Ravenol is official lubricant partner of Scuderia AlphaTauri
The Formula 1 team Scuderia AlphaTauri announced a multi-year agreement with Ravenol as its official lubricant partner.
Ravenol is the brand name of the Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH which was founded in 1946 in Werther, Germany, by Hans Triebel.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Ravenol to our team,” said Franz Tost, team principal at Scuderia AlphaTauri. “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.”
Scuderia AlphaTauri is a new name in the Formula 1 World Championship. From 2006 to 2019, the team raced in the blue riband motor sport championship as Scuderia Toro Rosso, 14 seasons during which they launched the careers of many young talents, including Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen, Daniel Ricciardo and Carlos Sainz.
The team has worked with four different engine suppliers: Cosworth, Ferrari, Renault and Honda and scored two wins (Monza 2008 as Toro Rosso and 2020 as AlphaTauri), one pole position (Monza 2008), one second place in Brazil and a third in Germany, both in 2019 as Toro Rosso, and another third place in Azerbaijan in 2021.
The 2020 Formula 1 season was its first as Scuderia AlphaTauri.
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.
“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,” said Martin Huning, Motorsport director, Ravensberger Schmierstoffvertrieb GmbH.
