Formula One’s new owners appear to be considering a replacement for the current F1 logo.
Three trademark applications registered today with the European Union Intellectual Property reveal the possible changes to the current design. The applications were submitted by Formula One Licensing BV.
Version of the logo omitting the identifying text ‘Formula 1’ have also been submitted.
The submissions have been made under the Nice Classification for goods and services which is recognised by the World Intellectual Property Office. The trademark applications are now being examined.
The current F1 logo, which has gone unchanged for years, features a black ‘F’ and white ‘1’ emphasised by a red graphic.
