Racing Point to hold 2019 season launch in Canada

"Racing Point was an off-the-shelf company that was used to buy the assets of Force India".

As well as the Force India date, Ferrari team principal Maurizio Arrivabene has said his team is aiming to unveil its 2019 vehicle on February 15.

The move also signifies a possible change in the team's base following a takeover by the consortium led by Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll.

Force India finished the 2018 championship in seventh place.

The name of the brewing Formula 1 team, Racing Point, is just a provisional brand.

The former Force India team is set for an official name change before the start of next season but is now entered under the holding name of Racing Point.

Warm pattern doesn't bode well for White Christmas
And while it's becoming more likely that there will be no snow this year, Cutter said dreamers shouldn't give up hope. Highest chance of seeing snow during the 8 day period will be late Friday into Saturday with very windy conditions.

Racing Point announced on Monday that it will hold a 2019 season launch at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto on February 13.

Under the FIA, Racing Point is the label of the Silverstone-based squad and the chassis.

That was part of the ongoing transition following the convoluted solution to the troubles faced by the Force India entry. Pre-season testing will begin at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain five days after the event.

Hence, the Force India brand will officially vanish from Formula 1 in the New Year.

The Mercedes-powered team will include Stroll's son, Lance, who will race with number 18 alongside Sergio Perez who will race with number 11.
