Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean has become a brand ambassador for luxury watchmaker Richard Mille.

The Frenchman, who currently drives for Lotus, joins fellow Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa as a Richard Mille ambassador, as well as tennis star Rafael Nadal, sprinter Yohan Blake and golfer Bubba Watson.

Grosjean’s watch of choice will be the RM 011, a watch with a strap so strong Richard Mille says it will be able ‘to resist being torn off at the high speeds imposed by’ Formula 1.

Grosjean will be seen sporting the watch, to be branded in Lotus colours, when he arrives in Australia for the opening race of the F1 season, on 16th March.

Richard Mille entered the F1 market last May when it signed a two-year deal to become the official timing partner of Grosjean’s Lotus team. (Sportspro Media)
