Shell and Scuderia Ferrari

Shell and Scuderia Ferrari will work hand-in-hand to define how fuels can be developed for the future, including advanced sustainable biofuels and synthetic liquid fuels, both of which are being explored to help meet the Formula One™ goal of fully sustainable fuels in the Formula One™ car. These learnings and technologies, put to the test on the track, could eventually be used to reduce emissions from road transport.
