A sport defined by extremes

Mobil 1 race lubricants help make Red Bull Racing even faster, which further amplifies the extremes of every race. In Formula One, the drivers, race cars and lubricants are always pushed to their limits.
Features of a racing car

Ever wonder what 5 Gs feel like?

The latest Formula One race season brings new challenges. Wider tires + more aerodynamic downforce = more speed, more Gs and more stress on the drivers. Mobil 1 lubricant technology Red Bull Racing go faster, which means drivers Max Verstappen and Checo (Sergio) Pérez must be stronger to withstand the increased physical demands of every race.

A Formula One race car engine can rev up to 15,000 rpm. The motor oil in a turbo engine endures temperatures of up to 120 degrees Celsius/248 degrees Fahrenheit and the gearbox experiences up to 4,000 gearshifts per race. Our job isn’t easy under these circumstances. Mobil 1™ lubricants separate and cool more than 4,000 moving parts, withstand engine forces thousands of times greater than the force of gravity and protect against stresses generated from a car with a total output of more than 900 brake horsepower (bhp).
