Red Bull To Use Infiniti Engines

Reigning World Champions Red Bull have announced a new engine deal for the 2011 season.

The team will continue to run the same Renault engines as before, but now rebranded as Infiniti.

Infiniti are an American luxury car company, part owned by both Nissan and Renault, however they are relatively unknown outside of the United States.

The deal will see Red Bull receive their engines for free, whereas last year the team had to pay the standard fee to use a customer engine, the cost of which equates to almost £7 million.

Although from a performance point of view, this deal will have little effect on the team, it will free up some of the budget which can be spent elsewhere.

This deal is expected to be announced officially later in the week.
