Welcome to Formula One™

engineering for everyone.




The winning formula, proven once again.

What does it take to engineer the fuel that keeps the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM Team winning time and time again? It's a process of continuous engineering. A process that doesn't stop at one win, but keeps going to make it better and better. And that's why it's the winning formula of the two-time world champions. So if you ask, "how far do we go"? the answer is simple: "a little but further each time".


Formula One™ engineering; it works in your car too.

No matter if its getting ahead on track or going further with each tank, our fuels are designed to deliver. The latest Formula OneTM 1.6L turbocharged direct-injection V6 hybrid engines are now more similar to modern vehicle engines than ever before. This means that race fuel technology, is now also road fuel technology.


From superior efficiency in 2014 to superior
acceleration in 2015; the engineering never stops.

The changes in engine specifications for Formula OneTM in 2014 were a great opportunity; to engineer a fuel that delivers superior efficiency, bar none. Fuel and engine development was a collaboration - one could make the other better. Any advance in fuel engineering was used to further develop the capability of the engines and vice versa.

This virtuous cycle of development pushed the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula OneTM team to the 2014 championship. In 2015, the bar was set higher; to deliver superior acceleration. Since 2010, over 200 of our fuel candidates were tested, each one pushing them a little further. Once again, it proved itself, resulting in a second world championship.




Here's how our fuel performed in 2015:

Our experts on the racetrack

As PETRONAS Technical Performance Consultants, Lewis and Nico provide valuable technical feedback. This helps the team continuously learn and develop solutions that deliver the acceleration and efficiency that has helped the team win two consecutive world championships. They help us learn as much as we can from the track. And in turn, we use that knowledge to make the best products, for the road.
