Carlos Sainz has responded after he was reportedly the victim of an attempted robbery after the Italian Grand Prix in Milan.

The Ferrari driver was leaving his hotel when two perpetrators sole his watch and attempted to escape. However, both Sainz and his bodyguard gave chase and caught them with help from bystanders.

They were later handed in to police custody, with Sainz emerging unhurt and returning to his hotel after the incident.

He took to social media to release a statement after the episode: "As many of you already know, yesterday we experienced an unfortunate incident in Milan. The most important thing is that we are all OK and this will only remain as an unpleasant anecdote.

"Many thanks to all the people who helped us yesterday, to the Milan police for their quick intervention and thanks for all your messages."

Sainz took a sensational third place in front of the Ferrari fans, his first podium of the season after qualifying on pole for the race.
