It's time F1, F2 and GP3 will have self-title sponsor to increase money. IndyCar Series introduce the self-title sponsor was back in 2010 when IZOD was the first title sponsor, then in 2014 Verizon took over the title sponsor of IndyCar Serues. 3 top NASCAR series also have the title sponsor (Monster Energy with Cup, Xfinity and Camping World with Truck). In non-auto racing sports, Banco Santander currently title sponsor of Spanish Premier Division and also Telecom Italiana with Italian Premier Division league Serie A.

--- I really hope not. Every time I watch some national level motorsport on TV - tin tops or something similar - the constant advertising throughout the commentary drives me mad. The whole broadcast goes something like this:
"We're crossing down to the pit lane for an update from our Sunoco pit reporter"
"The view from the KFC dash camera will tell the whole story"
and on and on. They've got a sponsor deal for every little part of their coverage.

And then you switch back to F1 and the commentary is refreshingly free of these annoying product/company name drops. Yes of course there are company names on the circuit billboards and on the track, but when it comes to the race the commentary is clear and focussed on the racing, both on Channel 4 and on Sky. (I can't speak for non-English race commentary).

I hope it stays that way.

Isn't Heineken that already?
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

I think we might, but more in the way that the Premier League was sponsored by Barclays in the UK.
In 2007 I had the chance to go to a meet-and-greet with an F1 test driver. I decided not to as I didn't think he'd even amount to much...he was the BMW Sauber test driver and his name was Sebastian Vettel...

Well on the official F1 site, Heineken is just an ad on the website. The series isn't suddenly called "Heineken Formula One World Championship". Good ;)

I can image we will one day (sooner or later) end up in a UEFA Champions League like advertisement, where the last before, and the first ad after a part of the match is from the official sponsor (I think's it's Hyundai for them currently)

They should get a baby milk powder maker in, then it could be the Formula One Formula No1 world Championship.

Or yogurts... The For Muller Formula 1 world Championship.
