A red and white smoking livery is introduced to F1

Philip Morris, which announced today an extension of its sponsorship deal with Ferrari, introduced its first Marlboro liveried car back in 1972 when it sponsored the works BRM team.

Seen here is Peter Gethin, breaking out of a giant cigarette box, as the British team's P160B is introduced at the Circuit Paul Ricard before the 1971 season.

Marlboro's presence loomed large in the F1 paddock in the seventies, its colors raced by several teams and countless drivers.

The last F1 car to race with a full Marlboro livery was the McLaren MP4/11 in 1996.
