SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team continue to choose Gtechniq to maintain aerodynamic efficiency
Gtechniq joined the Silverstone-based team, to help maintain the aerodynamic efficiency of the team’s two cars, now driven by Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll. And until the end of the 2020 season Gtechniq will be the team’s official supplier for all car care products and surface protection.
Over the last six years Gtechniq has worked closely with Racing Point to maintain the aerodynamic efficiency of the team’s two cars, supplying them with a number of advanced ceramic coatings.
Racing Point's Head of Composite Design, Bruce Eddington, said: “Initial trials of Crystal Serum Ultra were so positive that we have expanded the product coverage on the race car to include all the major aerodynamic surfaces.”
Rob Earle, managing director of Gtechniq, said: “We have been working with Racing Point for a long time to find a solution to a common ongoing problem in motor racing - improving and maintaining the aerodynamic performance of the cars. Testing has revealed that Crystal Serum Ultra is the best performer on this year’s chassis, providing supreme slickness and aerodynamic properties, we hope that this will go towards some more podium wins in the next three seasons.”
SportPesa Racing Point, Technical Director, Andrew Green, said: “A Formula One Car is designed to an incredible degree of precision and it’s crucial to maintain all the aerodynamic surfaces in the correct condition so they behave as originally designed. Rubber build-up is highly disruptive and a product like Crystal Serum Ultra is vital to prevent loss of performance. We are delighted to continue our technical partnership with Gtechniq and benefit from their expertise”.
