Ferrari have announced an extension of their sponsorship deal with Marlboro.
The deal, which was set to expire at the end of this season, has been extended for a further four years.
Under the arrangement with Philip Morris International, Ferrari race under the official title of Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro, despite tobacco advertising being banned in the sport.
Last year Ferrari changed their livery following accusations that the design was intended to draw attention to their association with Marlboro.
They revealed a new team logo ahead of this year’s season which is now displayed on the cars.
Marlboro has sponsored several different teams since first appearing in the sport in 1971.
Ferrari also announced an extension of their partnership with Puma before the Canadian Grand Prix.
