That year the petroleum company made a 30-minute movie about the grand prix - this is back when the track was called the Francorchamps National Circuit, near the town of Spa, and a list of its important corners didn't include a mention of Eau Rouge - where it was doing the same thing it still does today: working on fuels and lubricants via its technical partnership with <a /ferrari/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/">Ferrari</a>.<br /><br />To create the mood, journalists were invited to a vintage cinema where they mingled with Ferrari F1 drivers <a /tag/fernando+alonso/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/fernando+alonso/">Fernando Alonso</a> and <a /tag/felipe+massa/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/felipe+massa/">Felipe Massa</a> and other extras in period fifties gear, and watched a screening of <em>1955 Belgian Grand Prix</em>.
