Polish oil refiner and petrol retailer Orlen, is their primary / naming rights sponsor. I guess it is to do with that association.

Edit: Oops a bit late to the party. Saw the question and answered not realising it had already been answered over the page.

You could just as easily say 'delete petronas from Mercedes', or 'BWT from Racing Point'.
Ok - I think understand now. Obviously the subliminal McLaren Tobacco advertising went over my head on this occasion. Maybe I don't like this team any more than Ferrari after all.

It's the challenge of how do you advertise a tobacco company, without advertising tobacco?

more to the point, how do you advertising smoking without advertising wide spread death on a global level?

the whole world is fighting covid right now, so why not use this moment in time to promote other global public health crises like smoking?

really just a brilliant piece of marketing!

to each their own of course, but after almost 20 years of the advertising bans being in place, that some of the teams still do this is just, imo, silly and frankly amateurish.

Yes, and does it even work? Who would see these bizarre slogans and phrases and link them to fags anyway?

I'm struggling to see what's in it for the cigarette companies.

no where else to spend their money so might as well throw posh parties at exclusive events on the company dime in order to give old rich guys a chance to 'network' with beautiful young women would be my guess.

Thats true, I would have replied earlier, but I had to nip down the corner shop for some Marlboro lights.

Marlboro BnH jps etc could start making pencils.
A huge "MARLBORO" on the car and in small print under it "pencils".
We arent advertising smokes, we are advertising pencils which just happen to have same name and logo as the ciggies.
