Champagne axed from podium ahead of new F1 season and replaced with Italian sparkling wine called FERRARI

FERRARI are guaranteed to be on the podium at EVERY F1 race this season. It means Ferrari, rather than Champagne, will be served on the podium at the end of F1 races – even if Charles Leclerc or Carlos Sainz don’t make the top three. The F1 podium ceremony has traditionally used Champagne but it has not always used plonk from the French region. After several decades of using Moet and Mumm champagne after races, sparkling wine producer Chandon was used on the podium from the start of 2016. But during the 2017 season, F1 did a deal with champagne producer Carbon while non alcoholic rose water is served on podiums where booze is banned.
