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.

They have also added these vertical fins to the floor (similar to what Ferrari introduced last year)

Looks like they are still looking at flow around the side pod. They had detachment issues last year at the base if I remember right.

With pre-season testing wrapped up, I think its fair to say Racing Point is off to a slow start. They are much, much worse that I expected. Last years financial issues have hit them hard.

Yes upgrades are on their way, but thats the case for everybody else as well. The team does have a good record of in-season development, but boy do they need to find some time.

Predicting Perez to express his frustration in the media pretty soon.

I think Perez will be calm. The new package is coming for the first race, and by race 3 they should get it sorted out.
Force India may only be off in qualifying pace.
For Sure!!

If what Scarbs says in that video is true, the real 2019 car is yet to be seen. We're don't even know if they tested with this year's merc engine either...

They could yet surprise us with an unexpected jump in performance.

Well, that's a solid upgrade package, definitely the actual race car.
And they call it a stall. A STALL!
