If Sebastian Vettel's foray into the Kung Fu movie scene struck you as a bit of a stretch, this latest publicity stunt from Infiniti and Red Bull could be more your speed.
The relationship between Mark Webber and the Red Bull Racing team he drives for has often been more of a rocky road than smooth tarmac. The two parties have butted heads more than a handful of times, but at the end of the day, they're a good match. And so the team has announced that it has signed the Australian driver for another season of F1 racing.

But then the unthinkable happened: Sebastian Vettel (right), who had been catching up to his teammate, moved to pass for the lead, but instead crashed into his wingman's car. Webber recuperated and took t
