SEBASTIAN VETTEL AND INFINITI RED BULL RACING SEAL FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN INDIA

With three races left of a 19-round 2013 Formula One season Infiniti Red Bull Racing have sealed the double, becoming consecutive four-time Constructors' World Champions and claiming the Drivers' World Championship crown at the hands of Sebastian Vettel, who becomes the youngest consecutive four-time winner in the sport's history.

"To join people like Prost, Fangio and Michael is unbelievable," said Vettel. "I think this is one of the best days in my life so far. There are so many people that I have to thank but one of them is Infiniti. Infiniti's increased involvement this year has helped support my efforts too so I'm glad I can reward them with another World Championship. It's been a busy year for me, developing Infiniti's road cars, and as our relationship is continuing to grow this is a key moment I'm glad we can all share."

Sebastian Vettel and Infiniti Red Bull Racing have dominated much of the 2013 season, scoring ten Grand Prix victories and 18 podium finishes to wrap up both titles with three Grands Prix remaining this season.

"Sebastian and Infiniti Red Bull Racing both represent perfectly our brand's vision of performance, precision, passion and provocation," commented Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company, Ltd. "It is these traits that led to us deepening our partnership with them at the beginning of the year and we are proud to have played a major role in their incredible season."

"In our first year with Infiniti as title partner there's been a great deal of work put in on and off-track to identify the areas where we can learn from each other and bring benefit to both parties," said Christian Horner, Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team Principal. "I'm exceptionally pleased that we can both share in this success."

Infiniti deepened its partnership with the team at the start of the season, becoming Title and Vehicle Performance Partner of the renamed Infiniti Red Bull Racing. Collaborating ever-more closely across people, process and technology, the relationship has seen the Formula One team adopt areas such as materials technology from Infiniti, which in turn benefitted from the team's and Sebastian Vettel's input into vehicles such as the FX Vettel Edition and the new Infiniti Q50.


De Nysschen continued: "So far this year, Sebastian has had direct and invaluable input into the development of the Q50 and the new Q30. As the 2014 Formula One season brings new technical challenges, we look forward to working with Sebastian as Infiniti's Director of Performance and Infiniti Red Bull Racing in pursuit of automotive excellence on the road and the track."
