Racing Point to launch 2020 F1 programme two days before testing

The Racing Point Formula 1 team has announced a date for the launch of its 2020 programme

It will take place on February 17, at the headquarters of backer BWT in the Austrian town of Mondsee.

Water tech company BWT joined the team in 2017, when it was known as Force India. Its sponsorship has led to the Silverstone-based team campaigning cars with a predominantly pink livery in the subsequent campaigns.

The 2020 season will mark the team's second year in its current guise as Racing Point, the name adopted following a takeover of Vijay Mallya's Force India outfit by a consortium led by Lawrence Stroll.

Stroll's son Lance will continue to drive for the outfit in 2020 alongside Sergio Perez, who signed a new long-term contract last year.

Racing Point is the sixth team to announce a reveal date for its 2020 challenger, with the other five previously confirmed launches all taking place the week before.

Pre-season testing will kick off at Barcelona on February 19, two days after Racing Point's launch.
