SEBASTIAN VETTEL AND MARK WEBBER GO HEAD TO HEAD AROUND THE NORDSCHLEIFE IN INFINITI ROAD CARS
Red Bull Racing drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber started their German Grand Prix weekend early this week, when they took each other on racing around the famous Nordschleife circuit in high performance Infiniti road cars.
The team mates, currently leading the Formula One World Championship, were given the keys to a 3.7 litre V6 Infiniti M37s and an Infiniti M35h -- Infiniti's most powerful car to date and the fastest accelerating production hybrid in the world. They competed for one high speed lap around the legendary 14 mile (22.8km) track demonstrating truly Inspired Performance.
Mark Webber and his 911 GT2 RS
What do you drive for fun when you race in Formula One for a living? The
answer is the 911 GT2 RS. Formula One star and 911 GT2 RS owner, Mark
Webber, talks about why he picked the most powerful production 911 as his
car of choice and gives a few lucky passengers, on the Porsche tracks at
Silverstone, a lap that they will never forget. To find out how you can

Sebastian Vettel driving GT5 RedbullX1 prototype at Nürburgring GP Course
Find more GT5 videos on http://gtchannel.com. In a world where modern
professional racing is restricted by regulations, the X1 is a machine born
from a fantastic "what if" dream of Gran Turismo: "What would the fastest
racing car on Earth, free of any and all regulations, look like?" And the
only way to experience it is in Gran Turismo 5. Initially the X1 Prototype
was a single-seater canopied prototype wing car with covered front wheels.
Powered by a 1500ps direct-injection V6 Twin turbo, on paper the performance would have been
spectacular, producing a top speed of 400km/h (248.6mp/h) and a maximum
lateral acceleration of 6G. But once Red Bull Racing was brought on board
to be a partner, the X1 really took off. Adrian Newey, master aerodynamic
engineer and Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer, suggested "Fan Car"
technology, a long-held dream of his, be added to the design of the X1
Prototype. A "fan car" is a vehicle having a fan mechanism which forces the
air out from underneath the car to reduce air pressure under the car's
floor. The resulting suction draws the car to the ground surface and
creates a massive amount of downforce. And because it can create downforce
regardless of the vehicle's current speed, it dramatically raises it's
cornering speed capability even in low speed corners. Thanks to the insight
of Mr. Newey, the X1 Prototype design was transformed. A large fan was
added to the rear end of the body to implement the Fan Car technology.
Plus, Newey provided additional input into the the design of the front and
rear wings and rear diffuser, dramatically refining the vehicle's
aerodynamics. As a result, the virtual X1 Prototype was able to achieve an
astonishing level of performance. Its new top speed was 450km/h
(279.6mp/h), with a maximum lateral acceleration reaching up to 8.75G,
pushing the vehicle to the very limits of what a normal human body can

A hell of a ride at the Nordschleife.
Liri Farfus followed countless races closely, always hoping her husband
puts in a great result, coming home without a scratch. However, she wants
to experience a lap of the Nordschleife by herself - and joined Augusto as
a co-driver in the "Green Hell". Was it a very good idea, watch this video

Infiniti reveals FX Sebastian Vettel version at Frankfurt Motor Show
Just six months after the idea first surfaced, the Infiniti FX designed for
reigning Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel was unveiled at the
Frankfurt International Motor Show. What began as a chat between the Red
Bull Racing driver and Infiniti's Chief Creative Officer, Shiro Nakamura,
at the Geneva Show in March is revealed, in concept form, as Infiniti's
fastest car yet and, probably, the most exclusive crossover ever made.
With its sophisticated technology, lightweight components and features such
as Rear Active Steering for maximum agility, the V8 FX50S Premium --
Infiniti's flagship as well as its best-selling model in some markets --
provides the ideal starting point for the FX Sebastian Vettel version.
Changes including increased power, lower weight, derestricted top speed,
longer gearing, increased downforce and lowered and stiffer suspension turn
what is already a sports car among crossovers into a crossover supercar -
the 300km/h reality of the World Champion's vision.
Sebastian Vettel, 2010 Formula One World Champion and Infiniti Global Brand
Ambassador, said: "I have been driving an FX all this year and it is a car
I love. It fits my lifestyle perfectly and is great fun to drive. But of
course, it could go a little faster...
"I drive a lot in Germany on motorways that have no speed limits and have
enjoyed my FX around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Driving at high speed
where safe and legal is part of my life. As well as a higher top speed I
wanted even better stability in my FX, and that meant work on the
aerodynamics. It is a tribute to the excellence of the standard FX that
achieving all my targets required so few changes.
"This is the first road car I have helped develop. Usually I have hundreds
of engineers building one car just for me. So it is fantastic for me to
contribute to the design of a car. The result is an Infiniti I am very
proud to have my name on. It is all I hoped for: 300km/h, plenty of
downforce -- and I can still fit my mountain bike in the back. Plus it is
totally exclusive -- and as an Infiniti driver, that's important."
