Team Changes

Pre-season

  • The Benetton family elected to sell their under-performing team in favour of reverting to conventional sponsorship, entering into a title sponsorship deal with Arrows which saw the Arrows cars run in Benetton livery and the official team name changed to "Benetton Arrows Grand Prix International". Benetton chose to sponsor Arrows due to their Ford works engine status, a deal which was renewed for 1990 and saw the Leafield-based team have exclusive rights to the Ford HB engine. The Benetton team was sold to French Formula 3000 outfit Oreca, who entered the sport with financial backing from the Japanese logistics company Footwork. The new team would be called "Footwork Oreca" and run Ford DFR engines.
  • Zakspeed entered financial difficulty over the off-season after main sponsor Imperial Tobacco removed their sponsorship in the form of the West brand of cigarettes. The team elected to withdraw from Formula One to focus on their championship-winning World Touring Car Masters squad.
  • The paddock saw another new entrant in the form of Life Racing Engines, the eponymous team of Ernesto Vita, after the eccentric Italian failed to find any customers for his unconventional W12 engines.
  • Formula 3000 team Onyx Racing did apply to enter the season but had to cancel their entry plans after running into financial difficulty.
  • Another Formula 3000 team, Middlebridge Racing, entered the season under the Brabham name, bringing it back to the sport for the first time since 1986.

Calendar Changes

  • Japan held two Grands Prix for the first time with the addition of the Pacific Grand Prix at the newly constructed Autopolis circuit. The race would take place in the first half of the season.
  • The United States Grand Prix would open the season for the first time with the race moving to an early March slot. This was due to the sweltering heat of the mid-June climate in Phoenix.
  • The Mexican Grand Prix was moved from the end of the season to replace the United States Grand Prix's June slot.
  • To avoid cold weather, the Belgian and Italian Grands Prix were swapped, and both Grands Prix moved a few weeks earlier to late August-early September, displacing the Portuguese Grand Prix which would instead take place on the last weekend of September.
  • Following the Restoration of Independence of the Republic of Latvia on 4th May 1990 the future of the Soviet Grand Prix, held at the Bikernieki Circuit in the former Latvian SSR, was placed into doubt. With the new Latvian government not willing to host the race and the Soviet organisers unable to find a suitable replacement venue in time for the race's scheduled date of 12th August, the race was cancelled.
