Pursuing speed and conquering speed is the desire of all men. Therefore, there are many speed-related sports and events, such as the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, which is also commonly known as ‘F1’. Even a woman like me who does not care about sports events, I heard about it.

Formula 1’s most noticed period in China should be the heyday of ‘Car King’ Schumacher, from the late 1990s to the early millennium, in his 16-year career, almost every record was set. The seven championships have deeply imprinted his name on the historical milestone of Formula One Formula One. Even China, which has only been in contact with this event since the 1990s, has an indelible passion for F1.
F1 seems to be far away, or even out of reach. It is not a sport that ordinary people can control, nor is it an event that we can easily participate in. But in this highest level of racing today, our heart beats every time the engine sounds. In addition to the team’s technology, team cooperation, and the talent and strength of the driver, the support for the car to reach the top speed has a great relationship with the development of the car and the use of new materials. Each time a new record is created, it means that the elements that make up speed have been renewed.

Of the fine watch brands, RICHARD MILLE, who has an almost enthusiastic love for F1, certainly will not miss the moment to witness every moment of speed.

The timing of F1 races is not multi-year, using a single annual league system, accumulating annual points to determine the performance of drivers and teams in order to produce a championship. Of all the competitions held in the F1 competition, Europe is the most hosted, North America is the second, and Oceania is the least. There are 16 to 17 races planned each year (20 races in the 2012 season), usually starting around mid-March and ending the season at the end of October. The Shanghai F1 circuit, which started in October 2002 and was completed in June 2004, has also witnessed countless glories.
On the Shanghai International Circuit on April 14th, ten teams and 20 drivers drove fiercely on the racing track. Three teams of RICHARD MILLE include Alfa Romeo Racing and Haas F1 ( Haas F1 Team) and the McLaren F1 Team as we know it.
