A driver who excels.
At the age of 34, the Brazilian driver is one of the most experienced on the Formula 1 circuit. He started his career in the motor sport’s flagship competition in 2002, and two years later he had joined the Richard Mille family. The brand’s first ‘historic’ partner has started every Grand Prix since 2004 with an RM watch on his wrist. In this time, he has won 11 races, earning 16 pole positions, and finished runner-up in the drivers’ world championship in 2008 at the wheel of a Ferrari. Note that his impressive series of results is by no means over, since Felipe will be driving with Williams until 2016. This does not stop him from continuing to admire Ferraris… in the form of road cars (he owns a red F40 and a black LaFerrari), as demonstrated by the many pictures he shares with his fans on social media. As a driver who excels in setting up his cars for races, he is, quite logically, very interested in the technical solutions used in Richard Mille watches.
