Charles Leclerc has spoken out about how he is feeling after his watch was stolen from his wrist ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. According to reports, Leclerc's $320,000 Richard Mille timepiece was taken when he stopped to pose for photographs with fans in the Via Salvatori area of Italy on Monday evening. Leclerc was unharmed in the incident, but admits that it was not a nice experience. "I won't go too much into details," the Ferrari driver told media, including RacingNews365.com . "It hasn't been a great experience, but yeah, I cannot say much more than that."
