April 9, 2014 in Infiniti Racing
It may not be as widely viewed as the Oscars; but to athletes, the Laureus World Sports Awards are just as important. The night was a celebratory affair for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing team as champion Formula One driver and team member, Sebastian Vettel, received the award for Sportsman of the Year.
The world’s best and most influential athletes gathered in Kuala Lumpur for the awards ceremony.
Vettel, known as Seb among his friends, said, “I have massive respect for the other athletes here.”
“When I was on stage and saw so many of the greats, it was truly a very special moment. All the Members of The [Laureus] Academy are true greats – heroes, legends and to see some of them on stage, others in the room and on the red carpet, makes this night very special.”
Vettel was nominated among other world class athletes including Lebron James, Usain Bolt, and Rafael Nadal.
Congratulations, Sebastian, from your friends here at Infiniti of Cincinnati!
You’ll be able to watch Seb next in the Chinese Grand Prix on April 20.
