Infiniti and Red Bull Racing to part ways in 2016

It’s been a tempestuous year for Red Bull. The team’s performance this year was disappointing to say the least. Then there was the drama that ensued after Red Bull announced that it had severed ties with Renault as an engine supplier as none of the other engine builders were willing to supply the team. Now, just after the team announced that it would be running Tag Heuer branded engines in 2016, another big announcement has been made, this time by title sponsor Infiniti, who have decided to part ways with the championship-winning team, starting 2016.

The short press statement from Infinity announces that both companies have mutually decided to part ways at the end of 2015, one year before the original contract expires. There will now be no commercial partnership between the two and Nissan will also no longer provide light commercial vans to Red Bull Racing.
