F1 reveals special logo to commemorate the 70th official F1 season
Just as 2020 rolled in, so did a new logo for the upcoming 2020 season!
Just after we welcomed in 2020 in the UK, F1 announced that they would be using a special logo to celebrate 70 years since the first season in F1.
Since the first FIA F1 season: 33 drivers have become world champion, 108 have won Grands Prix and 764 drivers and over 150 teams have taken part. That is a lot of heritage in what has been an exciting sport.
As F1 fans around the globe gear up for the 2020 F1 season - there is plenty to be excited about. Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc have been proven as the next superstars of F1 and the uprising talent of George Russel and both Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris assures the loyal fanbase that there is not shortage of exciting drivers to come in 2020.
A seemingly resurgent Ferrari and a determined Red Bull pairing looks to make the 2020 F1 season worth watching.
2020 could also be the year that Lewis Hamilton might be able to equal the great Michael Schumacher by clinching his seventh world title.
Hamilton is only seven wins away from Schumacher's record of 91 wins.
Will Red Bull and Ferrari put up a fight? Will there be conflict within Mercedes between Bottas and Hamilton? Or will it be a stroll in the park for the Brit? Only time will uncover these questions.
Why have they chosen this design?
F1 wanted to 'honour the tracks' the drivers battle wheel to wheel on so they have said that "the two lines in the new logo and interlinked design allow this mark to honour those tracks."
Another reason to why they have chosen this design is so that sponsors and teams could personalise this logo to provide a more unique experience on the seventieth F1 season.
F1 have also designed a worded logo too. This is what they had to say: "Our past fuels our future and the new logo celebrates a milestone while also looking ahead. Celebrating 70 years is about making the past part of the present, while our sport looks to the future, which it does with confidence and pride."
