Racing Point F1 reveals launch date for 2020 contender


Racing Point F1 has become the sixth team to announce the launch date of its 2020 car, with the pink squad pulling the covers off on Monday, February 17.

Racing Point's unveiling will take place at the Austrian headquarters in Mondsee of sponsor BWT, a manufacturer of water treatment systems.

The Silverstone-based team's launch will take place just two days before pre-season testing gets underway at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.

This year, Racing Point's driver line-up will once again include the experienced Sergio Perez, a veteran of 176 Grands Prix, and 21-year-old Lance Stroll who enters his fourth season in F1.

Racing Point's ambition this season is to improve on its performance from 2019, a year in which the team finished 7th in the Constructors' championship.
