A while back, I read an article that stated Mercedes and Petronas were making 30-50 more horsepower in their fuel compared to their competitors. I see no reason why they wouldn't be spending money on improving the oil. I would assume they can "free up" power thru a better oil.

I like the Synthium 5000 5w30 (dexos1), even the group3 Synthium 3000 5w40. I tried in my bike last year when there was a promo like 12 bucks a quart in here (kindda half price). Pretty good oils from them.

The oil might be better, to get the dramatic gains in longevity out of the engines. I'd say coatings and metallurgy have as much to do with it. According to this Piston Pin Article says dragster and NASCAR engines get between 4 to 16 times the life due to DLC coatings on piston pins. Like the F1 article in the first post in this thread.

Maybe PAG has invaded the world of racing?
Wondering if F1 (others too) use PAG.

Yep, MolaKule keeps naming candidates for racing oils/additives that could make the difference, a secret weapon in their dry sumps.
