    Although I've never seen an example, I have heard over the years that rather than Marlboro appearing on the race cars, Ferrari is used on Marlboro cigarette packaging. Does anyone have any photos or links to an example of this? Thanks . . .

    Marlboro even had F1 cars come out of a big box of Marlboro cigarettes on the race track.

    Ferrari could partially circumvent the F1 ban on tobacco advertising by making the exhaust resemble a burning cigarette. No label of course. What about advertising E cigarettes, are they banned as well or suitable only for Formula E?

    Mclaren is sponsored by BAT. Mclaren has VUSE on their car F1 car and Indycar.

    Haven’t watched the video yet. I have no love for cigarette companies however I’ll say that Philip Morris sells a lot is food as well. People like to ignore that.
