Last night, Carlos Sainz was robbed of his watch, a 500,000 euro Richard Mille, after being approached by three men mistaken for fans outside the Armani hotel on Via della Spiga in Milan. The Spanish driver chased after the criminals, who were unable to escape due to the intervention of the Milan police.
The Ferrari driver has shared his official words on social media to put the incident behind him: “As many of you already know, we had an unfortunate incident in Milan yesterday. The most important thing is that we are all fine, and this will be remembered only as an unfortunate story. Thanks to all the people who helped us yesterday, to the Milan police for their rapid response, and thanks for all your messages.”
Carlos Sainz secured a solid third place finish for the Maranello team at Monza in front of the Tifosi, which was the first podium of the current championship for the Spaniard.
