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 Nico Hülkenberg 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]

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]
