CAR magazine deputy editor Mike Fourie recently attended Shell V-Power Fuels' Journey from Lab to Track experience in Germany and Belgium. This 90-second highlights clip details of his visit to the Shell Technology Centre in Hamburg, with commentary from John Lambert, Shell Technology manager for fuels implementation, as well as Mike Evans – Shell’s Formula One Fuels Project Leader who’s been pivotal in the Scuderia’s grand prix exploits since 1999.
