Racing Point F1 Team, known officially as the SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team, are a British constructor and entrant, who compete in the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship as the entry of Racing Point UK Limited, based at Silverstone.[1] Founded ahead of the 2018 Belgian Grand Prix, Racing Point were formed after a consortium headed by Canadian businessman Lawrence Stroll bought Force India out of administration midway through the 2018 season.[2]

After completing the 2018 season as a new entry despite using all of Force India's staff, facilities and car, the VJM11, Racing Point would start afresh in 2019.[3] The team duly replaced Esteban Ocon with owner Lawrence Stroll's son Lance Stroll to partner Sergio Pérez, with the duo going on to secure seventh in the Championship.[3]

Stroll and Pérez were subsequently re-signed for the 2020 season, with a deal to use Mercedes engines also renewed.[1] The team scored their first pole position at the Turkish Grand Prix. and their first victory at the Sakhir Grand Prix.

From the 2021 season Racing Point were to become Aston Martin Racing, after Stroll invested heavily in the British automotive manufacturer in January 2020.[4]
