Red Bull confirms ExxonMobil for 2017

Red Bull has switched fuel and lubricant partners to ExxonMobil for 2017 becoming the second big-name brand to move from McLaren to Red Bull.
Red Bull has switched fuel and lubricant partners to ExxonMobil for the 2017 F1 World Championship, becoming the second big-name brand to move from McLaren to Red Bull after TAG-Heuer became engine title partners this year.

Red Bull has ended its partnership with Renault fuel and lubricant supplier Total to swoop for ExxonMobil from McLaren – which ends a 21-year partnership that yielded four world championship titles – with the oil company's Mobil 1 and Esso brands featuring on the team's clothing and car livery.

“Mobil 1 and Red Bull Racing are two global brands that share a passion for racing, performance and innovation,” Red Bull chief Christian Horner said. “Mobil 1 has been an iconic brand in Formula One for more than 30 years and our new partnership provides us with a unique opportunity to tap into ExxonMobil's world class expertise.

“In addition to welcoming ExxonMobil to the Red Bull Racing stable, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to the technical team at Total, who have made a valuable contribution to our success in Formula One during our partnership.”

Despite losing a second high-profile brand name to Red Bull, McLaren is expected to quickly switch to Castrol as part of its Honda partnership.

Castrol supplies oil and lubricants to Honda in several other motorsport series including MotoGP, the World Touring Car Championship, World Superbikes and British Superbikes.
