Sebastian Vettel has taken a driving role with a difference after appearing in a music video with R&B star Melanie Fiona.

The Red Bull Racing driver and Infiniti Global Ambassador plays a central part in the official global music video for Fiona's track 'Watch Me Work'.

The high-energy piece, set in downtown New York, sees Vettel play a modern day James Dean character searching to find an underground location for Fiona and her band to perform. Vettel emerges driving a red Infiniti G37 convertible to an enormous warehouse space, powering up the lights and the sound system, and taking control of the volume. Happy with his work, Vettel's character departs the scene and is seen driving into the Manhattan sunrise.

The video is the latest in the 'Infiniti Inspired Performers' series, which sees Red Bull Racing drivers Vettel and Mark Webber collaborating with other top performers in different disciplines. It was shot on location in New Jersey in June when Vettel drove the proposed New Jersey F1 Circuit.

"It was a great experience to shoot a music video, and certainly very different to what I'm used to," he said. "But music is without question an inspiration to many and I'm very proud to have been part of this. I think the lyrics are quite fitting to what we can all do if we put our mind to it."
