Without real surprise, the Ducati team will not be able to put the logo Winnow Mission »From his sponsor Philip Morris at the next MotoGP of Le Mans. The reason ? The ban on advertising in France of tobacco products including heated tobacco which Philip Morris is promoting ... The Grand Prix de France will therefore allow Andrea Dovizioso et Danilo Petrucci to display a new personalized decoration on the fairings of their official Desmosedici.
It has been many years since Philip Morris is no longer allowed to display the name of Marlboro on the refit of Ducati official. But the tobacco company has remained faithful to the Italian brand, a partnership that fails to offer visibility allows it to tax and bring its VIP customers live an exceptional experience on the Grand Prix. But the American group had managed to make a comeback on the refit of GP19 of the official team this year, through its concept a little vague " Winnow Mission« .
A term that refers to the program launched by PMI for " transform the tobacco industry ". And even if, despite our efforts, we did not quite understand what exactly it was, it appears that the French law has forbidden the Ducati team to promote it at Le Mans. Andrea Dovizioso et Danilo Petrucci have therefore received the green light to choose themselves the decoration of their motorcycle in France.
« It's nice to be able to bring its touch to the decoration, to be able to put my own big logo like that. This is something we have never done before. I can not wait to see the final result. » said Andrea Dovizioso.
