Following a second place finish at the Monaco Grand Prix, Formula One driver Sebastian Vettel headed to the Paul Ricard Circuit to test several Infinitis and their competitors.

As part of his role as Infiniti's Director of Performance, Vettel worked with the company's European Dynamic Performance Team to explore the handling, response and steering feel of the various models. The team was also interested in finding out how Vettel liked each of the car's agility and ride comfort.

According to Vettel, “As new Infiniti cars are created, it is really important for us to develop them with their own consistent driving style, so it has been really useful to be able to drive so many cars hard and back-to-back on the same track."

Infiniti says Vettel's feedback will "directly influence" upcoming models including their entry-level compact which is slated to go into production in 2015.
