Racing Point driver Lance Stroll expects the team will drop its familiar bright pink livery when it rebrands as Aston Martin next year.
“I believe it will be British racing green so it will be pretty cool,” said Stroll in today’s FIA press conference at Sochi Autodrom.
Another change has already been confirmed in the team’s driver line-up. Sebastian Vettel will replace Sergio Perez as Stroll’s team mate.
“I just knocked on his motorhome in Mugello and shook his hand, welcomed him to the team,” said Stroll. “It’s going to be very exciting so I’m looking forward to it.”
Stroll is back in action this weekend after the crash which ended his race at Mugello. He said he was almost completely unhurt in the high-speed impact.
“My calf was a little bit sore the next day because I put so much pressure into the brake pedal. But that was it.
“The cars now are so safe it’s really thanks to the FIA and Formula 1 for over the years implementing the safety regulations that I walked away from that crash without any injuries. It’s great to see how safe the cars have become over the years.
“At the end of the day it was just a shame that we had such a big points score slip away from us.”
