Triple Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel has just signed on as Infiniti’s Director of Performance.
What this means is that the German will play a much larger and important role in the development of future Infiniti models.
Infiniti’s President Johan de Nysschen said, “Sebastian’s talent and ability behind the wheel is unquestionable and his role in developing Infiniti vehicles has already proven invaluable. How many premium automotive brands can honestly say its vehicles have been developed alongside a triple World Champion? As our technical collaboration with Infiniti Red Bull Racing continues to deepen, so does our relationship with Sebastian who will be crucial to the development of our future vehicle line-up, ensuring Infiniti stands for passion and performance in a brand that challenges the status quo.”
“I am really happy to extend my relationship with Infiniti and become their Director of Performance” said Sebastian Vettel. “Helping to develop the Infiniti Q50 was a very different type of driving duty for me but I approached it in exactly the same way as I do my Formula One car. I am looking forward to working closely with Infiniti in developing more of their road cars into the future.”
