The Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One ™ (F1) team has taken a new step in motorsport history by winning its 8th consecutive FIA Formula One ™ World Constructors’ Championship.
Powered by PETRONAS Fluid Technology SolutionsTM, the Silver Arrows holds a 100% record of victories in the turbo hybrid era, having won all eight Manufacturers’ World Championship titles since 2014.
As a title and technical partner, PETRONAS co-designs its Fluid Technology Solutions ™ with the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One ™ and Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains (HPP) team to ensure that fluid formulations are suitable for the powertrain Mercedes. . This gives the team the best possible performance, reliability and efficiency possible – especially in such a tight title fight this season – helps find the marginal gains that give the team an edge on the right track.
Giuseppe D’Ariggo, Managing Director and CEO of PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI) Group, said: A team of engineers, chemists and experts from PLI and Mercedes-AMG who strive to provide lubricants , oils and fluids that keep essential parts of F1 cars functioning at peak performance.
With proven success on the track, the same expertise has been used to optimize the PETRONAS Syntium range of lubricants and has led to the development of the PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTech ™ technology for the everyday vehicle, which offers customers better performance. and greater efficiency thanks to the following:
1) Excellent thermal management
Most internal combustion engines (ICE) only convert about 35% of the fuel into energy and the remaining energy will dissipate as heat. Not only will this damage a car’s engine, this wasted energy is not sustainable for our planet. However, PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTech ™ technology allows better engine temperature management and protects vital car components.
2) Greater efficiency for more sustainable driving
PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTech ™ technology delivers up to 3% fuel savings and lower emissions * – for cleaner, more profitable and efficient mobility, even when the oil is aged – lubricating moving parts to protect and reducing wear, and removing heat generated by friction and combustion.
3) A lifetime of efficient performance
PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTech ™ technology provides exceptional protection against oxidation causing oil thickening – 68% better than the industry standard * – to maintain stable performance throughout the oil change interval and to maximize engine efficiency.
4) Reinforced engine protection for lower maintenance costs
With its superior ability to resist damaging engine heat, PETRONAS Syntium with CoolTech ™ technology is 37.8% more effective in protecting critical parts from wear *, resulting in longer engine life and lower costs. reduced maintenance.
