Ferrari has requested another change to its official team name ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix, reinstating Philip Morris International’s Mission Winnow slogan which it removed in Australia.
The team confirmed to RaceFans it has submitted a request to the FIA for a change of names. The FIA requires seven days’ notice for such a change under F1’s sporting regulations.
An updated entry list for the 2019 F1 season is expected in time for the next round of the championship. Ferrari’s latest change of names is likely to remain in effect for at least the next three races.
The team originally entered this year’s championship under the name Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow. However it dropped ‘Mission Winnow’ from its name ahead of the season-opening Australian Grand Prixafter health and media groups in the country said they were looking into whether the title might contravene restrictions on tobacco promotion.
