'New colours for Aston Martin, 'pink sponsor' BWT may disappear altogether'

Racing Point becomes Aston Martin in 2021 after Lawrence Stroll also bought the legendary British brand. As a result, the colours of the F1 car will also change in 2021, which could mean the departure of a major sponsor.

The current Racing Point was dressed in pink for the first time in 2017, with new title sponsor BWT. BWT had first had long negotiations with Mercedes and a deal for a pink Mercedes was almost ready. However, Daimler intervened and a new design with less pink was not to BWT's liking.

New colours for Aston Martin

They then chose to invest in Force India, which was to become Racing Point in 2018. Pink provided a distinctive colour on the Formula 1 grid, but that colour is likely to disappear in 2021. Lance Stroll was already hinting at a unique colour for 2021: British Racing Green. The original colour of British racing.

This would make the pink of BWT and disappear, and according to Motorsport-total.com it could also be that the title sponsor of Racing Point disappears from Formula 1. Lawrence Stroll would be in talks with the American IT Service Cognizant, who may become the new title sponsor of Aston Martin. It is not yet clear whether the arrival of this sponsor will really mean that BWT will disappear.
