Well, it happened again. Someone tried to steal a Richard Mille from a Formula 1 driver. This time around, it was apparently a Carlos Sainz and a Richard Mille RM 67-02 Alexander Zverev edition that reportedly cost more than half a million dollars. It also does not look like it’s worth remotely close to that much.

Whatever you say, Dick Mill.
