Marina Bay, 22 September – There was an exchange of gifts today in the Singapore pit lane, as part of the celebrations to commemorate a partnership between Shell and Scuderia Ferrari that has now reached its five hundredth Grand Prix. Regarded as one of the best examples of a technical and commercial relationship, its history dates back to 1920, when Enzo Ferrari was still a racing driver. Today, in pit lane, in front of the Scuderia garage, Shell Downstream Director Mark Williams presented Scuderia Team Principal Stefano Domenicali, along with Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, with a specially commissioned painting by Michael Turner of the Ferrari 125 F1, that took part in the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix, seen alongside this year’s F2012. Reflecting the long history of the partnership, in return, the Ferrari men presented Shell with a photo album made out of carbon, featuring photos that cover the period of the collaboration from its beginnings to the present day
