  • Normally when a team has new owners, they try to differentiate themselves from the previous team.  No one would ever confuse a Red Bull for a Stewart or a Jaguar, for example.

    However, Renault didn't change the Lotus livery when they took over Enstone.  They were more concerned with the team seeing things as a continuation of a successful programme, and I think that Racing Point is doing the same thing.  They're not trying to distance themselves from Force India, a very strong 'best of the rest', but build on the success that Force India brought. 

    No point in changing the team just because there's a new guy signing the pay cheques, so good on Racing Point for focusing on continuity and building instead of pretending they're a brand new team.

    I also think the pink is a good choice, very distinctive, which is important when looking for sponsors.

  • I like the pink, but I would have preferred the livery that was supposedly "leaked" a week or so ago.

  • As a general rule, owners don't like upsetting sponsors that have colour-selection rights more than necessary. I'm assuming the blue is a concession to the fact the new owners aren't going to need a loan to get to mid-season.
