Italian yacht manufacturer Riva has entered into a season-long partnership with Formula One motor racing team Ferrari.

Under the agreement, Riva’s branding will appear on the helmets of the Italian team’s drivers, Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen. Financial terms of the deal, which will cover the upcoming 2016 F1 season, were not disclosed.
