Infiniti and Renault Alliance is an Epic One. And Here Is Why!
Although Infiniti made a successful involvement in Formula One, the team definitely doesn't want to stop here. For the 2016 season, the brand decided to be a technical partner to the recently-created Renault Sport Formula One team. And by all it appears like this will be a powerful alliance: imagine blended product of Infiniti's energy resource and Renault's drivetrain systems. Hopefully this will really be the beginning of something incredible in the world of Formula 1.
As we know, Infiniti has a reputation of hybrid manufacturer with impeccable systems and style, one more time proving it with the demonstration of the 3.5-liter hybrid power unit. Also, the Q70 sedan, the lucky vehicle, geared with that engine is rated to be the fastest accelerating hybrid vehicle so far. Incredible, right?
Also, Renault Sport Formula One team will use Infiniti's systems and knowledge, as some of Infiniti's specialists move from Japan to France in order to support the French team and manufacturer. And meanwhile, Infiniti will be using the experience from the F1 ERS system for further improvements for its hybrid powertrains.
As you might know, Infiniti entered the Formula One world in 2011 as partner of Red Bull Racing team and was one of the main sponsors until 2013 season. And with the tons of gained experience, Infiniti now makes confident steps in technically supporting Renault Sports Formula One team.
