Its not the boys fault. He's being paid beaucoup bucks so they can use his name. He doesn't concern himself with politics and carbon footprints. He is a race car driver, not an embassador.

I think the Infiniti deal with with the team rather than the driver. They must have some say before their name is attached to a car. The mere fact that he is standing in front of it makes him an ambassador!

It's all Renault's doing. They are after all de-facto owners of Nissan, and it turn Infinity..so want to boost the sagging brands sales numbers using their best promotional asset. It is a bit more than dishonest though...implying that Nissan/Infinity is somehow involved in the F1 engine program.

You guys have obviously not tried an FX before. That thing pulled .85G on a skid-pad, and that was non-Vettel version. That is the best Xver period. Not everybody has the luxury (hint: family) to drive a low slung sports car.

All cars named after drivers are generally naff these days, The Loed C4 & C2...no thanks, unlike the RB5, Series McRae Impreza, Evo VI Tommi Makinen etc
