Incentive for Sports

Team spirit, overcoming obstacles, perseverance. Practicing sports brings us lessons that go far beyond competition. We invest in various sports, from training athletes to championships. In the London Olympics, for example, we sponsored the Brazilian boxing team, which won three medals and broke a 44-year medaless streak in the sport. We also sponsor social inclusion projects, which help children and youth gain access to educational sports activities.

Get to know our three sports sponsorship programs:

Petrobras Sports & Citizenship Program

Williams and Petrobras have had a history of technological collaboration since 1998, when the team started using the company's fuel. The partnership lasted 11 years. Under the new contract with Williams, the technical collaboration will continue and the two parties will work together with Mercedes to develop not only a new motor vehicle fuel, but also lubricants for use by the team from the 2015 season.

With the new rules for engines going into force, which requires teams to use more efficient products, Petrobras' experience will ensure Williams is well positioned to meet the demands for increased energy efficiency in the competition.

In 2012, we joined automaker Mitsubishi Motors of Brazil to gather together expertise in a technology partnership. In addition to recommending the use of Petrobras fuel by all of the make's models, Mitsubishi started defending our colors with the Mitsubishi Petrobras Team.

With this partnership, we give continuity to the main focus of the Petrobras Motor Sports Program: Test and develop our products. We have already participated in the two main off road competitions on the planet, the Dakar Rally and the "Sertões" Rally! But there is much more to come...

Petrobras, by means of Petrobras Distribuidora, has been the only fuel and lubricant supplier of this category since 1996, when the Formula Truck championship was approved by the Brazilian Auto Racing Confederation (CBA). As is the case with our participation in the other Petrobras Motor Sports Program categories, we use the race tracks as labs to test and improve our products, such as biodiesel (which started being tested in the 2007 season and is now blended at the ratio of 5% into the composition of Diesel Podium B5, which offers the best performance in regaining speed and includes exclusive additives designed to keep the injection system clean) and Lubrax Avante, the category's official lubricant.
