Racing Point targets P4 as new identity is revealed

Racing Point team principal wants to take new team to 'very top' of F1

First pictures: Racing Point reveals its 2019 F1 livery

This new look obviously represents the new goals and mindset at the team.

Lawrence bought out the struggling Force India team halfway through the 2018 campaign but this has been the first opportunity the team has had to alter their name.

Stroll, 20, and his Mexican teammate wore pink Racing Point uniforms that match the car's colours as they talked about the upcoming season.

Racing Point will entrust its new auto, which will be presented in Barcelona next week, to Sergio Perez and new recruit Lance Stroll, the son of the team's main shareholder and investor, billionaire Lawrence Stroll who was instrumental in ensuring the Silverstone-based squad's survival last summer.

Last year Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll led a consortium to save Force India from administration.

Racing Point, the new identity of the former Force India team, has revealed its livery for the 2019 F1 season at the Canadian International Auto Show.

The 2019 colour scheme continues with the pink used past year, at the behest of one of their sponsors, and adds a dark blue, to reflect the colours of a new one. "We really want to go to the next level". We've performed well with the resources we have had, but the resources over time will now increase.

"We want to be fighting for podiums and aim for a strong top-four finish". "We are aiming for at least fourth again this season. I would be pleased if we could have a couple of podiums as well, have a great season and why not our first victory together?"

However, Racing Point has now stuck.

"And we've all come to the conclusion that basically we're a term of racers and there's nothing wrong with - and actually it encompasses who we are - Racing Point".

Blue has been added to the engine cover and wings for SportPesa, a sports betting company which has signed a "multi-year deal" to become the team's title partner.
