Red Bull Racing has announced that it is refining its performance in 2017 by partnering with fuel and lubricant giant ExxonMobil.

As a team partner, official fuel partner, official lubricant partner, and official motor oil partner of the team in 2017, ExxonMobil will provide Red Bull with leading-edge Mobil 1 lubricants and Synergy Race Fuels.

ExxonMobil will deliver engineering support to develop next-generation lubricants designed to improve race car engine and gearbox performance.

The company's Mobil 1 and Esso brands will feature on the cars, driver overalls and helmets, as well as being displayed at the Red Bull Racing Factory in Milton Keynes, and at trackside events.

"Mobil 1 and Red Bull Racing are two global brands that share a passion for racing, performance and innovation," said Christian Horner. "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."

"In addition to welcoming ExxonMobil to the Red Bull Racing stable, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the technical team at TOTAL, who have made a valuable contribution to our success in Formula One during our partnership," he added.

"Red Bull Racing provides a dynamic platform to showcase our world-class lubricant and fuels technologies," said Matt Bergeron, vice-president of marketing for ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company. "We are excited about building a relationship with Red Bull's excellent young drivers who are establishing reputations as competitive racers and who will help showcase our brands to generations of consumers."

The new ExxonMobil and Red Bull Racing partnership extends the Mobil 1 synthetic lubricant brand's successful 38-year involvement in Grand Prix racing. Mobil 1 has lubricated more than 100 Grand Prix-winning cars, and has won six Formula One world drivers' championships and five Formula One world constructors' championships since entering the sport in 1978.
