The Ferrari team has confirmed it will continue its commercial and technical collaboration with fuel-maker Shell until the end of the 2015 season.
The Australian GP in Melbourne will mark the 450th Grand Prix that Ferrari has contested with Shell fuels and lubricants, with the partnership to-date achieving 22 championships (10 Constructors’ and 12 Drivers’) in addition to 154 race victories.
"The extension of our relationship with Shell up to the end of 2015 is yet another step in the Scuderia’s plan to strengthen its long term future and is also a clear sign of continuity and the confidence placed in Ferrari by a company that is a world leader in its field," commented a delighted Stefano Domenicali.
