The Shell Winter Test

Over the winter break, Shell put together a driving day like no other at a closed track in the Swiss Alps with Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen. Lucky fans and aspiring racers were flown to Switzerland to test Shell’s products first-hand in sub-zero temperatures, with a twist. Their mission? To hold off the Iceman himself for just two laps in a unique go-kart race on ice. The experience was designed to recreate the extreme test bed of motorsport Shell uses to develop its Shell V-Power fuels and Shell Helix Ultra synthetic motor oils for the road, made possible by the Shell Innovation Partnership with Scuderia Ferrari, one of most long-lasting and recognised relationships in the world of motor racing.’

Significant efficiency gains for Scuderia Ferrari

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.
