Racing Point’s 2020 Formula 1 car was instantly recognisable as having a lot in common with last year’s Mercedes.

The team was happy to admit that it put in a huge amount of work analysing the championship-winning W10 to make its own version. But beyond the obvious similarities, how much of the car is a straight copy, and what has Racing Point done to put its own touches on the design without losing the fundamental traits that made the silver version so successful?
