Grand Prix of Houston

How does the fuel that powers Ferrari’s new 1.6-litre V6 turbo, Formula 1 engine make its way to the pump and into your car? Through our technical partnership with Ferrari, you’ll discover our shared passion for performance and how the research with Ferrari can change your drive.


Heritage runs deep for Shell and Scuderia Ferrari. Our long-standing technical partnership and collaboration has helped drive innovations that help ensure the most performance for drivers on the track and off.

Today, we have a world-class road fuel, Shell V-Power Premium Gasoline, which contains 99% the same types of compounds found in the Shell V-Power race fuel being used by Ferrari in the 2013 FIA Formula One World Championship.
