Racing Point F1 Team

Profile

Vijay Mallya acquired the team that had started life as Jordan Grand Prix in 2008 and ran it as Force India until it entered administration in July 2018. The father of Williams driver Lance Stroll and successful Canadian entrepreneur, Lawrence Stroll led a consortium that bought the Silverstone-based concern in the summer break, with the name Racing Point Force India adopted for the rest of 2018.

It was rebranded as Racing Point at the start of the 2019 season, with Stroll Jr inevitably part of the driving line-up for that year and the next. Racing Point scored points at the first four races of 2019 with lead driver Sergio PĂ©rez sixth in Azerbaijan. The Mexican was a regular in the top ten during the second half f the season and finished tenth in the World Championship.

Lawrence Stroll acquired a stake in Aston Martin in 2020 and his team will be named after the famous old marque from 2021.
