Force India's new name & 2019 driver numbers revealed in FIA entry list

Written by  Dec 01, 2018

Following Lance Stroll's confirmation at Force India on Friday, Formula 1's governing body, the FIA, revealed the entry list for the 2019 season.

The Canadian's arrival isn't the only thing new at the Silverstone-based squad next year as the team name has been changed from Force India to Racing Point F1 following their mid-season takeover by entrepreneur Lawrence Stroll.

Elsewhere four teams, McLaren, Sauber, Toro Rosso and Williams, will see an all-new driver line-up, something that is pretty unprecedented in the modern era.

Four of the six new faces on the grid have all chosen their race numbers, with only Alexander Albon at Toro Rosso to be confirmed.

Robert Kubica, Antonio Giovinazzi and Lando Norris have all picked numbers that have had previous owners too in Rio Haryanto, Adrian Sutil and Max Chilton respectively.

George Russell is the only driver to keep the number assigned to him as a reserve driver, while Daniil Kvyat's return sees him keep the same number as from his first stint on the grid.

There are also no fewer than six drivers changing teams for 2019 in what is one of the biggest shake-ups in many a year.

Two new faces move to the front in the 'big three' replacing Daniel Ricciardo and Kimi Raikkonen who take their step back into the midfield.

Kubica makes his big return for the first since 2010 and it will be the first time since 2002 the name Fernando Alonso is absent from the grid.

The full list can be seen below:
