As the largest and oldest lubricant producer in Italy, Eni's history is intertwined with the major Italian car brands. For years Eni was a partner of the Ferrari F1 team, of Lancia in the rally sport and Alfa Romeo in the touring car racing with its brand AGIP.

The Formula 1 pit stop is also spectacular. Take on the role of an F1 engineer and see how quickly you can change a Formula 1 tire. Great prizes can be won for the fastest drivers.
