F1 driver Jules Bianchi has been attacked and mugged near Paris' famous Champs-Elysees.
Le Parisien reports that while the Marussia driver and Frenchman, in Paris for a television appearance, stood outside the luxury Pershing hotel smoking a cigarette before midnight, three assailants attacked him.
Bianchi, 24, was reportedly knocked to the ground and held while his watch was removed.
The newspaper said the watch stolen was a model by Richard Mille, the luxury Swiss brand, worth EUR 70,000. Bianchi filed a report with the police.
