Petronas Track Laboratory closely follows the team's fluid technology
Petronas, one of the world's leading oil companies and pioneers of the mineral oil market, also contributes significantly to the success of Mercedes-AMG Petronas, which rose to the 4th place by catching Lotus in the ranking of the most champion teams of all time with the last championship. Petronas Track Laboratory established specifically for motor sports; Mercedes-AMG analyzes samples of Petronas Primax fuel, Petronas Syntium engine oil and Petronas Tutela functional fluids to monitor engine and transmission health and performance of Petronas vehicles. The mobile facility created provides engineers with full diagnostic support by carrying sensitive laboratory conditions to the paddock area, while providing significant contributions to the runways by monitoring fluid behavior. Led by Petronas Liquid Engineers Stephanie Travers and En De Liow, the lab further improves the speed and efficiency before each race and the turnaround time to get liquid test results.
Up to 200 oil tests are done before each race
The fuel and lubricant development programs Petronas has been conducting since 2010 have brought many successes to the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team, while at the same time ensuring the team to experience its most successful periods in Formula 1 history. The Petronas Track Laboratory is the physical reflection of this program on the Formula 1 paddock.

The first among the works of the team; Each race week for gas chromatography analysis, we take out a sample of the Petronas Primax fuel barrel and forward it to the FIA.
After starting the racing cars, the relevant Petronas fluid engineer analyzes Petronas Syntium engine oil and Petronas Tutela transmission oil in the Energy Recovery System using a spectrometer. Fluids contain very important clues to give a snapshot of what is happening in the engine and transmission. Particles in the oil, a sign of engine breakdown, give early warning to the crew of any problems. During the three-day track event in each race week, 65 engine oil and 30 transmission oil samples are taken. In addition to the samples taken at the spot checks, about 200 oil tests are carried out every race week. Meanwhile, Petronas track engineers take over 30 fuel samples.
