We went to the Technical Center at Villastellone (Torino) to meet Petronas, the brand that, in those years as Olio Fiat name, was the basis of the successes of Delta.

Giuseppe Natoli (General Manager – Petronas Lubricants International), the man who lived the epic story of the Delta as tuner and expert in lubricants, told us about the engines that time and the partnership borning on early stage of engines’ design with “alchemists” of lubricants.

As endeed Adrian Bell (Motorsport Technical Support – Petronas Lubricants Great Britain), following Mercedes in Formula 1, also reminds. Even there the involvement of engineers begins from the early stages of design. Changing materials, in the various competitions and over the years, but not commitment of the people. The function of the lubricants, as always, is to create a thin film to protect the mechanical parts and prevent them from being in contact. Today alloys and the properties of the used metals only change, but the passion remains the same.

Petronas engineers, sharing our passion for racing, they make available to friends of the site answering all the questions!?!!
