Force India name vanishes from F1 for 2019

The Force India name will disappear from Formula 1 next year, with the team being officially renamed Racing Point F1.

Following the takeover of the outfit by a consortium led by Lawrence Stroll, it had retained its Force India moniker for its team and chassis.

However in the official 2019 F1 entry list that was published by the FIA on Friday night, it was confirmed the Silverstone-based squad would be fully rebranded.

Entry list:

It will bring an end to the Force India name which has been present in F1 since former team boss Vijay Mallya took over the Spyker team at the end of the 2007 campaign.

More insight:

The entry list also confirmed the race numbers for the majority of F1’s 2019 class of rookies.

McLaren’s Lando Norris will race with #4, Williams’ George Russell will have #63 and Sauber’s Antonio Giovinazzi will run with #99.

Toro Rosso's Alexander Albon is yet to reveal his number, but F1 returnee Robert Kubica will race with #88 on his Williams.

Elsewhere, there are revised team names, most notably with Scuderia Ferrari adding the Mission Winnow tag to its official entry, while Haas F1 has added new sponsor Rich Energy to its name.
