Sebastian Vettel returned to victory lane this week, behind the wheel of the new Infiniti Q50 in a celebrity race in downtown Shanghai.

Chinese movie star Jimmy Lin, snooker player Pan Xiaoting and renowned businessman Yao Jinbo were amongst the names racing Vettel, who emerged victorious in all but one of the five races.

Two Infiniti driving competition winners also got to race against Vettel to mark the launch of the car in China.

“I had a lot of fun competing against Jimmy, Pan and Yao in the Q50,” said the four-time Formula 1 World Champion. “I knew they were going to be quick and they were impressive behind the wheel. Having helped Infiniti develop the car, I knew the excellent handling and power delivery of the Q50 would enable me to push it to the limit.”

Sebastian Vettel will be back in action behind the wheel of an F1 car this weekend, where he will strive to get his first victory of the 2014 season at the same circuit that gave him his first win for in 2009.
