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. Idol, John McCaw Jr., Michael de Picciotto and Silas Chou named Racing Point UK Ltd. and led by Lawrence Stroll, the father of former Williams driver Lance Stroll, purchased the assets of the then-existing Sahara Force India F1 team.

The 2019 season saw the team branded as SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team, as the new car, the Racing Point RP19 was announced in Toronto, Canada. The car will be driven in the 2019 Formula One World Championship by Sergio Pérez and Lance Stroll and will debut at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix.
