Ferrari reveals replacement livery for Australian Grand Prix

Ferrari will run an altered livery after Australian authorities revealed it would be investigating Ferrari for an advertising breach should the original livery be used.

Having been forced to remove the Philip Morris-linked logos from their car due to tobacco advertising links, Ferrari will instead run a celebratory livery inspired by the team's 90th anniversary which it is celebrating this season.

In a statement released by the team, the cars will have logos on the car that denote the team's anniversary for the race in Melbourne.

"2019 is a special year for Scuderia Ferrari, as it was 90 years ago, in 1929, that the company was established by Enzo Ferrari and his associates.

"The name of this year’s car, the SF90, is already a celebration of this anniversary and, on top of that, the Maranello marque has decided to honour this achievement in an even more evident manner in Melbourne.

"Over the Australian Grand Prix weekend, the SF90 livery, the drivers’ race suits and some of the team’s track equipment will bear the logo celebrating 90 years of the Scuderia."

The original Mission Winnow livery will return for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
