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.

Racing Point are the second team to homologate a new chassis this year, according to motorsport.com! New rear end package to arrive in Hockenheim, while a new front suspension, FW, nose and bargeboards will arrive in Hungary.

If their B-spec works they might join Renault and McLaren in the battle dor 4th on pace (points wise they are not going to catch them anymore in the WCC I think).
True GOATs don’t need the help of superior material to win.

Tom Brady, Usain Bolt are true GOATs.

Balast? So much? :o
This could be the weight of the FW without the nose I think.
