Superyacht builder Riva is to sponsor Ferrari's F1 racing team for the forthcoming Grand Prix season, which starts in Melbourne on March 20.
“An icon of recreational boating meets the most exceptional Formula 1 team, giving birth to an unmatched duo, a legend meeting another legend, racing together on Formula 1 circuits and cruising the seas worldwide,” says Ferretti Group’s CEO Alberto Galassi. “We are truly proud to be writing a new chapter of Riva’s glorious history together with Ferrari, thereby renovating a collaboration that, in the past, led to true sea jewels. The exclusive co-operation between Riva and Scuderia Ferrari brings together two icons of style and technological innovation, which every day thrill speedboat and car-racing enthusiasts all over the world.”
The Rolex Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne is followed by 20 more race weekends, culminating with the Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on November 27, the finale of the 2016 World Championship.
