British F1 driver Lando Norris is victim of an ‘expensive’ robbery at Marbella villa he was sharing with TikTok model Jennie Dimova, just two years after he had £144,000 watch stolen at Wembley Euro 2020 final

- Fortunately, Norris was not in the villa at the time of the robbery, but at dinner
- Dimova shared her experience of the burglary with her followers on social media
Lando Norris has revealed he was robbed while on holiday in Marbella – two years after he had his £144,000 watch stolen at Wembley.
The British F1 star was spending downtime in a luxury villa when the robbers struck, though he was not in the building at the time.
Social media influencer Jennie Dimova was with the 23-year-old on the holiday, and has since spoken about the incident online. And speaking ahead of Sunday’s Austrian Grand Prix, Norris disclosed: ‘We were out for dinner and our place got robbed.
‘A mixture of many things were stolen. Some were expensive and some were not so expensive. It is still an ongoing investigation so I cannot say too much.’
Norris was left ‘shocked’ after having his Richard Mille watch stolen while leaving the hooligan-hit 2021 European Championship final between Italy and England in 2021.

In a video shared to TikTok on Sunday evening, Dimova – who is believed to be dating Norris’ close friend and fellow driver Max Fewtrell – looked visibly distraught by the turn of events.
‘If you’re wondering why I look like that, it’s because our villa got robbed,’ Dimova said to camera. ‘And everything I’ve ever owned: my bags, my clothes, my shoes, my jewellery, everything is f****** taken.
‘I’m left with literally nothing after collecting this stuff for f******* years. So, you know what? I mean, I cried for like two hours but, what can I f****** do?’
Two years earlier, Norris was the victim of a violent mugging perpetuated by two thieves after the driver watched England lose to Italy on penalties in the European Championship final.
Norris was held in a heldlock by an unknown man whilst another robber wrenched the timepiece – one of just five in the world – from his wrist as the driver made his way to his car in the yellow VIP car park at Wembley Stadium.
One man accused of being involved in the theft, Liam Williams, 25, of Bootle, Merseyside was cleared of the robbery after a week-long trial at Harrow Crown Court in March 2023.
Williams – whose DNA was found on the racing driver’s left wrist – denied the charge and was found not guilty by a jury after two hours of deliberation.
He shared during the trial that he had been shown the stolen watch in a pub, where he had watched the final after failing to secure a ticket, but had no idea where those who showed it to him had found it.

Williams later claimed he received threatening calls warning him to keep his mouth shut about the watch.
The driver would have hoped the weekend break might have been a respite from a trying season.
He has endured a disapointing year for McLaren, scoring just 12 points from eight races, but is due an upgrade in Spielberg.
Norris finished outside the points last race weekend in Montreal, hot on the heels of a lacklustre 17th-place finish in Barcelona at the start of June.
