In the wake of the controversy over the barcode design that the team had adopted for use in the early part of this season, Ferrari has unveiled a new logo that will feature on the team’s car and branding from the start of next season.

New Ferrari F1 Logo The red-and-white decal will formally be adopted as the team’s official subliminal Marlboro substitute racing logo, with team boss Stefano Domenical confirming that Philip Morris tobacco would still retain title sponsorship and naming rights of Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro for next year.

Ferrari and Philip Morris agreed to the removal of the controversial barcode logos from its cars earlier this season after suggestions from some quarters, reluctantly conceded strongly rejected by the team, that the barcode was a form of subliminal advertising.

Do we like the logo?
