Well Philip Morris is paying pretty penny for Mission Winnow (marlboro resemblance is obvious) and nobody seems to care except for Ferrari accountants.

You must have missed this: []

Yeap, I missed this. But I'm 99% nothing will happen. They're sponsoring Ducati MotoGP team as of this year as well.

I completely agree. One could imagine a small team being forced to alter their livery to race in Australia--if they did determine that the Mission Winnow nonsense was tobacco advertising in disguise and thus illegal there--but F1 is Ferrari for a lot of fans and I am sure they will find a way to let them do their thing and look the other way.

My point, however, was just that I am glad we don't have to watch Claire twist herself up in BS when the inevitable questions come about sponsors that promote inherently unhealthy products--about how Philip Morris or BAT is a tremendous company despite the evil they do and we're not even connected to the evil part anyway and its a technology-based relationship, yadda, yadda...

Claire really needs to be able to direct all her BS mojo into justifying the car looking pretty much like last year's stinker, not having it ready for testing, etc.,
