Performance and racing

Innovation, performance and efficiency continue to drive mobility on and off the track.


The technical partnership with Ferrari provides Shell with an environment to test new fuels and lubricants in extreme conditions, and transfer those learnings from the track to high quality fuels and lubricants developed for motorists around the world.

Shell works hand in hand with Scuderia Ferrari in Formula One and uses its learnings to develop high performance Shell V-Power® premium gasoline and Pennzoil motor oil. The Shell and Pennzoil technical alliance with Team Penske provides us with the ability to test existing and new motor oil technology.

Team Penske uses Pennzoil Ultra™ 0W-40 Full Synthetic motor oil in all of its Indy cars. This is the same motor oil consumers can buy right off-the-shelf. 

Today’s victories and championships are a result of the Pennzoil and Team Penske winning tradition established over many years, highlighted by two Indianapolis 500 victories with driver Rick Mears in 1984 and 1988.
