Working with Ferrari in 2014

The 2014 Formula One season has got off to a flying start with the spotlight on the game-changing introduction of the new V6 turbo-charged engine. The rule changes also require teams to use significantly less fuel while trying to extract even more power. That means, for Ferrari, the technical partnership with Shell and its pioneering trackside analysis is now more critical than ever to deliver podium results.

The Shell Trackside Lab

At the race

Every race weekend, Shell scientists work in the Ferrari paddock to perform over 70 tests on Shell race fuel and oil. As well as enabling drivers to reach peak performance at all times, the high-speed, high-pressure test bed of the Grand Prix ensures all Shell products have survived the harshest engineering test available. In fact, Shell V-Power race fuel and Shell V-Power unleaded road fuel contain 99% of the same types of compounds.
