Infiniti Red Bull Racing 2014
Formula For Success
Formula 1™ is the most advanced, most watched, most expensive, and most exclusive racing series on earth–and for the last four years it has been dominated by Infiniti Red Bull Racing.*
This partnership matches Infiniti’s vast engineering and R&D resources with Red Bull’s racing experience and arguably the world’s greatest driver, Sebastian Vettel. The results: unrivaled performance both on and off the track.
Director of Performance
Date of birth: July 3, 1987
Hometown: Heppenheim, Germany
Four-time and defending F1™ World Drivers' Champion Sebastian Vettel joined Red Bull in 2009 at just 22 years old. The German-born prodigy became the youngest ever World Drivers’ Champion runner-up that year, and followed that up the next season by becoming the youngest driver ever to take the top prize.
He was named Infiniti’s Director of Performance in 2013.
Infiniti Red Bull Racing's newest driver
Date of birth: July 1, 1989
Hometown: Perth, Western Australia
Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo has been driving Formula 1™ since 2011, first with HRT and then with Red Bull’s sister team, Toro Rosso. This year he made the jump to the big squad, taking over for fellow countryman Mark Webber, who retired from F1™ before the 2014 season.
Daniel’s impact has been immediate. He’s quickly become a fan favorite with his intense, determined driving style, multiple podium finishes, and his very first F1™ victory in June of 2014 at the Canadian Grand Prix.
