Racing Point retains pink look for 2020

Racing Point

Racing Point has retained its pink colour scheme for the upcoming Formula One season.

Racing Point switched to an all-pink livery in 2018 to mark its partnership with BWT, which has extended into a title partnership for the upcoming campaign. This has been marked with BWT taking a prominent space on the side of the car in place of former sponsor SportsPesa.

This will be the team's final season under its current name -- next year it will become Aston Martin, after Racing Point owner Lawrence Stroll purchased a 20 percent stake in the famous British manufacturer in January. It raced as Force India until Stroll's purchase of the team mid-way through the 2018 season.

Stroll's son Lance remains at the team for a second year alongside Mexican driver Sergio Perez.

The team wants to start the decade as the best team in Formula One's midfield.

"This year we want to be a strong fourth," team boss Otmar Szafnauer said. "We want to be closer to the top three that we've ever been in the past, and we want to be top of the midfield.

"Last year was a bit of a difficult year for us, we ended up seventh, on the back end of the midfield grid, but this year we want to take a step up and be where we normally can be.

"In order to do that, we've had to do a lot of development work over the winter.It's not that easy, the competition is getting stronger: McLaren did a really good job last year; Renault, with the might of the motor company behind them and the 650-plus employees that they have, aren't going to be easy [to beat].

"Even Toro Rosso [AlphaTauri] with the resurgence of the Honda powertrain did really well towards the end of last year.

"But I'm confident that the work we've done over the winter on the new car, and the work that Mercedes, our powertrain partner, has done on the powertrain, and the hard work the drivers have been doing to keep fit and work in our simulators, we will have a good chance to hit our targets."
