Racing Point Formula One Team has extended its principal partner deal with Austrian water treatment brand Best Water Technology (BWT).
As part of the deal, BWT will continue to provide the Racing Point F1 car with its distinctive pink livery, as was first introduced by BWT in 2017.
BWT branding will also feature prominently on the Racing Point car and other team assets, including the overalls of drivers Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez.
In a company statement, Racing Point said the car’s pink livery helps to highlight BWT’s investment in the team and its commitment to the reduction of single-use plastics.
Part of BWT’s mission statement is to reduce plastic waste and pollution worldwide by switching to reusable vessels and recyclable water filter technologies.
In other team news, Racing Point has also inked a new partnership with UK heavy equipment brand JCB.
Under the multi-year deal, JCB will feature on the Racing Point car and drivers’ overalls.
The new Racing Point car was unveiling yesterday at the Canadian International Autoshow in Toronto – the first ever F1 team launch in Canada.
Racing Point also revealed Kenyan bookmaker SportPesa as its new naming rights partner.
Under the multi-year deals, SportPesa will have blue branding on the front and rear wings and engine cover of the 2019 Racing Point car.
