Grand Prix racing – The Mobil 1™ Grand Prix mechanic
Mobil 1 technicians provide immediate feedback to the team, using our ExxonMobil Analytical Center. The technician works with an oil analyzer,
which can measure up to 18 different elements in tenths of parts per million. We are able to accurately measure the particles in the engine oil, gear oil
and hydraulic oil. In addition, we’re able to give highly detailed information back to the team on the health and condition of the engine and gearbox, improving reliability and performance.
