Following the 'Mission Winnow' controversy, Ferrari have revealed a new livery design ahead of the Formula One opening Australian Grand Prix.
Retaining a relationship with cigarette brand Marlboro despite the ban on tobacco sponsorship in Grand Prix racing since the 2002 Formula One season, controversially Ferrari began 2019 with a fresh new livery design on their 2019 SF90 challenger, complete with new Phillip Morris initiative 'Mission Winnow' sponsorship - leading to many complaints that tobacco associations have returned to the sport in spite of the blanket ban remaining in place for the new season.
Although the Mission Winnow deal is frankly confusing (I still don't actually know what it is), Ferrari have eventually acquiesced to the calls for the removal of the branding, and have turned out on social media with a brand new and much more attractive design on the SF90 2019 Formula One challenger.
The new livery has been designed to celebrate 90 years of the Ferrari brand, and is the first in a series of special tributes the Italian outfit plan to make over the course of the coming season.
