TAG Heuer salutes Red Bull Racing Honda and Max Verstappen for their Historic Win

The 24-year old Dutchman has won the F1 Drivers’ World Championship after claiming victory at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Avant-garde Swiss brand TAG Heuer has been inextricably linked with motor racing for the better part of its history. Of particular note, the brand’s iconic TAG Heuer Monaco chronograph is simply one of the most powerful symbols of its racing heritage. The iconic square timepiece, which was created back in 1969, bears the name of the prestigious Formula 1 race. If anything, it represents the brand’s passion for speed and the fact its spirit is steeped in the sport of motor racing.

Speaking of Formula 1, this year’s prestigious race has just recently finished and Max Verstappen from Red Bull Honda Racing has won the 2021 Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship thanks to his 10th victory at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The Dutch driver historically edged out Britain’s Lewis Hamilton in what will go down as one of the closest championship battles in F1 history.

TAG Heuer, which has been a partner of the Red Bull Racing Honda team since 2016,naturally joined in congratulating Max Verstappen and the team behind him on their historic win.

“As a proud partner of Red Bull Racing Honda, TAG Heuer would like to congratulate Max Verstappen and all the team on this extraordinary achievement,” says Frédéric Arnault, TAG Heuer’s CEO. “We are also delighted that the TAG Heuer Monaco we presented to Max a few months ago is continuing to bring him good luck, and that this ‘lucky charm’ has helped him to overall victory in the championship fight today.”

More importantly, the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition referenced by Arnault was presented to Verstappen on the eve of the Monaco Grand Prix earlier this year. It proved to be a pivotal weekend for the Dutchman as he claimed victory and moved into first place on the driver standings for the first time this season, in a championship battle that had until that point largely been dominated by Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton.

Design-wise, the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition boasts the kind of technical features you would expect of a timepiece worn by a driver as committed and demanding as Max Verstappen. The chronograph in this watch is ultra-light and incredibly strong, thanks to its titanium case. As a finishing touch, the texture of the leather strap is inspired by the grooves in race tires, while the dial features elegant black subdials.

Furthermore, in addition of the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition, TAG Heuer and Red Bull Racing also collaborated to create a Red Bull Racing Formula One Team Special Edition watch. Aesthetically, the timepiece is inspired by the team’s official design and its steel screw-down case is engraved with the Red Bull Racing team logo over a chequered pattern. Put simply, this TAG Heuer Formula 1 chronograph is definitely the perfect watch for fans of the Red Bull Racing team, as well as for the fans of the prestigious race.
