Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, 31st August 2001: McLaren and ExxonMobil are pleased to announce that their Partnership has been extended. ExxonMobil's Mobil 1 brand will continue as a Technology Partner of West McLaren Mercedes supplying the Formula One team with unleaded performance fuels and fully synthetic motor oils and lubricants.

"We at ExxonMobil are delighted that we will continue our successful long-term partnership with McLaren and Mercedes-Benz,' said Steve Pryor, President of ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialities Company. 'Formula One gives our scientists the opportunity to prove new ideas which lead to performance enhancements in Mobil 1. We look forward to building on the successes we've achieved with the team and to an exciting future together."

"Over the years Mobil 1 has progressively delivered a measurable performance enhancement to our on-track performance but in some ways it's the recognition of the business values and benefits stemming from our Partnership that makes the extension more satisfying,' said Ron Dennis, Chairman and CEO, TAG McLaren Group.

So far the Mobil 1 and McLaren Partnership has competed in 113 Grands Prix, claimed two Formula One drivers' Championships and one Constructors World Title, 33 pole positions, 29 race victories, 38 fastest laps and 83 podium finishes.
