Partnership renewal Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and ExxonMobil
In a sport where success only comes when every detail of engineering performance is perfectly in tune, racing with fuels and lubricants designed to provide a crucial competitive edge is of paramount importance.
That’s why we're pleased to announce the multi-year extension of the collaboration with ExxonMobil as official fuel, lubricant and technology partner. Under the renewed agreement, ExxonMobil will provide engineering support to develop next-generation lubricants needed to improve engine and gearbox performance, starting with the Team’s 2020 Formula One car, the RB16.
Since the successful collaboration started in 2017, ExxonMobil has continuously improved its Esso Synergy racing fuels and Mobil 1 lubricants in close collaboration with the Team’s engine suppliers, resulting in enhanced performance, improved lap times and valuable research lessons for ExxonMobil as it develops new consumer products.
Commenting on the renewal of the agreement, Christian of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing said: “We're very pleased to be continuing our successful partnership with ExxonMobil for the upcoming 2020 Formula One season and beyond. Over the past three seasons the work conducted by ExxonMobil, in close collaboration with our engineers and the Team’s engine suppliers, has produced very positive results. Each new development of fuel and lubricants has added performance that have undoubtedly helped us charge towards our on-track goals and we look forward to seeing further gains through the extension of this partnership.”
