CASTROL PARTNERSHIP EXPANDED
The expanded partnership allows Renault drivers to benefit from the successful cooperation already in place
When Castrol last year announced an extension to its strategic partnership with the Renault DP World F1 Team, it ensured Castrol would continue to provide advanced engine oil, gear and hydraulic oils, greases and brake fluid to the Team until at least the end of 2024.
The announcement though went even further, with the news that Groupe Renault had formally appointed Castrol as its aftersales’ global service fill engine oil lubricants partner from 2020.
Underpinned by a Renault Castrol joint-branded product range – available exclusively to Renault dealers – this expanded partnership provides a platform for Renault drivers to benefit from the successful cooperation already in place through the existing motorsport technical association.
Castrol says that with a strong technical partnership now in place across service fill and Formula 1, this broader alignment will allow both parties to push technological boundaries both on and off the track.
In combination with Castrol, one of the world’s leading lubricants brands, Groupe Renault intends to build a strong foundation that will enable Renault customers and dealers to enjoy the best service and products, while relentlessly pursuing their Formula 1 ambitions.
“Castrol is an industry leader in its field with a rich heritage in motor racing and feeder series,” Renault Sport Racing Managing Director, Cyril Abiteboul, said.
“A partnership of this scale and length underlines the desire to write a common history.”
