about Racing Point

Racing Point F1 Team competing as SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team is a Formula One racing team established from the Racing Point Force India team at the beginning of the 2019 season. The team uses the constructor name "Racing Point" and competes under a British licence and is based at Silverstone, United Kingdom.

The team was formed in February 2019 from the former team Racing Point Force India. In August 2018 a consortium of investors which included André Desmarais, Jonathan Dudman, John D.
