SportPesa Racing Point F1 unveils 2019 livery in Canada

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

As with several other teams, the auto shown is not the team's 2019 entry, but the livery is that which will adorn their vehicle - the event labeled by the team as a "livery and identity presentation".

It's the first time in the history of racing that an F1 team has unveiled its new vehicle exclusively in Canada.

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 as Force India, the team were excluded from the championship last term after falling into administration, before Stroll bailed them out.

The Canadian team, whose 2019 auto is called the RP19, has also revealed a new title sponsor in the form of betting company SportPesa.

Like many other private teams, Racing Point are hoping that a reboot of the sport planned for 2021, with new technical regulations and a more equitable system for distributing prize money, will enable them to close the gap to the front. We've performed well with the resources we have had, but the resources over time will now increase.

"The people I speak to on a daily basis are so enthused by what's happened: The new owners, the sponsors and investment that's in the team is absolutely unprecedented and there's a real sense of "yes, we can show people what we can really do now".

Tip-in at buzzer lifts No. 19 LSU past No. 5 Kentucky
The teams were tied with less than two seconds to play when Tigers guard Skylar Mays attacked the paint and attempted a layup. Kentucky is now 20-3 on the season, 9-1 in the SEC, 13-0 at home, 14-9 against the spread and 14-9 with the under.

"We want to be fighting for podiums and aim for a strong top-four finish".

"We're aiming for at least fourth this year".

However, Racing Point has now stuck.

One aspect of the identity which has carried over from the previous era is the predominantly pink livery which was first introduced in 2017.

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.

Moving from Williams to Racing Point for 2019 is Canadian driver Lance Stroll.
