The Mobil 1™ brand is 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 Checo Pérez 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.

A sport defined by extremes
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 Red Bull Racing go faster, which means drivers Max Verstappen and Checo (Sergio) Pérez must be stronger to withstand the increased physical demands of every race.
A Formula One race car engine can rev up to 15,000 rpm. The motor oil in a turbo engine endures temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius/248 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).
