Vettel’s role will be to provide feedback to engineers on the development of new models. Infiniti says that the first model he gave his opinion on was the new Q50. He and Sebastien Buemi drove pre-production Q50s in Japan, around the Nürburgring and at the Circuit de Catalunya.

"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,” said Infiniti President Johan de Nysschen
