Never expected Infiniti to take part in Formula 1 racing since when you think about the Infiniti car brand, luxury vehicles come to mind. It would be better if this F1 car was built under Nissan, just my 0.02.

Good read on the Infiniti Formula 1 car below.


To say that Red Bull has found success in Formula One would be a gross understatement. The energy drink concern bought its way into the pinnacle of motorsports and, after several seasons of building up the team that started life as Stewart Grand Prix and then became Jaguar Racing, has already secured itself both championship titles and is well on its way to repeating the feat.

That's the kind of success that Infiniti – whose sister company Renault provides Red Bull's engines – is keen to tap into. And tap into it they have, prominently sponsoring the team, recruiting its top driver Sebastian Vettel as brand ambassador and unveiling a special edition FX crossover here in Frankfurt. And just beside it sat this mockup of the current RB7 grand prix car.

Though it surely doesn't pack all the mechanical bits of the car with which Vettel and his wingman Mark Webber are winning race after race, you wouldn't know it from looking at the machine up close. See for yourself in our high-resolution gallery of live images.

redbull is sponsoring just about anything they can get their hands on these days, talk about marketing at it's finest!
just like you i'm also surprised the F1 car wasn't released under Nissan, i wonder what the reason was. Surely enough most people know Infiniti as a luxury brand not so much for performance.... maybe Infiniti is trying to change that?

it's just a mock up, if they were to make a new F1 car, most likely it's going to be under the Renault name since it is the most appropriate.

i will like to see a Renault F1 car in action, especially with what Renault's sub-brands such as Nissan & Infiniti can do. E.x. the Nissan GT-R!
