Racing Point has become the second Formula 1 team to confirm the launch date for its 2019 car after announcing it will unveil next year's challenger at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto on February 13.

In a tip towards the team's new Canadian owner, Lawrence Stroll, and his son, Lance Stroll, who will race for the team in 2019, the car will be unveiled in Canada, as confirmed via Twitter on Monday.

The new Racing Point car will be launched two days prior to Ferrari's unveil on February 15. All other 2019 launches are still to be announced.

Stroll Jr. will race alongside Sergio Perez in 2019, who remains with the Silverstone-based operation formerly known as Force India for a sixth consecutive season.

Racing Point was established back in August following Force India's takeover by a consortium led by Lawrence Stroll, with a mid-season entry being permitted by the FIA in return for loss of the team's constructors' championship points. It recovered to finish seventh in the final standings.
