October 2011: Do speeding cars and excitement in the air give you an adrenaline rush? How about adding a dash of style to it? The Formula 1 Airtel Grand Prix of India, the opening race of New Delhi’s first ever Grand Prix on the remarkable 5.14 kilometer long Buddh International Circuit (BIC) is certainly something to celebrate in grand fashion.
Being an amateur racer himself, Richard Mille has an unquenchable thirst for speed and power and is joining in the celebratory GP festivities with the release of a new limited edition piece for this specific event - the RM 011 Felipe Massa watch.
