Racing Point RP19

A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

The Racing Point RP19 in Barcelona testing spec is not the real deal. Team already developing huge upgrade package for Melbourne. Also the budget is 20% more under new management.

What I find interesting is that there seems to be a panel bolted on just before the sidepod. This isn't the case with other teams(as far as I have seen)
Its from last years car,to keep flow attatched to sidepod.
Mercedes also have done it.
I was talking about the panel bolted onto the tub, not the vertical element under the sidepod intake

Car looks like a botched birthday cake. As said before this may not be the real deal.

I think I'm having a deja vu here because I'm sure that has happened before.

According to the following article the budget for 2018 was $120m
https://www.racefans.net/2018/12/19/how ... -part-one/

So for 2019 it would be around $144m considering 20% increase as mentioned by AMuS
