. The rules for being highly hypocritical and banning tobacco but not alcohol. They should allow both. People dumb enough to buy tobacco should be able to subsidize my favourite sport of they want to

    • They still do, looking at the money Marlboro and BAT give to F1 teams. I just don't think they should be allowed to put stickers on the cars. I'm leaning towards booze brands not being OK in my book either, considering the irony of having cars driving around with booze logos, sometimes booze logos saying "don't use out products".

    I think its wise to remove because its only putting more pressure on the whole team. The harder they try to win the more silly mistakes made on race day. They simply not living up to it mission impossible right as far as I am concern
