Ferrari extends Riva partnership

Formula One motor-racing team Ferrari has extended its partnership with Italian yacht manufacturer Riva.

The new deal will cover the remainder of the 2017 F1 season. Riva’s branding will continue to feature on the helmets of drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen as part of the agreement.

The two parties first teamed up ahead of the 2016 season.

The new deal comes with Ferrari having posted a one-two finish at Sunday’s Monaco Grand Prix, with Vettel edging out Raikkonen to extend his lead at the top of the drivers’ standings to 25 points over Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton.
