Nine months, 21 races, five continents – Formula 1 campaigns serve up a punishing schedule for race teams and drivers. And to stay on top of the intense travel demands of the world’s fastest moving sport, Aston Martin Red Bull Racing is pleased to announce that renowned luggage manufacturer Piquadro will join the Team as an Official Supplier for the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship.
The Italian business traveller accessories brand will supply the Team with an innovative all-leather backpack and trolley suitcase for the upcoming season, which starts on 17 March in Melbourne with the Australian Grand Prix.
In true Formula 1 style, Piquadro is bringing high-tech design and functionality to the luggage supplied to Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, which include smartphone charging features and shock absorbent wheel bearings.
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Team Principal, Christian Horner, said: “Formula 1 is truly a World Championship and the global nature of the sport means we are almost always on the move. We are therefore delighted to announce this partnership with Piquadro.
