Ahead of the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix, Formula One's Faenza based outfit Scuderia AlphaTauri announced a multi-year deal with RAVENOL as Official Lubricant Partner.
German-based Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH is well-known for developing high-performance products for the automotive sector and is an established name in the motorsport industry. Through their large portfolio including lubricants, hydraulic oils, greases and other industrial supplies they will be able to support the team in various areas from factory to flag. The RAVENOL logo will be displayed on the nose of the new AT03, as well as on the driver’s overalls and team kit.
“It is a pleasure to welcome RAVENOL to our team”, Franz Tost commented. “It is often overlooked that we, as a Formula 1 team, are not only racing our cars on track but also producing the individual components of these high-tech machines. We operate our own machine shop here in Italy and use a variety of industrial products, this means we rely on the know-how of a strong partner and RAVENOL is able to supply us with a wide range of products to help us extract the maximum performance.”
Martin Huning, Motorsport Director of Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH, said: “We are looking forward to working together with Scuderia AlphaTauri and supplying them with products for the upcoming season. For us, motorsport is the perfect platform to develop our products and show their benefits in the most demanding conditions. Furthermore, it underlines our global presence, with operations in over 100 markets.
