LANDO NORRIS had a new watch on his wrist at the British Grand Prix after his Wembley mugging ordeal.

The Sun revealed that the McLaren driver, 21, had his £40,000 watch stolen at the Euro 2020 final last weekend.

Norris was getting into his £165,000 McLaren GT after the game when he was targeted on Sunday night.

He has spoken about his terrifying ordeal and how it left him shaken.

Norris – who will race in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in front of 140,000 fans this weekend – had a replacement on his wrist on Friday.

The 21-year-old turned up to his Friday press conference in his McLaren team gear while wearing the new piece with an orange strap that matched his jacket.

Norris will also wear a custom helmet this weekend in front of his home fans thanking key workers.

The white helmet is filled with messages of support for those on the front line during the Covid pandemic.

Wembley descended into a warzone at the Euro final — when 2,500 ticketless, drunken thugs stormed the stadium.

Terrified families called security for the showpiece event a shambles, with fights breaking out around the ground.


Britain’s F1 ace Norris was also mugged for his £40,000 watch after the game with Italy — England’s biggest since 1966.

Norris said after the incident: "Hi world. Thanks for all the messages everyone.

"Really means a lot to see so many messages of kindness and love from you all.

“Thought I'd let you know that I am doing well I'm trying to make sure that I am ready and in the right zone for this weekend to perform at my best.

“Love you all and can't wait to see so many of you back at the track this weekend.”

Players’ families were caught up in skirmishes, children were    left in tears, a female security guard was trampled and a disabled entrance stormed.

Fans who paid £900 and more for tickets then found yobs in their seats refusing to budge.

Friends and families of stars including captain Harry Kane, John Stones, Raheem Sterling and Harry Maguire also saw trouble unfold as dozens barged into their section.

A source said: “All the players had their kids in there. It was ­terrifying. The wives, girlfriends and children were all crying. There were a couple of fights.

“None of the relatives or friends had seen anything like this before. They arrived to find seats taken by fans without tickets. And they were rude and really aggressive.

“It got really nasty and was very upsetting. There were not enough stewards and no police in sight.”
