The Mobil 1™ brand is Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s official lubricant partner. The relationship supplies the Formula One team with Mobil 1™ racing oils and provides world-class engineering support throughout the race season.
A partnership built for the podium
Max Verstappen and Alex Albon know that Mobil 1™ lubricants help to reduce friction and wear in all the moving parts of their race cars. What does this mean to them? As they take on the current Formula One season, it means more confidence in their car, extra power in their hands, increased engine reliability on the track and more opportunity to reach the podium.
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing is one of the most successful teams in recent Formula One history, winning more than 60 Formula One Grand Prix races, four Drivers’ and four Constructors’ World Championships during the last 13 years. The extensive knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in Grand Prix Racing fits perfectly with the Mobil 1™ team’s approach: It’s about clear thinking, extensive research, and a combined effort of technology and creativity.

A sport defined by extremes
Mobil 1 race lubricants help make Aston Martin Red Bull Racing even faster, which further amplifies the extremes of every race. In Formula One, the drivers, race cars and lubricants are always pushed to their limits.
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 drivers Max Verstappen and Alex Albon must be stronger to withstand the increased physical demands of every race.
A Formula One race car engine can rev up to 125,000 rpm. The motor oil in a turbo engine endures temperatures of up to 950 degrees Celsius/1742 degrees Fahrenheit and the gearbox experiences up to 4,000 gearshifts per race. Our job isn’t easy under these circumstances. Mobil 1™ lubricants separate and cool more than 4,000 moving parts, withstand engine forces thousands of times greater than the force of gravity and protect against stresses generated from a car with a total output of more than 900 brake horsepower (bhp).
