Richard Mille and Ferrari is a match made in high-speed heaven . Both brands emphasise the importance of technology and specialise in innovation, pushing back the boundaries of the possible in their respective fields. That’s why the two companies collaborate so closely – a partnership that has just entered its second year, and that covers everything from top level racing to driver development. It’s also the reason why Richard Mille is particularly delighted by Scuderia Ferrari’s blockbuster start to the 2022 Formula 1 season. STYLE Edit: Richard Mille debuts new signature Rafael Nadal watch Through the ongoing partnership, Richard Mille supports Ferrari at every level of racing, from Formula 1 and WEC endurance programmes, to Competizioni GT and even esports. The Swiss luxury watchmaker will also back the company’s Driver Academy, where the stars of the future are unearthed and developed, as well as the Ferrari Challenge series aimed at non-professional drivers. At the most prestigious level of racing, Ferrari has made a sensational start to the 2022 Formula 1 season – and Richard Mille is especially pleased to congratulate the marque and its drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr. Tourbillons: invented for accuracy, retained for their beauty At the season’s opening race, in Bahrain, the team took the top two positions on the podium, with Leclerc taking the victory from Sainz in second. They then took second and third respectively in the second race, in Saudi Arabia. In Australia, on April 10, Leclerc again won. That puts him top of the drivers’ championship, with Sainz in third place. Ferrari’s dynamic driving duo have also been wearing an equally high performance Richard Mille timepiece, one of many inspired by the world of motorsport. The RM 67-02 Automatic Winding Extra Flat was developed with the aim of making a watch whose lightness and wearability make it almost undetectable to the wearer, and it weighs in at just 32 grams, including its new lightweight comfort strap – Richard Mille’s lightest automatic watch ever. STYLE Edit: Richard Mille continues its commitment to contemporary art This has been achieved with a case made from a combination of the house’s proprietary Carbon TPT and Quartz TPT composite materials, giving it unmatched shock resistance, while it is powered by the CRMA7 automatic movement, the seventh in-house calibre Richard Mille has made.
