Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies which seeks to meet the global energy demand in a responsible and sustainable way. Shell aims to make the future today by applying an innovative approach which combines advanced technologies with the power of people’s ingenuity. Safety, the environment and social responsibility are at the heart of the group’s activities. These same considerations guide the 92,000 employees as they work to reinforce Shell’s position as a leader in the oil and gas industry across more than 70 countries and territories. The group produces approximately 3.1 million barrels of oil equivalent every day and in 2014 spent $1.2 billion on research and development and $160 million on voluntary social investment worldwide. The Shell retail business is one of the largest single branded retailers in the world, serving 25 million customers per day. Customers purchase Shell fuels, lubricants and other goods and services within their global network of close to 43,000 Shell service stations in more than 70 countries. This includes Shell V-Power, a fuel that grew out of the long-standing technical partnership between Shell and Ferrari. The Shell V-Power fuel sold on Shell retail sites is 99% the same as that used by Ferrari at Formula 1 races. The partnership between Shell and Ferrari is a source of great pride for both parties; it dates back to 1929 when Enzo Ferrari founded his racing team in Modena and Shell was his partner of choice. Today Shell and Ferrari enjoy one of motorsport’s most successful partnerships, having together amassed 12 Formula One Drivers’ Championships and 10 Constructors’ Championships.
