Mclaren erased Marlboro from historic Monaco GP picture

The McLaren team posted a photo on its Twitter profile on the occasion of the victory of Alain Prost at the 1984 Monaco GP which immediately took the stormy reactions of many F1 enthusiasts.

Why?

Well known logo of Marlboro cigarettes, a long-standing sponsor of the team, a brand of the tobacco concern Philip Morris, was removed from the historical photograph.

On the other hand, McLaren did not opt out of the Gitanes cigarettesĀ brand, which is also shown in the photo.
