The Racing Point team will be called the ‘BWT Racing Point Team’ for the 2020 season after announcing that the Austrian water technology specialists will be title sponsor, replacing SportPesa.
As expected, the Racing Point car is again resplendent in the striking pink livery that Best Water Technology first wowed the F1 paddock in 2017, drivers Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll lifting the covers at the home of BWT in Mondsee, Austria.
“Since 2017, we have thoroughly enjoyed building a successful partnership with BWT and we’re delighted to be celebrating our fourth year together by welcoming them as our Title Partner,” commented Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal. “This expanded collaboration truly reflects the loyalty, commitment and energy that they bring to the Racing Point family. I’m pleased we could launch our season here in Mondsee at the home of BWT and shine a spotlight on the valuable work being done by BWT to drive sustainability. We have enjoyed many memorable moments both on and off track already and we now look forward to adding more in the 2020 season.”
New year, new look! 🤩

Andreas Weißenbacher, CEO of BWT, added, “Over the past three years we have brought our distinctive pink colour into Formula 1 and built a very strong relationship with Racing Point. We are committed to helping this team achieve its objectives and this is why we have chosen to increase our support by becoming title partner.
“Working together in this way we believe the team can be much more competitive on the track in 2020. We will also support the team’s push to become more sustainable. Together we will cut down the use of disposable bottles at the track, minimise plastic waste and facilitate the local treatment and consumption of water.”
The team next travels to Barcelona for the important pre-season test that begins in Barcelona on Wednesday 19 February before flying out to Melbourne, Australia, on Sunday 15 March for the opening race of the 2020 season.
