Richard Mille is delighted to announce a new long-term partnership with the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team.
Perfectly balanced: both brands share a passion for modern technology, cutting-edge design and precision engineering.
The partnership will see Richard Mille timepieces grace the wrists of the team’s world champion drivers Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button, distinctive branding appear on the new MP4-31 car, and a commitment to develop a unique and exclusive series of exceptional calibres inspired by the tremendous heritage of the McLaren brand.
McLaren has won 182 Grand Prix Races since Bruce McLaren made our Grand Prix debut at Monaco on May 22, 1966.
Since 1963, McLaren has won 20 world championships, with champion drivers including Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt, Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and Lewis Hamilton.
At McLaren-Honda, he has resolutely vowed to take the reunified giants back to the top step of the podium, while at the same time replicating the past successes of his favourite driver and his childhood idol, Ayrton Senna.
He won further races in 2011 in Hungary and Japan to finish second in the World Drivers’ Championship and achieved similar success in 2012, winning in Australia, Belgium and Brazil.
