Infiniti will become Red Bull Racing's title sponsor for the next four seasons

Japanese carmaker Infiniti has confirmed it will increase its sponsorship stake in the team to become Red Bull Racing’s title sponsor for the next four seasons. The team will be known as ‘Infiniti Red Bull Racing’.

The announcement comes fresh off the back of Sebastian Vettel securing his third successive Drivers’ Championship title, along with the Milton Keynes outfit winning its third Constructors’ Championship crown on the trot.

Infiniti – co-owned by Nissan, which is itself owned by the team’s engine supplier, Renault – joined the team in 2011 as a minor sponsor, and it was widely believed at the time that this would eventually extend to a greater financial and technical partnership, including a rebranding of the outfit’s Renault engines.

Infiniti has been a minor sponsor of the team since 2011“Red Bull Racing and Infiniti have been working on a number of initiatives since the start of our relationship in 2011,” Red Bull Racing team principal Christian Horner said.

“During that time, Infiniti has demonstrated significant technical prowess and I’ve been impressed by the depth of the wider engineering capabilities of the Nissan Motor Company.

“Infiniti has leveraged their involvement with Red Bull Racing and Formula 1 extremely effectively to become much better known in a short space of time. These two attributes make Infiniti the ideal title and technical partner for Red Bull Racing.”

The team will forge a greater relationship with Infiniti on a number of key technical projects as it works towards the implementation of the new sporting and technical regulations set to come into play in 2014.
