CONTINUING the partnership created last season between Red Bull Racing F1 and Infiniti, the contract to supply Red Bull Racing with Nissan light commercial vehicles and related services has been extended for the 2012 season.

To support the transportation needs of Red Bull Racing at its factory in Milton Keynes, UK and for all operations throughout the 2012 Formula One season, Nissan will supply a fleet of over 30 vehicles, including the award-winning NV200 and the new NV400.

Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing's team principal, said: "Within such a highly pressured and challenging environment as F1, we need reliable partners taking care of all our versatile transportation needs all over the world. With the long standing relationship we have had with Infiniti and Nissan we looked to Nissan for its support with supplying our light commercial vehicle fleet and we are looking forward to working with them. Extensive travel is part and parcel of F1, and our material, staff and guest transportation are an essential part of our successful operations. The Nissan NV200 and NV400 will be the perfect vehicles for us and will be vital in supporting the team."

James Douglas, corporate sales director of Nissan Motor, said: "It is a great honour to be chosen as an official supplier for the F1 Red Bull team. We are looking forward to providing a helping hand to the team throughout the 2012 season."
