Formula 1 has unveiled its new logo following the conclusion of the 2017 season in Abu Dhabi, marking the start of a new era for the sport under Liberty Media.
Liberty completed its $8.8 billion takeover of F1 in January and has made widespread changes to the sport, with the introduction of a new logo for the 2018 season acting as the latest step to alter its image.
The new logo was unveiled on the podium after the race in Abu Dhabi, with F1’s social channels publishing a video to launch it.
INDIANAPOLIS — Before waving the green flag for the biggest race in the world, Boston sports fan Matt Damon received an introduction to a hallowed trophy from another pro sport.
The actor enjoyed a visit with the Stanley Cup, which his Bruins will be vying to capture when they battle the St. Louis Blues at 8 p.m. Monday night in Game 1 of the NHL’s Stanley Cup Finals.
“Am I allowed to touch it? Wow,” Damon said.
He then briefly tried to lift it before a quick admonishment that “You can only do it when you win.”
“Oh, that’s fair,” Damon said, adding. “Let’s go Bruins! Come on!”
