Shell V-Power race fuel and Pennzoil PurePlus™ Technology motor oil delivered an unparalleled 25% of total performance gain to the SF15-T Formula 1® power unit of Scuderia Ferrari in 2015. That results in almost half a second per lap, equating to an average of 30 seconds over an entire race. That performance gain helped power Scuderia Ferrari to 14 podiums, three victories, and second place in the 2015 Formula 1® Constructors’ Championship with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.
“We worked closer than ever with our colleagues in Maranello where we fully integrated our development plans to optimize the fuel-engine package and it was great to see that our hard work paid off, helping to power the team back to winning ways,” said Guy Lovett, Innovation Manager at Shell Motorsport.
