Aston Martin Red Bull Racing
 

A partnership built for the podium

As Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s official lubricant 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 300 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.” – David Tsurusaki, Motorsports Technology Manager, ExxonMobil

Our dedicated Mobil 1™ engineers strive to protect Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s engine against the high temperatures reached at maximum performance. What we learn on the track is applied when developing Mobil 1™ lubricants that protect the engine in your car.

A sport defined by extremes

Mobil 1 race lubricants are helping to make Aston Martin Red Bull Racing even faster, which further amplifies the extremes of every race. In Formula One, the drivers, race cars and lubricants are always pushed to their limits.

124 heavyweight punches
Drivers feel G-forces similar to 124 heavyweight punches.
370 kph
Race cars achieve average speeds of 370 kilometers per hour on some tracks.
300º Celsius
Motor oil must withstand temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius.

Ever wonder what 5 Gs feel like?

The latest Formula One race season brings new challenges. Wider tires + more aerodynamic downforce = more speed, more Gs and more stress on the drivers. Mobil 1 lubricant technology helps Aston Martin Red Bull Racing go faster, which means drivers Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly must be stronger to withstand the increased physical demands of every race.



Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly 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? As they take on the current Formula One® season, it means more confidence in their car, extra power in their hands, increased engine reliability on the track and more chances to find the podium.

Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen joined Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in 2016 after a ballistic ascent through the ranks of motorsports. From the first time he drove a kart at the tender age of four-and-a-half, Max learned 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 Racing, he achieved six top-five finishes, including four podiums.
He is the youngest driver to lead a lap during a Formula One Grand Prix, the youngest driver to set the fastest lap during a Formula One Grand Prix and the youngest driver to win a Formula One Grand Prix. In 2018, Max finished his fourth Formula One season with two wins and 11 podiums.

Pierre Gasly

Pierre Gasly joined Aston Martin Red Bull Racing in 2019 following his success in the karting world, the Formula Renault 3.5 Series and GP2. In his first full season in Formula One, Pierre aims to compete for the biggest prizes and take steps toward finding the podium and becoming a champion.

Race car: Aston Martin Red Bull Racing RB15

Speed
0 to 100 km/h (62 mph): 1.7 seconds

A Grand Prix race car engine can rev up to 15,000 rpm. The motor oil endures temperatures of up to 300 degrees Celsius/572 degrees Fahrenheit and the gearbox experiences up to 3,000 gearshifts per race. Our job isn’t easy under these circumstances. Mobil 1™ lubricants separate and cool more than 300 moving parts, withstand engine forces thousands of times greater than the force of gravity and protect against stresses generated from a car with a total output of more than 900 brake horsepower (bhp).

Red Bull RB14

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in recent Formula One® history, winning more than 55 Grand Prix races, four Drivers’ and four Constructors’ World Championships during the last 13 years. The extensive knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in Grand Prix Racing fits perfectly with the Mobil 1™ team’s approach: It’s about clear thinking, extensive research, and a combined effort of technology and creativity.


Christian Horner OBE
Team Principal


 

Christian Horner

Christian's path to the top rung of the Formula One management ladder began as a driver determined 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 Formula One World Drivers' and Team Championships brought him to the attention of 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.
 

“Mobil 1 has been an iconic brand in Formula One for more than 30 years, and our partnership provides us with a unique opportunity to tap into ExxonMobil’s world-class expertise.” – Christian Horner, Team Principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing

Adrian Newey

Having taken both Williams and McLaren to the heady heights of multiple title wins in the 1990s, when Adrian joined 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 Formula One Drivers’ Championships and four Formula One Constructors’ Championships for Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.
