Buemi will also be available on the Infiniti hospitality stand for a question and answer session regarding the Formula One season so far and what we can expect going forward while the Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge prototype will be at the "First Glance" display area close to the start line so guests can get up close and personal with the Infiniti concept.

After appearing at the North American International Auto Show as a static design concept, the Q50 Eau Rouge has since progressed and was at the Geneva Motor Show with its thoroughbred V6 engine installed. In April, during the Beijing motor show, Infiniti announced it has reached a further step forward towards a production version with a full working prototype now undergoing tests and evaluation.

The most powerful Infiniti ever has not been confirmed for production, but Infiniti will continue to listen to feedback from potential customers.
