champagne & motor racing

We all know that motor racing is a highly subsidised sport, with manufacturers of glam products (?) willing to pay teams sponsorship money, in return for their name of logo somewhere visible to the thousands of spectators around the world....
One that comes to mind is "Marlborough" splashed on the rear wing of certain cars !  (glam product? ? ?)
Without looking it up, or searching google, does anyone know the name of the Chateau that supplies the Champagne for the winning rostrum spray fight scene, ?

When was the last time you watched F1? Marlborough have not been in F1 for about a decade.
Edit: Marlborough livery have not been on the cars but just remember that they Barcode and other badges were on outfits and cars.

I know that Marlborough has not been seen since certain advertising for cigarettes has been banned..... I was making a point, that it was so "obvious" but you do not see/notice the name of the champagne being used.....

I went straight to the Mumm's site. So is this classed as looking it up?
I know which Champagne is used but haven't a clue which cigarettes sponsorship deals are still in place.

Re: champagne & motor racing

I wonder if a particular brand is chosen specifically for its 'sprayability'
