Every driver that has finished on the podium in this year’s F1 Championship has been in a car that used UFI Filters.

That’s the claim made today by UFI, which has been supplying the Ferrari F1 team for 26 years.

The filters in question are fuel filters, each one of which is built by UFI to be specific to each F1 team they supply.

“We’re forecasting a clean sweep of F1 success throughout this season,” said an UFI spokesman. “We actually supply filter systems for every F1 team right now.”

Such dominance in motorsport is not new to UFI – it also supplied Audi with fuel filtration systems for their Le Mans winning cars in ’07 and ’08.

Such a commitment to new technology now means that UFI has OEM supply agreements with more than 40 manufacturers, with everyday brands like Focus, Vectra, Astra, Corsa, C-Max and Mazda 3 using UFI’s patented filter technology.
