Ferrari has confirmed a special 90th anniversary celebration theme will replace its Mission Winnow sponsorship branding at the 2019 Formula 1 opener in Australia.

The Italian squad has been forced to drop its Philip Morris International-backed Mission Winnow logos from its car livery and team kit, which the team expects to be a temporary measure, with Australian tobacco advertising laws putting the team under scrutiny for the 2019 opener in Melbourne.

Ferrari has announced a 90th anniversary celebration will be run on its SF90 F1 car livery, drivers’ race suits and the team’s track equipment to mark 90 years of Scuderia Ferrari since its founding in Trento and Trieste.

It is believed the Mission Winnow logos will return from the second round of the 2019 F1 world championship in Bahrain.

The logos were used on the teams’ F1 livery and team kit during its car launch and pre-season testing in Spain but has since drawn close inspection over concerns the campaign breaks tobacco and product advertising laws.
