No more Marlboro , West, Mild Seven , Benson and Hedges. The tobacco companies have been banished from the world of formula one. The billions of dollars they pumped into the sport will be thoroughly missed. Moreover , some cars might even have to change their colours to incorporate new sponsors. Like the Renault team which was being sponsored by the Mild Seven group , The characteristic blue tint on the cars might be replaced by an orange paint job as their new sponsors are ING Vyasya. Whatever be their colour , 2006 was indeed one of the most eventful years for the world of Formula One.
