Force India team principal Otmar Szafnauer says the Formula 1 squad will likely have a new name before the end of 2018. Force India was saved from administration by a consortium led by Lawrence Stroll in August and officially renamed Racing Point Force India, but another change has always been expected.
The team had been toying with the prospect of changing names for several years, moving away from the Indian image that they brought into the sport with Vijay Mallya in 2008.
Whether the name will be centralised on the 'Racing Point' name, a sponsor title or something else entirely is not known and Szafnauer says many options remain on the table.
Although a final decision remains in the distance, the team hope that it won't be too long inot the post-season before a new moniker is found.
