Force India name disappears as FIA reveals 2019 entry list

NEWS STORY
30/11/2018

Following confirmation earlier today that Lance Stroll will partner Sergio Perez, ahead of next week's meeting of the World Motor Sport Council, the FIA has tonight issued the provisional entry list for next year.

As expected, Force India disappears from the grid after 11 seasons, following the rescue of the financially beleaguered outfit by a consortium led by Lawrence Stroll.

The team is now known as Racing Point F1 Team, with the chassis designated Racing Point, however this is understood to be temporary with the new owners expected to propose their new name to the World Motor Sport Council next week

Ferrari has included the horrendous Mission Winnow into its name, while, having lost title sponsor Martini, Williams Martini Racing reverts to plain old Williams Racing.

Courtesy of its deal with Rich Energy, Haas becomes the Rich Energy Haas F1 Team, though according to reliable sources that particular partnership could be in doubt.

Lando Norris will race with the number 4 on his car, the number having previously been used by Max Chilton at Manor, while Antonio Giovinazzi resurrects the number 99 used by Adrian Sutil.

George Russell will use 63, while teammate Robert Kubica is to use 88, which was previously used by Rio Haryanto.

Alexander Albon has yet to confirm his race number.

"With old driver numbers being reused its probably a good time for F1 to consider number retirement program. A few numbers come to mind, like 7. In two years of course, if the owner retires that is, hopefully not, maybe a third year with Sauber could be possible, lets see. "

"It almost reminds me of the old Indy 500 entry lists. Thank goodness for Sauber and Williams."

"@ mds167

Officially it is Williams Martini Racing until the contract ends on 31st December.

The team livery is always different in Abu Dhabi as it is in Bahrain, due to the alcohol laws.

We hear that a new major sponsor will be announced soon."

"Only the other day, Williams’ new partner said “"Cooperation between PKN Orlen and Williams Martini Racing starts a new era for motorsports in Poland, as well as building the global reach of our brand”. Did know one tell him they were leaving?! The red was missing from the test livery too. Do hope they have a new title sponsor soon and a budget to get higher up the grid."

"One might have hoped the FIA would have rejected this cheap attempt by addictive nicotine delivery specialist Philip Morris to resume advertising in F1. Its branding on Ferrari cars and drivers is an embarrassment."

""Ferrari has included the horrendous Mission Winnow into its name" - I thought tobacco advertising was banned or am I misunderstanding?"
