Nissan is supplying 80 commercial vehicles to the Red Bull Racing Formula One team for the European leg of the world championship.

The Japanese manufacturer is providing the vehicles for the fourth year running.

A fleet of Primaster vehicles transport people and equipment between races, while NV400, NV200, e-NV200 vans and Navara pick-ups are also stationed at the team’s headquarters in Milton Keynes.

The Red Bull Racing Formula One team is sponsored by Nissan-owned Infiniti, while its racing cars use 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 hybrid engines which are produced by Renault, Nissan’s alliance partner.

"This partnership with Nissan’s LCV arm has brought significant benefits to our team and demonstrated the value of working with the right commercial vehicle partner," said Christian Horner, team principal, Infiniti Red Bull Racing. "One of the biggest challenges we face is managing the logistically complex operations of transporting people and equipment, and we are working with Nissan LCV in 2015."
