Infiniti has just unveiled its Red Bull Racing race car that will be used to defend its Formula One Drivers’ and Constructors’ titles in the 2013 Formula One season. By integrating the Japanese automaker’s purple-hued branding with the team’s existing colors, the RB9 reflects a strengthened relationship between Infiniti and Red Bull Racing. Three-time World Formula Champion Sebastian Vettel and nine-time grand-prix winner Mark Webber were on hand at the race car’s debut.
“Our new, increased partnership as Infiniti Red Bull Racing is a key milestone for Infiniti and a clear indication of our commitment to building the brand globally,” said Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company. “While the first 24 months delivered outstanding results for both parties, our deeper involvement, which now sees us truly integrated as one team, will bring significant benefits to our people, processes and technology. We go into the 2013 season and beyond with a shared objective to deliver world-leading performance on the track and the road.”
