25 March, 2010
Mar.25 (YF1) Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro announced the renewal of its technical and commercial agreement with Shell for the next five years.
“The extension of our relationship with Shell up to the end of 2015 is yet another step in the Scuderia’s plan to strengthen its long term future and is also a clear sign of continuity and the confidence placed in Ferrari by a company that is a world leader in its field,” commented Stefano Domenicali.
“Shell has been with the Scuderia from the year it was established in 1929 and has played a significant role in many of our successes. Striving for excellence, a passion for competition, team work, technology transfer from track to street: these are the values we share with Shell and which characterise what is a unique partnership in the history of motor sport,” added the Ferrari team principal.
The announcement of the renewal coincides with the 450th Formula 1 Grand Prix that the Scuderia has contested using Shell fuels and lubricants. To date, the partnership has garnered 22 world titles – 10 Constructors’ and 12 Drivers’ – along with 154 race wins.
