Ahead of their first full season of not being called Force India anymore, reports have come out that Racing Point will change their livery from pink to a mix of pink and blue.
The Pink Panthers have been very distinguishable in recent years with their pink livery, which was inspired by sponsor BWT. Now, though, things are set to change as Lawrence Stroll's team is set to be called 'Racing Point'
According to Sport Business, Racing Point have struck a $15 million sponsorship deal with SportPesa, an African betting company. The deal includes livery rights, which would mean the pink will be mixed with blue in 2019.
Sport Business reports BWT paid exactly $15 million as well to be the main sponsor, meaning things will be shaken up now.
“Sport Business cannot confirm that SportPesa has acquired team title rights as part of the deal, but can reveal that the team will change its racing colours to pink and blue this season,” the report reads.
