Max Verstappen clinched the 2021 World Championship on the final lap, of the final race – what an epic victory!
Red Bull Racing attacked the 2021 season all guns ablaze, with Max sweeping to victory in five of the first nine races! Red Bull had clearly stepped things and had the pace to take it to the all-conquering Silver Arrows.
Early in the 2021 season, a shellshocked Lewis Hamilton suggested on several occasions Red Bull may have introduced illegal engine upgrades.
However Red Bull’s Team Principle, Christian Horner, along with engine supplier Honda, acknowledged one of the keys to the RB16B’s championship-winning performance was the introduction of a revolutionary, new Mobil 1™ oil.
“We have a new oil from ExxonMobil,” stated Horner. “So, I think they can take all the credit for the fact that Lewis keeps pointing at our engines. The engines are the same specification.”
ExxonMobil’s Global Motorsport Technology Manager, Tomek Young added, “ExxonMobil delivered a revolutionary new oil – that has helped push theteam forwards. New components were incorporated as they were found to offer many benefits, including stronger interactions with metal surfaces and lower friction, helping deliver maximum power while offering protection and fuel efficiency. These benefits translate into an ability to run the engine across a wider range of operating conditions and not be wound back.”
This is the advantage of Mobil 1 being a technical partner – not just a brand sponsor.
Same story for 2021 Repco Bathurst 1000 victors, Mostert and Holdsworth. They were blisteringly fast all weekend, and while this was a result of many, many factors coming together, as WAU’s lubricant supplier, Mobil 1 yet again played a critical role in the #25 WAU Commodore’s dominant victory in the ‘Great Race’.
Congratulations, Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing, plus Chaz Mostert, Lee Holdsworth, WAU and every other Mobil 1 technical partner across the world of motorsport who visited victory lane in 2021. For 2022, things are only going to get better!
