Our Role In The Race

Shell’s Track Lab team is trackside for every race, sampling and testing the fuels and lubricants as Shell helps power the Ferrari team to success.

From Trackside To Roadside

Discover how the technological advances that power Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1® cars find their way into your vehicle via Shell V-Power and Shell Helix.

Leading the way in innovation and efficiency

In 2017, Shell was proud to announce that its shell V-Power race fuel and Shell Helix Ultra race lubricant delivered 23.3% of the total efficiency gain of Scuderia Ferrari’s power unit since the end of the 2014 season. This means Scuderia Ferrari could go over half a second a lap faster with the same amount of fuel.
