Racing Point F1™ Team
Dadford Road, Silverstone Northamptonshire, NN12 8TJ United Kingdom
Racing Point F1 Team, competing as BWT Racing Point F1 Team and commonly known as Racing Point is a British motor racing team and Constructor that Racing Point UK has entered into the Formula One World Championship. The team is based in Silverstone, United Kingdom and 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 "Force India" for the latter half of the 2018 season. Racing Point made their racing debut at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix. The team's drivers for the 2020 season are Sergio Pérez and Lance Stroll. The team will be rebranded to Aston Martin for the 2021 Formula One season.
Racing Point's origins lie in the Jordan Grand Prix team, which first raced in 1991. Jordan saw moderate success in the late 1990s and early 2000s, particularly in 1999 when the team achieved two race victories and finished 3rd in the World Constructors' Championship. A decline in performance followed, culminating in the team being sold to the Midland Group in 2005 and being renamed Midland F1 Racing for the 2006 season. The team remained unsuccessful, failing to score any points. Midland F1 was sold to Dutch sports car marque Spyker Cars late in the season, before becoming Spyker F1 in 2007. After another season with little improvement, albeit with the team scoring its first point in over two years at the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix, the team was sold to Indian businessman Vijay Mallya.
The Silverstone-based team was renamed Force India for the 2008 season, its fourth identity in as many years. Force India saw moderate success across its 10 and a half years in Formula One, achieving a pole position at the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix, six podium places and finishing 4th in the World Constructors' Championship in both 2016 and 2017. During the 2018 season, the team was put into administration as a result of financial and legal troubles encountered by team owner Mallya. Force India's assets were purchased by Racing Point UK, a consortium led by Canadian businessman Lawrence Stroll. However, the team's official Formula One entry was not transferable, marking the official end of the entry originating in 1991. The team was renamed Racing Point Force India for the remainder of the 2018 season before becoming Racing Point for the 2019 season.
