A sport defined by extremes
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).
