ExxonMobil is driving Formula 1 success for the Red Bull Team

Rather than just a sponsor, ExxonMobil is a technical partner with the Red Bull Formula 1 team. As their fuel (Esso) and lubricant (Mobil 1) partner, they’re able to work hand-in-hand with Honda to maximise the outright performance of the tightly homologated power plant.
“ExxonMobil delivered a revolutionary new oil – that has helped push the team forwards,” ExxonMobil’s Global Motorsport Technology Manager, Tomek Young, said.
“New components were incorporated as they were found to offer many benefits, including stronger interactions with metal surfaces and lower friction, helping deliver maximum power while offering protection and fuel efficiency.
“These benefits translate into an ability to run the engine across a wider range of operating conditions and not be wound back.”
In a demonstration of Mobil 1’s commitment to ‘absolute performance’, Tomek confided engineers had been working on these new components for eight years. However, the opportunity to collaborate directly with Honda and Red Bull has ramped up development, enabling ExxonMobil to bring the new additive package properly into play.
Oils are so much more than just viscosity – that’s only half the story. A lubricant’s additives package can represent up to 30 percent of the final product. These carefully selected and highly engineered components are part of every oil and ultimately define how they perform under various temperatures and pressures and it is reportedly what separates Mobil 1 from ordinary oils.
While ‘pioneering innovation’ is a must to stay ahead in the incredibly competitive world of F1 – there are also real-world benefits.
Vehicle manufacturers are continually striving to lower engine friction for improved fuel efficiency – while simultaneously extending engine life.
Given the long history of Mobil 1 collaborating with manufacturers, there’s no doubt Mobil 1 road users will benefit from the same revolutionary advancements that have helped push Red Bull F1 to the front.
Mobil 1 says ‘absolute performance’ and ‘pioneering innovation’ are much more than just tag lines, stating “it’s in our DNA.”
An extensive range of Mobil1 oils and lubricants is distributed in Australia by MotorActive.
