Racing Point F1 Team competing as SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team is the team that Racing Point UK has entered into the 2019 Formula One World Championship, using the constructor name of "Racing Point". The team, based in Silverstone, United Kingdom, competes under a British licence.

The team was renamed in February 2019 from Racing Point Force India F1 Team, which used the constructor name of Racing Point Force India for the 2018 season. The 2019 season also saw the team branded as "SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team", acknowledging lead sponsor SportPesa, a sports betting company from Kenya. The team's car for the 2019 season, the Racing Point RP19, was announced in Toronto, Canada.[4] The team's drivers for the 2019 season are Sergio Pérez and Lance Stroll, with the team making its racing debut at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix.

History

Background

In December 2018, the FIA's first release of the 2019 Formula One World Championship entry list confirmed that Racing Point UK intended to drop "Force India" from their team's name, and would contest the 2019 championship with their team renamed as "Racing Point F1 Team".[5]

2019 season

Racing Point confirmed in November 2018 that Lance Stroll and Sergio Pérez would be the two drivers for the 2019 season.[6]

2020 season

At the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix, it was confirmed that Stroll has been re-signed for 2020 and Pérez has been signed until 2022. Pérez is set to now spend at least 8 consecutive seasons with the team in total (since 2014).

I've been working together with this group of people for a long time now and they have become my second family.

Together we have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success and we share the same passion for racing. I have been impressed with the direction the team has taken over the last 12 months and that gives me confidence for the future.

I believe the best times are still to come and I look forward to celebrating plenty of podiums in the years ahead.

— Pérez commenting on why he signed a 3 year deal with Racing Point

Over the last six years we have seen Sergio become a very complete driver with excellent qualifying speed and exceptional race craft. He believes in the long-term vision of this project and getting his commitment until the end of 2022 gives us valuable consistency going forward. As the team continues to grow and develop, it's important to have a driver with Sergio's level of experience, especially with new regulations on the horizon.

— Otmar Szafnauer, Team Principal of Racing Point, explained why he signed Pérez until the end of 2022

Stroll "will likely have a seat at the team for as long as he is a Formula 1 driver." This is because Lance Stroll's father, Lawrence Stroll, leads the consortium that owns the team.[7]
