We invest more than 21,000-man hours a year from over 50 technical staff to create the race fuels and lubricants that power the team to success on the track.


Every Ferrari that leaves its famed factory is fuelled by Shell, with our V-Power formula not just restricted to the elite machines that race across Interlagos or Silverstone.

Meanwhile, Shell Helix Ultra race lubricant is designed to deliver outstanding performance and protection, even in Formula 1™ engines running at temperatures in excess of 1,000oC.


Yet as well as helping Scuderia Ferrari rack up the podium finishes on the track, our Innovation Partnership gives us the perfect testing ground for the fuels and lubricants we offer drivers on the road.


That’s why the Shell V-Power race fuel used by Scuderia Ferrari contains 99% of the same type of compounds as the Shell V-Power NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline you find at your local Shell station.
