SHELL FORMULA ONE TEAM FERRARI READY FOR ROUND THREE IN ALBERT PARK

SHELL FORMULA ONE TEAM FERRARI READY FOR ROUND THREE IN ALBERT PARK

29.03.2006: SHELL FORMULA ONE TEAM FERRARI READY FOR ROUND THREE IN ALBERT PARK



FUEL

· The racing demands of Albert Park Circuit, Melbourne, are very similar to those at the first two races of the season in Bahrain and Malaysia. Shell is providing Scuderia Ferrari with the same blend of Shell V-Power ULG 59L/9.

· Australia is one of the furthest races from Shell Global Solutions in Chester (UK), where the products provided to Ferrari for Grand Prix racing originate. With this in mind, Shell has adopted a prudent approach and will use fuel that already has a well-proven race record.

 

ENGINE LUBRICANT

· Shell Helix SL-0932 will be retained for this race.

· Formula One is coming to Australia at a slightly later time than normal. As the Australian season is getting deeper into autumn, the temperatures could be slightly cooler than Albert Park’s usual weekend at the beginning of March.

· However, Melbourne weather can also be unpredictable. Shell will be using a formulation well suited to the Ferrari engine. Following the engine changes in Malaysia it is also important to maintain product continuity.

 

SHELL FACT

· During a race weekend, Shell engineers will analyse Ferrari’s fuel and oil up to 40 times.
