He stated that ExxonMobil is excited about building a relationship with Red Bull’s excellent young drivers who are establishing reputations as competitive racers and who will help showcase the Mobil brand to generations of consumers.

The 2017 season promises to be an exciting one for Formula 1, regarded by many as the ultimate competition within global motorsport, with a new series owner keen to expand the fan base from an already impressive 1.5 billion viewers in more than 170 countries. There will also be new cars, designed to increase the speed and race spectacle, of course while ensuring that the drivers and teams maintain a strong focus on safety.
