For a brief moment in the early 1980s, Tommy Byrne was arguably the world’s greatest driver – the motor racing equivalent of George Best and Muhammad Ali rolled into one. His rise was meteoric and his fall spectacular. Crash and Burn is his story – how he became motor racing’s bad boy, who rose from humble beginnings in Dundalk, Ireland to be one of the hottest prospects of early 1980s Formula 1, mentioned in the same breath as Ayrton Senna, and how it all went wrong.

”We arrived in Paris first, only changing two wheels,” went a telegram sent from the French capital in August 1907 by Prince Scipione Borghese, who won the Peking to Paris race at the wheel of a Pirelli-equipped Itala with a huge advantage over his rivals. For that time, on those roads, it was an exceptional result achieved after 16,000 gruelling kilometres that punished drivers, cars and tires. It was also an adventure that brought the public’s attention to the performance and safety of a product that would soon become recognised by the famous Pirelli logo that is now a well-known sight all over the world.

"To join people like Prost, Fangio and Michael is unbelievable," said Vettel. "I think this is one of the best days in my life so far. There are so many that I have to thank but one of them is Infiniti. Infiniti's increased involvement this year has helped support my efforts too so I'm glad I can reward them with another World Championship. It's been a busy year for me, developing Infiniti's road cars, and as our relationship is continuing to grow this is a key moment I'm glad we can all share."
Sebastian Vettel and Infiniti Red Bull Racing have dominated much of the 2013 season, scoring ten Grand Prix victories and 18 podium finishes to wrap up both titles with three Grands Prix remaining this season.
"Sebastian and Infiniti Red Bull Racing both represent perfectly our brand's vision of performance, precision, passion and provocation," commented Johan de Nysschen, President of Infiniti Motor Company, Ltd. "It is these traits that led to us deepening our partnership with them at the beginning of the year and we are proud to have played a major role in their incredible season."
"In our first year with Infiniti as title partner there's been a great deal of work put in on and off-track to identify the areas where we can learn from each other and bring benefit to both parties," said Christian Horner, Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team Principal. "I'm exceptionally pleased that we can both share in this success."
Infiniti deepened its partnership with the team at the start of the season, becoming Title and Vehicle Performance Partner of the renamed Infiniti Red Bull Racing. Collaborating ever-more closely across people, process and technology, the relationship has seen the Formula One team adopt areas such as materials technology from Infiniti, which in turn benefitted from the team's and Sebastian Vettel's input into vehicles such as the FX Vettel Edition and the new Infiniti Q50.
de Nysschen continued: "So far this year, Sebastian has had direct and invaluable input into the development of the Q50 and the new Q30. As the 2014 Formula One season brings new technical challenges, we look forward to working with Sebastian as Infiniti's Director of Performance and Infiniti Red Bull Racing in pursuit of automotive excellence on the road and the track."About Infiniti in Formula One: Infiniti, the premium automotive brand, starts the 2013 season as Title Partner and Vehicle Performance Partner of Infiniti Red Bull Racing. With a deepened technical collaboration across people, process and technologies, an 'open door' approach is enabling both sides to access a pool of innovation, new technologies and R&D resources in the shared pursuit of precision and performance.
Since the partnership's inception in 2011 it has already seen the launch of the Infiniti FX Vettel Edition and product development input from Sebastian Vettel and test driver Sebastien Buemi for the all-new Infiniti Q50 premium sports saloon. Infiniti continues to be the most visible automotive brand in Formula One, and the deepened partnership will ensure closer alignment on an increasing number of future team collaborations.Twitter: www.twitter.com/InfinitiGP // YouTube: www.youtube.com/InfinitiGP // Facebook: www.facebook.com/InfinitiGP // Pinterest: www.pinterest.com/InfinitiGP // For the latest news about Infiniti please visit: www.infinitinews.com
