Since 2015 a research cooperation with the fuel specialist Shell and the luxury car manufacturer Ferrari S.p.A. is established focusing on the research of Formula 1 racing fuels. This cooperation aims at two major targets: Achieving excellence in performance and meeting the requirements of the regulations in terms of sustainability and emission reduction as given by the federation Internationale de l’Automobile.

In order to obtain these results, we use well established research facilities and further we create customer specific solutions enabling an environment and creating results directly suited to the complex needs of modern F1 hybrid engines.
