Following collaboration for the FX Sebastian Vettel Edition, Red Bull's F1 team sponsor Infiniti has given Vettel an important position in the company as from now on he will have a more active role in the development of future models.

Vettel already helped with the Q50 development together with F1 test driver Sebastien Buemi as the two tested and tweaked the car on a series of tracks like the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain and the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.

In an official statement, Sebastian Vettel declared "I am really happy to extend my relationship with Infiniti and become their Director of Performance".
