Jules Bianchi was robbed of his £60,000 ($100,000) watch on Wednesday by three men who knocked the Marussia driver to the ground.
The 24-year-old was reportedly stood outside his hotel in France's capital at 11pm having a cigarette with a friend (it's not known if Bianchi himself was smoking) when three men approached him and asked for a light. Two of the men forced Bianchi to the ground whilst the third removed his Richard Mille watch.
Bianchi was in Paris for a television appearance on Canal+ and had just arrived at his hotel on the Champs-Elysees when the mugging took place.
The Frenchman filed a police report the following day and isn't believed to have suffered any injuries during the robbery.
