Racing Point Formula 1 team unveils 2019 livery and title sponsor

The Racing Point Formula 1 team has unveiled its 2019 livery and a new title sponsorship with SportPesa.

Racing Point will race in a largely pink livery that reflects ongoing support from BWT, which started sponsoring the team in 2017 in its Force India days, with blue flashes.

To mark its new title sponsorship with African sports betting company SportPesa, the company’s logo appears with blue and white branding on the front wing, engine cover and rear wing.

The team will also be formally branded SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team.

Racing Point assumed control of the ex-Force India team and joined the F1 grid as a new entry from last year’s Belgian Grand Prix.

It planned a new identity for this season, and was understood to have held discussions over reviving the Brabham and Lola names, but has settled on continuing with Racing Point.

At the team’s season launch in Canada, Otmar Szafnauer explained: “We’ve all come to the conclusion to that basically we’re a team of racers and there’s nothing wrong with Racing Point and it encompasses who we are.

“We thought it was an appropriate name, let’s make it wonderful and let’s take that name and give it some history and time and some heritage.

“Racing Point is what we got to. I think it’s appropriate and thanks to our new title partner SportPesa they are part of the name too.”
