F1 ACE Lando Norris was robbed of his “unique” £144,000 designer watch in Wembley Stadium’s VIP car park, a court heard yesterday.

The McLaren driver, 23, was targeted for his Richard Mille timepiece – one of only five in the world – as he walked to his £165,000 McLaren GT after the Euro 2020 final.

The Richard Mille “prototype limited edition McLaren watch”, also known as the RM6702, was the only one in the world with a blue strap made to measure for the driver’s wrist.

Despite never being made available for sale, the designer estimates the value to be around £144,000 – excluding VAT.

Liam Williams, 25, from Merseyside has denied robbing the Belgian-British F1 star on July 11, 2021.

He appeared at court today wearing a navy-blue t-shirt and grey ripped jeans.

The robbery came after England’s defeat to Italy on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Tyrone Silcott, prosecuting, said the attack happened in the VIP yellow car park at Wembley Stadium following the final.

Mr Norris told Harrow Crown Court it was midnight and raining as he spoke to members of the public next to his McLaren.

He then realised two suspects were circling the car.
