Sebastian Vettel Stars in Music Video
August 30 – Hong Kong – Two-time Formula One World Champion Sebastian Vettel took a star turn featuring as a special guest in a music video with U.S. R&B artist, Melanie Fiona.
Vettel shot the music video with the double grammy-winning star on location in New Jersey, when he drove the proposed New Jersey F1 circuit.
The collaboration is the latest in the ‘Infiniti Inspired Performers’ series which will see Red Bull Racing team mates Vettel and Mark Webber swapping skills with other like-minded inspired performers who are leaders in their respective fields.
The Infiniti Global Ambassador plays a modern day James Dean character in the music video ‘Watch Me Work’, searching to find an edgy underground location for Fiona and her band to perform. Vettel emerges from a red Infiniti G37 convertible with Fiona and goes on to take control of the lighting and sound system, as Fiona belts out the high-energy piece accompanied by her band.
Vettel then took the Canadian-born musician on a lap around the New Jersey circuit, where she got a glimpse into his high-performance world and a taste of being spun around at high speed.
“It’s not often you get the chance to be driven by an F1 World Champion and when the opportunity came up to have Seb driving me in the video I was like, yes please!” said Fiona.
