Racing Point has been a point of much criticism this season. The Lawrence Stroll team was very much inspired by last year’s Mercedes car and caused a lot of commotion with their copying behavior. The rules were eventually tightened and Racing Point was fined and lost World Cup points. Now, however, the team wants to implement yet another controversial plan that is technically permissible, but that the other teams will once again be unhappy about.
Racing Point wants to make use of an arrangement that was discussed prior to this season for the coming season. Teams must use tokens to change specific parts of the cars. However, there is an exception to this rule: teams that are still driving with parts from 2019 can upgrade these parts without having to surrender tokens. Racing Point is one of the teams to qualify for this exception and so the team would in principle not use tokens for upgrading their gearbox and rear suspension.
It is therefore logical that the competition is not happy with this plan from Racing Point, but according to Andrew Green, technical director at the team, this plan will simply be executed. “I think we can just keep doing that, actually,” Green told opposite Motorsport.com. “It’s all by the rules and we’ve already checked with the FIA and they don’t think it’s a problem either.”
“The regulations allow us to upgrade our car to the 2020 specs, so I think that’s only fair,” Green continues. “We chose to drive with the 2019 suspension. We already did that before the corona crisis and they should not suddenly use it against us. We too must be able to equip our car with the same specifications as the other teams. ”
