Alongside the new car reveal, Racing Point have also confirmed long time partner BWT have signed up for primary title sponsor this season - the last year before the squad become the official Aston Martin Formula One team, adding further funding and stability to a team rebuilding on their way back to the front of an incredibly tight midfield battle.

Here is last year's car for comparison. Besides the size and angle of the BWT logo, the big differences are the dark blue on the airbox, rear wing and front wing; and the grey and dark pink around the sidepod inlets and down the nose.

I think the new livery is more cohesize and a big improvement over the clashing colors of the 2019 livery

By far the best Force India/Racing Point pink livery of the lot. Love the diagonal BWT and how it incorporates in with the white and darker pink.

I can't say I like it, because I hate pink on everything, not just on race cars, but at least it's better than last year.

Of course, the problem with every single car this season, and the seasons before, is the wheelbase. Modern F1 cars are just too long. I know it's all in the name of safety, but it looks awful.

Look at this one, in comparison:

You heard it from the 'horse's mouth'
Before the race water....
After the race champagne...for each...at least once this season.
This should be good.

Not a big change, but still very decent I think. They get major bonus points from me from being so intentionally different with the pink. This is going to be a really attractive field of cars I think - looking forward to seeing them in action, should really "pop" on TV.

The new nose looks better than the old nostril design. And the way they followed trend and moved the sidepod intake back behind the side protection beam shows that they invested time and money towards this year's car instead of small refinements. I hope these changes pay off for them

I guess the Aston Martin deal is of is it. There would be more green if it was on. Don't like the pink reminds me of my ex girlfriends private place.

Aston Martin will be title sponsor starting in 2021, once their current contract with Red Bull is over
