The year 2014 also marks the 20 anniversary of the brand’s relationship with the McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 Team. Together, the Mobil 1- McLaren technology partnership has amassed an impressive 336 races, 231 podiums (top-three finishes), 78 victories and four world championships. “At 40 years young,” says Aldred, “Mobil 1 continues to offer the best in engine protection and performance – from everyday vehicles to the world’s most powerful high-performance sports cars.” th
