This year's 24 Hours of Le Mans will bring together alliance partners Nissan, Renault and Infiniti in a unique programme which will not only assist cycling legend Sir Chris Hoy's Le Mans debut, but will further boost a young motorsport engineer's career. University of Nottingham student Daniel Sanham has been "living the dream" as the 2015 Infiniti Engineering Academy winner for Europe.
Hier soir, plus de 100 étudiants en ingénierie ont participé à une présentation organisée à l'Université McGill pour découvrir les qualités requises pour participer à l'Infiniti Engineering Academy 2016.

After an inspired intermediate tire choice by Kevin Magnussen in Monaco didn’t bear the fruits it should have, thanks to the intervention of a rival driver, our Dane looks to Montréal to show what he has up his sleeves.

The Renault Sport Formula One Team suffered a disappointing double retirement from an eventful Monaco Grand Prix. Kevin Magnussen showed promising progress with an early swap to intermediate tires after a race start on full wet tires behind the safety car. Kevin's potential was ultimately undone by an unfathomable onslaught from a one-lap-down Daniil Kvyat. He continued to race but subsequently ended up in the barriers again and retired from the Grand Prix. Jolyon Palmer's race was far shorter, ending after aquaplaning into the barriers on the main straight, then into the barriers at Sainte Devote on the seventh lap.
The Infiniti Concept Vision Gran Turismo made its first-ever appearance outside of China at the Copper Box in Olympic Park, London, during the launch of a new game, Grand Turismo Sport. Displayed alongside seven other full-size concept cars, the largest ever gathering of GT concept vision cars in one place, the vehicle provides a visualization of what a high performance Infiniti could look like in the future.
Renault Sport Formula One Team finished a close-packed 13th and 14th in today’s Pirelli Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. A different strategy was employed across the two cars, with Kevin Magnussen changing to a three-stop race and Jolyon Palmer running to two stops. Both drivers were right together for the final laps, with Jolyon finishing just 2.7 seconds ahead of Kevin.
