Red Bull Switches to ExxonMobil Fuel and Lubricants for 2017

The Red Bull Racing Formula One Team announced on Thursday 1 December 2016 that the team will switch to Mobil fuel and lubricants for the 2017 season.

As part of the deal, the Mobil and Esso brand logos will feature on the cars, drivers overalls and helmets and on the factory in Milton Keynes.

Commenting on the new partnership Red Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner said: “Mobil 1 and Red Bull Racing are two global brands that share a passion for racing, performance and innovation.

“Mobil 1 has been an iconic brand in Formula One for more than 30 years and our new partnership provides us with a unique opportunity to tap into ExxonMobil’s world class expertise.

Before Red Bull ExxonMobil have run their branding on the McLaren team for the past few years in Formula 1. Mobil leaving McLaren opens the door for BP to take the place of Mobil at the Woking based team.
