The shape of the logo has been amended, particularly the square, which has been replaced by a circle. The ".com" now includes the flag that resembles the nationality of each edition, and the font has been redesigned, providing a contemporary element.

The new "visual identity" was unveiled today with a presentation streamed live from the Pininfarina headquarters in Cambiano (Turin), where Paolo Pininfarina, President of Pininfarina SpA; Filippo Salza, President of Automotive at Motorsport Network; and Alessandro Lago, Director of Motor1.com Italy were present. During the digital event, broadcasted simultaneously across all Motor1.com channels globally (web, Facebook, and YouTube), a making-of documentary was shown, which highlighted the behind-the-scenes of this unique collaboration. The new logo was uploaded across all of the network’s platforms within minutes of the reveal.
