Yokohama/Hong Kong/Milton Keynes, UK – Nissan, Infiniti and the Red Bull Racing Formula One team have reached mutual agreements to discontinue the partnership between the two automotive brands and the Formula One team at the end of December this year.

In particular, the agreements entail the following two key components:

  • Infiniti and Red Bull Racing will discontinue their commercial partnership at the end of the 2015 season, one year earlier than originally stipulated.
  • Nissan will not provide light commercial vans to Red Bull Racing anymore.

The partnership between Infiniti, Nissan and Red Bull Racing has been one of the most successful ones in recent years. The team won four consecutive Formula One constructor and driver world championship titles between 2010 and 2013. Infiniti and Red Bull Racing started their commercial partnership in 2011 before Infiniti became the title sponsor of the team in 2013.
