Ferrari on Thursday unveiled a new logo for its Formula One team.

The current logo features the infamous 'barcode' that was recently removed from the F10 car, following suggestions it subliminally advertised Marlboro cigarettes.

But the new logo, to be used from 2011, remains red and white and is more angular than before, moving some observers to surmise that it reminds them even more of main sponsor Philip Morris' product.
