Steinmetz and the West McLaren Mercedes Formula One Team are poised to set a precedent with the official launch of a unique and glittering partnership.
Steinmetz, creators of the world's finest diamonds, and West McLaren Mercedes are both leaders in their respective fields, which although very different, rely on many similar principles. Flawless engineering, ground-breaking design and unparalleled performance are all traits the partners share in common. Steinmetz are proud to be associated with such a professional team.
This year's Monaco Grand Prix promises one of the most innovative collaborations in the history of Formula 1, with Steinmetz, creators of the world's finest diamonds working in partnership with West McLaren Mercedes. For one race only, both drivers will sparkle with round brilliant diamonds expertly cut in their factory in South Africa - Steinmetz have worked with both Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya to customise their helmets in what is the most exciting design collaboration to grace Monte Carlo.
The two F1 drivers names have been expertly pavéd in diamonds on the side. Kimi is renowned for introducing a unique helmet design for the Monaco race each year and this year, with the help of Steinmetz, he has fulfilled his 'Ice Man' nickname in an even more fitting manner.
The helmets will be presented to the F1 drivers, who have so far only seen the designs on the page, by the beautiful Natasja Vermeer, star of the HBO series Emmanuelle. After the race, the helmets will be auctioned and all the proceeds will go to charities chosen by the drivers and the West McLaren Mercedes Team.
Steinmetz and West McLaren Mercedes have combined flawless technology to apply the diamonds, bringing their brand of innovation and glamour to the Monaco Grand Prix. Nir Livnat, CEO of Steinmetz, "We are very excited to be partnering West McLaren Mercedes and I feel that these diamond helmets reflect the expert level of patience, craftsmanship and engineering that is necessary for cutting and polishing diamonds. We are also pleased to be able to raise money for some very worthy charities and look forward to a lasting relationship with McLaren."
Thanks to the Steinmetz pavé diamonds, the bespoke helmets will be the most expensive ever to race around Monaco... or any other track on the Grand Prix circuit. And there is no doubt in anyone's mind that these two will certainly be winners in the style stakes!
This collaboration was designed to perfectly combine the passion of Formula 1 motor racing, the elegance and splendour of Monaco and the brilliance of some of the finest natural diamonds in the world.
The Steinmetz / West McLaren Mercedes partnership will be unveiled on Wednesday, 18th May at the Top Car Collection Museum, Les Terrasses de Fontvieille, Monaco, 98000.
