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 Max must be stronger.

Bringing race-proven technology to the road

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™ motor oils that protect the engine in your car.

Max Verstappen knows that Mobil 1™ lubricants help to reduce friction and wear in all the moving parts of his car. What does this mean to him? More power in his hands and increased engine reliability on the track.

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.

Race car: Aston Martin Red Bull Racing-TAG Heuer RB14

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 gearbox withstanding up to 3,000 gearshifts per race, and engine oil exposed to temperatures of up to 300°C / 572°F. 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 the stresses generated from a car with a total Power Unit output of 900 brake horsepower (bhp). Mobil 1 and 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.

Red Bull RB14

Aston Martin Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in recent Formula 1 history, winning 55 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


 

Christian Horner

“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 OBE
Chief Technical Officer


 

Adrian Newey

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