Why no Marriott Bonvoy logos on the halo and on the overalls?

The halo doesn't have any spoilers on it this weekend to reduce drag (believe the logo used to be on the halo spoiler elements).

Haven't seen any of the FP sessions, so don't know about the overalls.

Update:

If you look on the drivers' right shoulders, the logo is still there:

Fantastic Bottas interview here with some hot car candy window dressing to boot. Top three drivers? Hmmm...

Countdown to 91: 11 more victories ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I hope we can see Alonso in F1 after claiming triple crown by this may and Joins Ferrari. It helps Libery as well to get more viewers in F1. It should be very interesting to watch/see battle of Alonso Vs Hamilton instead of Hamilton vs Vettel. I hope still F1 fans love to see those two(ham and alonso) fight on track in F1.

It is all speculation. Lets wait and see.....
I'll take Vettel any day, thank you. F1 fans is a much more generalised term no?

I have just been reading that Mercedes are spending over 400 million pounds a year to win championships. That includes the engines.

Now what I would like to know is, does that figure include wages? Because if it does, then 400million a year is pretty good going when you consider they must employ over 1000 staff at Brackley and Brixworth. Play the 50+ Mill Ham and Bottas take between them.

Does anyone know anymore about whether they 400mill includes wages.

No where in that article does it say the engine is included.

All it says about the engine is that development costs are excluded.

but the last title-winning Mercedes car, the W09 in 2018, cost £320.6 million to develop ($422.3 million).

However, these costs don't include the development of an engine, which is a massive expense for Mercedes. If you add those costs to the total bill for the Silver Arrows, the average cost of developing a title-winning car for the Germans has been over £400 million or $500 million.
This to me reads, the car development cost Merc £320 million in 2018. This figure (£320) doesn't include the costs of the engine. If you add those costs (I assume engine costs) to the total bill for Mercedes, then the average costs of the car has been over £400 million.

From the Forbes site.

The Cost Of Winning The F1 Championship in 2018.
This is how much the championship-winner spent during the year before his victory.

Team: Mercedes Year: 2017 Costs: £320.6 milj.
This only covers the cost of running the team and developing car, not designing and producing the engines.
Over the five years that Mercedes won the title, its engine division had average annual costs of £145.5 million.
