Η Red Bull πλέον, θα συνεργάζεται με την premium θυγατρική της Nissan, την Infiniti, στο θέμα των κινητήρων. Όχι, δεν αλλάζουν οι κινητήρες, απλά θα αλλάξει το λογότυπο, αλλά και τα οικονομικά οφέλη για την αυστριακή ομάδα. Σύμφωνα με τις φήμες, η Red Bull θα εξοικονομήσει τουλάχιστον €8.000.000.


Παράλληλα η συμφωνία αναφέρει ότι στις στολές της Red Bull θα υπάρχουν σήματα της Infiniti, ενώ η Infiniti θα θα συνεργαστεί με τη Renault ώστε να δημιουργηθεί μια μελλοντική τεχνική συνεργασία με τη Red Bull Racing. Η Red Bull Racing team θα συνεχίσει να χρησιμοποιεί τους κινητήρες της Renault για το 2011 και 2012.
