Riva Yachts will be Scuderia Ferrari’s official sponsor for the 2016 Formula One World Championship.

The yacht brand and the Ferrari logo will be featured together for the first time on all Formula One circuits that host the 21 Grand Prix races.

The sponsorship was announced during the presentation of the new Ferrari SF 16-H car, which will compete in the next championship.

The Riva logo, featuring the aquamarine background, will be visible on the helmets of Ferrari’s two drivers, Sedation Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.

“An icon of recreational boating meets the most exceptional Formula One team, giving birth to an unmatched duo, a legend meeting another legend, racing together on Formula One circuits and cruising the seas worldwide,” Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi said in a statement.
