New Jersey, New York – June 13th, 2012: Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel made Formula One history on Monday by becoming the first F1 driver to sample the recently announced Grand Prix Circuit in New Jersey.

 

Following an inspired performance in the Canadian Grand Prix yesterday, the Red Bull Racing star and Infiniti Global Brand Ambassador drove the street circuit in an Infiniti IPL G Coupe road car ahead of the highly anticipated Grand Prix of America, due to take place in 2013.

 

  

Vettel was joined by former Grand Prix winner David Coulthard as the pair completed a number of passenger rides against the iconic Manhattan skyline, set to be a major feature of the race next year.

 

  

Leo Hindery, Race Promoter and Keith St. Clair, Director-Infiniti USA Marketing Communications and Media joined Sebastian for a press conference following the demonstration drives.
