Shell and Ferrari have ­extended the oldest partnership in Formula One for a further five years, both sides announced Sunday.

The Anglo-Dutch oil company's relationship with the Italian team dates back to before the world championship started in 1950, with Shell sponsoring Enzo Ferrari as a driver even in the late 1920s.

"We are happy to have ­extended our collaboration with Shell," said Ferrari principal Maurizio Arrivabene in a statement. "Historically, engines are the cornerstone of our company and that means all the work we do with Shell starts from our history as an engine builder."
