EXXONMOBIL CELEBRATES ITS 1,000TH GRAND PRIX

ExxonMobil is going back to its heritage look to celebrate its participation in Formula One at this weekend’s Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, the 1,000th World Championship race.

ExxonMobil are one of only a few brands to have been involved in Formula One since the very first World Championship race at the 1950 British Grand Prix, from which Esso and Mobil have powered some of the greatest teams and drivers through the decades.

Entering the sport in 1979, Mobil 1 went on to power multiple teams and drivers to World Championship success, becoming one of the sports leading motor oils. Today, it supplies race-winning lubricants to the Team.

This weekend in China, the RB15 will race with the original Mobil and Esso logos that will also feature on Max and Pierre's helmets and race suits. The team garage will also display the heritage logos.

At trackside today, Max and Pierre, together with Christian Horner, and current ExxonMobil trackside technicians, went back to the 1950's for a themed photo alongside the RB15 race car. The ExxonMobil technicians will be wearing their heritage uniforms all weekend.
