I was in that situation once. But I was the experienced programmer and the rest of the team wanted to use C. For a web application and gui code. They overrode me but given the number of segfaults and memory leaks the application suffered I was right and should have stood my ground. However given the description of your situation I doubt you'll lose that much productivity by choosing Python. Imho, you are at least twice as productive in Python than in C. But no language exist in which you are twice as productive compared to Python.
