In association with Zelo’s Restaurant Bar Lounge, the Infiniti Podium Lounge will arrive in style for the first time ever over The Grand Prix de Monaco as the racing community’s ultimate A-list party for Monaco’s party elite this season. The Monaco edition recently announced Infiniti as the Title Sponsor and this star-studded event will be held over the three-day race weekend, attracting Formula 1™ drivers, celebrities, musicians, models, ambassadors and the ultra-hip crowd, to create the most sought-after and glamorous nightlife experience over the Race Weekend. As the Title Partner and Vehicle Performance Partner of Infiniti Red Bull Racing, Infiniti has a far-reaching technical collaboration with the Formula One team, and Sebastian Vettel, its four-time World Champion driver, serves as Infiniti’s Director of Performance.
