Thieves who stole F1 star Lando Norris' £40,000 watch seen showing it off on video

THE NET was last night closing on muggers who snatched F1 driver Lando Norris’s £40,000 watch at Wembley — after the Sun obtained video of them showing it off.

Two thugs ripped it from the 21-year-old race ace’s wrist as he got into his £165,000 McLaren GT after England’s Euro 2020 defeat on Sunday.

Video has now emerged of them hawking the unique Richard Mille prototype in the streets around Wembley.

The pair asked a stranger whether the watch — with its distinctive exposed mechanism — was a fake, as they discussed how it might be sold on.

But the 23-year-old man who the pair met became suspicious and they fled after he suspected it was stolen.

He said: “I videoed the watch with my phone and decided to try to get it off them so I could hand it back — I thought I might get a reward.

“But they told a police officer they were scared I was a mugger. He told me to leave them alone.”

Lando, preparing for this Sunday’s British Grand Prix, spoke about the mugging.

He said: “I have tried to take my mind off it. I’m an overthinker. I always think the worst.”
