First Charles Leclerc, now Carlos Sainz: the Spanish driver, after the Italian Grand Prix, was robbed of his watch. After today’s race in Monza, Carlos returned to Milan, at the Armani Hotel. While on the street, two men approached him and forcibly took his watch from his wrist, which reportedly, according to Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica, is worth hundreds of thousands of euros. The Spanish driver, who was in the company of a bodyguard, didn’t hesitate: he immediately chased after the two robbers.
Some people, most likely recognizing the driver, also rushed to help. In the end, the robbers were caught by Carlos Sainz and detained in the Montenapoleone area, where the police were present. The officers took custody of the robbers, who were then taken away, while Carlos Sainz returned to the hotel.
Another misadventure for the drivers of the Scuderia. Last year, Charles Leclerc was also robbed in Viareggio. The Monegasque driver had his watch stolen, a Richard Mille collector’s piece worth nearly two million euros.
