  • F1: Force India to consider further name change for 2019

    Force India will consider further change of name for 2019 https://www.racefans.net/2018/08/24/...nge-name-2019/

    2019 F1 season

    Posted on

    24th August 2018, 21:57 | Written by Dieter Rencken and Keith Collantine
    Force India could adopt a new identity for the 2019 F1 season following its change of ownership.

    The team has entered its cars under the name Racing Point Force India F1 Team for this weekend’s race. However its constructor name, which F1 teams are widely known by, remains Force India Mercedes.

    New team principal Otmar Szafnauer said the team will consider whether to change its team and constructor names for 2019.

    “We’ve got some time to decide that,” he said in today’s FIA press conference.

    “But I believe now that we are a new entrant with Force India as a chassis name, for us to change we will have to get approval from the Formula One Commission. So we’ve got to come up with a name that will be lasting and appropriate and also be approved by the Formula One Commission.

    “So I don’t know what that is. This is brand new, but the good news is that we’ve got a few months to think about it before we have to enter for next year.”

    Applications for the 2019 season have to be submitted by November 30th, five days after this year’s season finale in Abu Dhabi.


    Force India was required to keep its previous name in order to gain approval to continue competing in the championship following its change in ownership. Some rival teams who were concerned Force India could be turned into a Mercedes B-team pushed for its previous identity to be retained.

    Speaking in a separate interview later, Szafnauer said there “won’t be this Ferrari/Haas type of relationship [with Mercedes], even though the others were worried about it.”

    The team and its drivers also continue with the same allocation of power unit components they had previously.

    “We had confirmation today from [FIA race director] Charlie [Whiting] that we will continue with the engine allocation and gearbox allocation as if we never ceased racing,” said Szafnauer.

    “I think in his eyes he thought that was the most fair thing to do vis-a-vis the other teams, so that’s how we’re going to go forward.”

    As Mercedes has introduced a new specification of power unit this weekend, both Force India drivers are using new engines and associated parts.

        FIA stewards rule Force India will not have new power unit and gearbox allocation


        2018 Belgian Grand Prix

        Posted on

        25th August 2018, 10:49 | Written by Keith Collantine
        The Belgian Grand Prix stewards have formally ruled Force India will not receive a new allocation of power unit parts, despite the team being approved as a new entrant.

        Force India’s cars have been entered by Racing Point Force India following its takeover by a consortium involving Lawrence Stroll. It replaces the previous entry, Sahara Force India.



        ADVERT | BECOME A RACEFANS SUPPORTER & GO AD-FREE

        The new team has forfeited all the points scored by Sahara Force India. its drivers points totals remain unchanged. However the stewards admitted the rules did not appear to indicate whether the new team would start the weekend with a fresh allocation of power units for the season, or continue with its previous allocation.



        “The current regulations do not appear to take into account the highly unusual situation where a team is excluded mid-season and a new team effectively ‘replaces’ it, and the drivers move from the former team to the new team<" they noted. The stewards judged that "as the drivers have retained their respective points accumulated to date in the 2018 Events in the championship it is both logical and fair, that the elements, units and gearboxes used by their respective cars in the excluded team, should carry forward to the new team." "Accordingly, we decide that the numbers of power unit elements and gearboxes referred to in Article 23 of the Sporting Regulations and used to date in 2018 by Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team shall carry forward to Racing Point Force India F1 Team. "It is noted that the team principal of Racing Point Force India F1 Team publicly expressed his prior agreement with this." [leaderboard2] The stewards’ decision
        The Stewards note the following three decisions of the FIA:

        1. On August 23, 2018, Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team was excluded from the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship with immediate effect.

        2. The points that the above team was awarded from its results in Events to date in the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship under Article 6.2 of the Sporting Regulations are forfeited.

        3. The points that the drivers for the Sahara Fore India Formula 1 Team have been awarded from their results in the Events to date in the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship under Article 6.1 of the Sporting regulations are not forfeited. Instead they are retained by the drivers and may be combined for purposes of said Article 6.1 with any points that the same drivers are awarded from their results whilst driving for the Racing Point Force India F1 Team in Events in the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship that takes place after 23 August 2018.

        In relation to the application of Article 23 of the Sporting Regulations (“Spare cars, engines and gearboxes”) the Stewards note that the matter of the number of power unit elements and gearboxes needs to be settled, in that the current regulations do not appear to take into account the highly unusual situation where a team is excluded mid-season and a new team effectively “replaces” it, and the drivers move from the former team to the new team. The question arises “do the power unit elements and gearbox numbers accumulated to date by the excluded Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team carry over to the new Racing Point Force India F1 Team or do they revert to zero for each of the drivers?”

        The Stewards note their responsibility under Article 11.9.1 of the International Sporting Code where they have supreme authority for the enforcement of the Code, which under Article 1.1.1 requires the fundamental principles of “…fairness”.

        Article 11.9.2.a of the Code empowers the Stewards to settle any matter which might arise during an event.

        The Stewards consider that as the drivers have retained their respective points accumulated to date in the 2018 Events in the Championship it is both logical and fair, that the elements, units and gearboxes used by their respective cars in the excluded team, should carry forward to the new team.

        Accordingly, we decide that the numbers of power unit elements and gearboxes referred to in Article 23 of the Sporting Regulations and used to date in 2018 by Sahara Force India Formula 1 Team shall carry forward to Racing Point Force India F1 Team.

        It is noted that the Team Principal of Racing Point Force India F1 Team publicly expressed his prior agreement with this.

        Competitors are reminded that they have the right to appeal the decisions of the Stewards (with the exception of those referred to in Article 12.2.4 of the FIA International Sporting Code), in accordance with Article 15 of the FIA International Sporting Code and Article 9.1.1 of the FIA Judicial and Disciplinary Rules, within the applicate time limits.
