With the 2014 Formula 1 season starting this weekend at the Australian Grand Prix, ExxonMobil and McLaren will celebrate their 20th Anniversary of technical and commercial partnership. In order to celebrate the milestone, the McLaren Forumla 1 cars will feature a special livery in Australia that will include both Moil 1 and Mobil brands.
"To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Mobil 1's relationship with McLaren, we are looking forward to showcasing a special branding scheme during the first race of the 2014 season," said Artis Brown, global motorsports manager, Mobil 1. "There is a lot of energy entering this race. Not only are we celebrating our 20th anniversary with McLaren, but we will be welcoming Kevin Magnussen to the team. When you combine these elements with the introduction of the new V-6 engine, this should be a very exciting weekend."
Jonathan Neale, Chief Operating Officer and Acting CEO of McLaren Mercedes said, "We are privileged to have worked closely with ExxonMobil over a very successful 20 years and counting. During 332 races together we have achieved four world championships, 78 wins, 229 podium finishes and 76 pole positions, which is testament to our powerful technology partnership. Seeing the Mobil fuels branding alongside Mobil 1 on the MP-4 29 is a great recognition of the relationship's contribution to performance over our two decades together."
Along with this 20-year partnership celebration, ExxonMobil will also celebrate the return of the Mobil fuel brand at 7-Eleven Australia's convenience stores on the Australian east coast metropolitan markets for the first time since the sale of ExxonMobil's retail assets in 2010. Earlier this year, Mobil Oil Australia announced a long-term agreement for the sale of Mobil-branded fuelsat 7-Eleven Australia's convenience stores on Australia's east coast.
ExxonMobil and McLaren began their partnership in 1995, with ExxonMobil proving Mobil 1 synthetic lubricant brand, developing new lubricants and fuels designed for McLaren's race team.
"We are proud to celebrate our relationship with McLaren this weekend and we are looking forward to an exciting season," said Brown.
