If you are referring to Mercedes' car naming, their chassis numbers for all their cars always starting with a W (from Wagen I presume) or for instance a S for stationewagen. I myself had a W115 and a S204 for a while (a '71 200d and a '09 C320CDI-AMG)
I know they have always been named like that. I was just pointing out the Chassis name doesn't have to contain the team name.
Oh but the rule is that you have to race your own chassis. So it hasn't got to have the name, but you must be the manufacturer. This was the case with FI last year. The team had to be named FI because the manufacturer was FI, not Racing Point. That the car was named VJM didn't matter.
This year the team will be called Alfa Romeo, so a little plaque in the car must read "manufactured by Alfa Romeo"
