    There are two key roles that Mobil 1™ engine oil must play to help keep a Grand Prix engine running. The first is keeping the internal surfaces in the engine clean and free from deposit build-up. The second is preventing wear. If we fulfil both of these roles, the drivers and the team can begin each race with the confidence to win.

    Trophy vs Heat

    Max Verstappen helps us test Mobil 1™ with every @Formula1 race. We thought we’d return the favour – by putting one of Max’s beloved childhood trophies through the same heat generated by his engine. Can it take the heat like Mobil 1™? Only one way to find out… #TestedToTheMax


    Champagne vs Pressure

    Max Verstappen and Mobil 1™ are used to performing under extreme pressure on the @Formula1 track. We thought we’d find out if Max’s prized bottle of bubbly could do the same… #TestedToTheMax


    Picture vs Friction

    Max Verstappen trusts Mobil 1™ to reduce friction and maintain peak engine performance during every @Formula1 race. The question is… could Max’s favourite picture handle the grind as well as Mobil 1™ does on the track? Only one way to find out…#TestedToTheMax

    Race car: Red Bull RB15

    A Grand Prix race car engine can rev up to 15,000 rpm, the gearbox withstanding up to 3,000 gearshifts per race, and engine oil exposed to temperatures of up to 900°C / 1742°F. Our job isn’t easy under these circumstances. Mobil 1 lubricants separate and cool more than 4000 moving parts, withstand engine forces thousands of times greater than the force of gravity and protect against the stresses generated from a car with a total Power Unit output of 900 brake horsepower (bhp). Mobil 1 and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing work together to make that happen – and our partnership on the track helps us develop road products that keep your engine performing at its best, year after year.



    As Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s official lubricant and fuel partner, our advanced products support their high-powered RB15 race car, helping to enhance the hybrid turbo power unit’s performance.

    Every component needs to last as long as possible. Mobil 1™ protects the engine by reducing the friction between 4000 moving parts, cooling them so the engine can reach the higher temperatures needed at peak power. And if we do our job properly we’re getting the maximum performance of that engine.

    Adrian Newey Chief Technical Officer

    Race Team

    Aston Martin Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in recent Formula 1 history, winning 52 Grand Prix races, four drivers’ and four constructors World Championships during the last 12 years.

    The extensive knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in Grand Prix Racing fits perfectly with the Mobil 1 approach – it’s about clear thinking, extensive research and a combined effort of technology and creativity. We are proud of our achievements, but we are always looking for the next improvement. So here’s to success; past, present and future...


    Christian Horner OBE Team Principal

    « Mobil 1 has been an iconic brand in Formula 1 for more than 30 years and our new partnership provides us with a unique opportunity to tap into ExxonMobil’s world class expertise. »

    Christian's path to the top rung of the Formula One management ladder began as a driver desperate to race at the highest levels. Stints in Formula Renault, British F3 and Formula Two eventually led to him building his own Arden International race team into a junior motorsport powerhouse.

    Three consecutive Drivers' and Team Championships brought him to the attention of Aston Martin Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz, and when the company took the radical step of setting up its own Formula One team in 2005, it turned to Horner to run the operation.

    Adrian Newey OBEChief Technical Officer

    Having taken both Williams and McLaren to the heady heights of multiple title wins in the 1990s, when Newey joined Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in 2006, his task was to help replicate that success and he didn’t disappoint.

    When a comprehensive aerodynamic rule change in 2009 presented designers with a blank canvas, Adrian and the team seized the opportunity and have since delivered four Drivers’ Championships and four Constructors’ Championships for Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.

    The Drivers

    Pierre Gasly and Max Verstappen know that Mobil 1™ lubricants help to reduce friction and wear in all the moving parts of their cars. What does this mean to them? More power in their hands and increased engine reliability on the track.


    Pierre Gasly

    Gasly replaced Daniil Kvyat at Scuderia Toro Rosso for the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix. Another four Formula One outings followed before the team confirmed him for a full-time race seat in 2018. Four points finishes and consistently outperforming his teammate, Brendon Hartley, resulted in a race seat with Aston Martin Red Bull Racing for 2019.

    Max Verstappen

    Max Verstappen joined Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in 2016 after a ballistic ascent through the ranks of motorsport. From his first drive of a kart at the tender age of four and-a-half, Max learnt his trade well and, in his early teens, enjoyed a stellar career in regional and international karting, frequently punching well above his weight against more experienced rivals.

    In his first eight races with Aston Martin Red Bull he achieved six top-five finishes, including four podiums.

    He is the youngest driver to lead a lap during a Formula 1™ Grand Prix, the youngest driver to set the fastest lap during a Formula 1 Grand Prix and the youngest driver to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
