The latest Shell animation takes you inside the new Ferrari F10 Formula 1 car.

It explains the new refuelling regulations in 2010, their impact on the design of the car and the challenges the Shell team have had to overcome to deliver the best fuel formulation for the season ahead.

Shell works hand in hand with Scuderia Ferrari to develop Shell V-Power race fuel that suits the rules as well as possible.

In 2010, refueling has been banned during the F1 races, so the cars must take the start with the amount of fuel needed to run the entire race distance, which is a little more than 300km.
