Total hoons dominance in 2011 Formula 1 and WRC season

total_redbull1Once again, Total demonstrates its dominance in motorsports as the proud parter of two of the world's most successful racing teams. Even before the 2011 Formula 1 and World Rally Championship (WRC) season has ended, both the Red Bull Racing Team and Citroën Total World Rally Team have already won the constructor's title. On top of those victories, Sebastian Vettel took home his second Formula 1 driver's world championship with four races to spare, while seven-time WRC champion Sebastien Loeb is on his way to an eighth title with only one round left in this year's calendar.
“Total’s commitment to motorsports allows us to promote not only our research, production and logistics expertise in automotive fuels and in specialty and consumer lubricants, but also gives us the opportunity to continue striving for improvement of our products to stay ahead of the competition. Through our team’s dedication from the lab to the track, Total has been able to deliver some of the best performance products available that has proven its worth through all the championship-winning partnerships we’ve been involved with,” said Total Philippines Corporation President and Managing Director Ernst Wanten. 
The Red Bull Racing Team’s second year-run of dominance in Formula 1 is highlighted by Sebastian Vettel’s back-to-back Driver’s Title and Red Bull's second straight Manufacturer’s Championship. Supported by Total fuels and lubricants, Red Bull’s season was nothing short of a total smackdown of the competition. 
And on the stages of the World Rally Championships, the Citroën Total World Rally Team has been unbeatable. Sebastien Loeb has captured seven consecutive Driver's Championships and six Manufacturer's Title for Citroën.
In more than 50 years of Total's participation in motorsports, the French petroleum company has achieved the pinnacle of automotive racing success on countless occasions and makes another mark in motorsports history through its 2011 Formula 1 and World Rally Championship teams. “Our track record in motorsports speaks for itself,” added Wanten. “The essence of ‘Total Performance’ is about partnerships with teams that speak our language of winning championships.”
