Who are you? Person – company and position?
Filip Rotgeri, ExxonMobil, EAME OEM Marketing Advisor
Why does your company support the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team?
ExxonMobil is engineering a full suite of Mobil-branded lubricants to help the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team build on its legacy of racing success around the world. ExxonMobil harnesses the lessons from the racetrack to support the continued enhancement and development of its Mobil EV technology and product line to help deliver further, longer and safer driving performance.
What are your goals regarding this partnership?
As a key technical partner for 25 years, ExxonMobil really understands the Porsche performance philosophy. Together we continuously push technical boundaries, aiming for the highest level of performance. We support the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team in outstanding electric car efficiency, helping the team to win in the process.
What was your most formative moment so far in relation to your commitment to the TAG Heuer Porsche Formula E Team?
Rather than pointing out one formative moment, I would rather highlight the consistent performance of our specialized gear box fluid. We are proud to deliver a product that helps deliver efficiency, durability and reduced traction loss race after race.
What is it about the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship that fascinates you?
We are entering a new area of vehicle technology and ExxonMobil is delivering solutions with innovation at their heart. The Porsche 99X Electric car marks our first step into the world of electric motorsports and provides the ultimate proving ground to continue developing high-performing EV fluids. It is great to be an integral part of this new mobility era.
What is your company doing to promote sustainability under the motto #makeitmatter?
Electric vehicle performance isn’t just about using the right EV fluids. Our advanced polymers and materials can help reduce weight and increase durability across the vehicle. The more efficient a vehicle is, the better the electric vehicle range. The equipment and materials on board electric vehicles can make a significant difference to their energy efficiency.
