F1 2019: Racing Point in the pink for ambitious new era

  • Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez observe the Racing Point car for 2019

The team formerly known as Force India but later christened Racing Point pulled the covers off their 2019 challenger at the Canadian International Autoshow in Toronto...

However having been unable to obtain the rights to use a suitable heritage name, the team has kept the Racing Point title.

Stroll, 20, and his Mexican teammate wore pink Racing Point uniforms that match the car's colours as they talked about the upcoming season.

Force India finished fourth in the constructors' championship in both 2016 and 2017 and would have beaten Renault to fourth a year ago as well had they not been forced to start from zero points again at the Belgian Grand Prix because they were a new legal entity following Stroll's takeover.

Racing Point - born past year out of the trials and tribulations of Force India - has retained its signature pink livery as Austrian partner BWT remains with the team, but the outfit has also brought on board the corporate blue color of sports betting company Sports Pesa, its prominent new title sponsor. We all want to start understanding the various aspects of the car's performance; understanding all the mechanical and aerodynamic improvements of the auto, our new power unit and make sure our reliability is sound. "Now is the time to show what we can really do, now that we have all the tools in place".

"We want to be fighting for podiums and aim for a strong top-four finish".

However, the team have gained new sponsorship with SportPesa whose blue logo as part of a title sponsorship has helped freshen up the team's livery for the 2019 season.

"The targets are extreme", said Perez at the launch. "We are aiming for at least fourth again this season".

"And we've all come to the conclusion that basically we're a term of racers and there's nothing wrong with - and actually it encompasses who we are - Racing Point".

"The pink. I believe in the two years, has become iconic", said team chief Otmar Szafnauer.

The Racing Point Force India squad overhauled Williams, Sauber and Toro Rosso to place seventh in the standings, despite only scoring from Belgium onwards.
