Their aim - to compete in the FIA championship for electric cars. Richard Mille has been the Official Team Partner of Venturi since season 5 of Formula E.

The exciting start last December of the partnership between Richard Mille and the Formula E team come as a natural extension to the brand’s ongoing relationship with team driver Felipe Massa, the brand’s very first sporting partner in 2004. Massa will continue to be part of the brand during the next seasons, proudly displaying watches which he helped develop. Fellow driver Edoardo Mortara will also sport the RM 030 Automatic watch, for the duration of the 2018 / 2019 Season.
‘I’m very happy to bring Richard Mille into the Venturi family, I’ve loved working with them over the years. Their unwavering commitment to retain the beauty of their hand-craftmanship whilst driving future horological innovation without compromise really impresses me. It sets them apart and I’m pleased that we can continue our partnership now into Formula E.’
‘Venturi has been a pioneer in electric high-performance vehicles for more than a decade and Formula E gives us the fantastic opportunity to further improve our advanced technologies through motorsport, as well as compete all over the world. It also gives us the chance to be part of a new racing program with a project that really shares Venturi’s values for clean mobility, innovation in the field of electric propulsion and energy efficiency optimisation.’
