Racing Point will not be Force India's new name in 2019

Written by  Dec 05, 2018

Racing Point will not be the permanent new name of the Force India team in 2019, team boss Otmar Szafnauer has confirmed.

Last week, following their confirmation of Lance Stroll, the FIA issued the full entry list for next season which saw the 10-year name of the Silverstone-based team dropped with only the new entry name included.

Fans weren't too impressed with the prospect, however, and now their American boss has reassured that Racing Point F1 won't be the long-term choice.

“It is just a placeholder to indicate future change which will take place and be announced before the 2019 season,” Szafnauer told Autosport without giving any indication of what the new name might be.

Elsewhere, Sergio Perez has downplayed fears he may not be fairly treated by a team run by Lawrence Stroll with his son Lance in the opposite garage.

“I don’t think so,” he told RaceFans. “It’s in the interest of everyone including the team owners that this team is a successful team, that the investment they’ve done is successful.

“So for that, we need both cars as strong as possible. We both have to work very hard, we have to work together to bring the teams as [far] forward as possible.

“So its’ in the interests of everyone. We are a team now and we just have to work like that.”
