Formula One today retracted an order against beverage company Speed Drinks Pte after the distributor agreed to stop selling its F1 Racing Energy drink in Singapore.

The 'F1 Racing Energy Drink' can features a circled checkered "F1" logo and the slogan "Start Your Engine." Formula One licensing officials accused Speed Drinks of passing the logo and slogan off as championship's own.
