Spaniard Carlos Sainz emerged victorious in the inaugural Netflix Cup alongside American golfer Justin Thomas but his trophy did not survive the celebrations in Las Vegas.
Carlos Sainz became the third driver this season to accidentally break a winners’ trophy after winning the Netflix Cup in Las Vegas. The Netflix Cup brought together Formula 1 drivers and PGA Tour professionals in a unique event streamed live on Netflix. Sainz, along with partners Justin Thomas and other golfers, emerged victorious in the F1 meets Golf competition. However, during the celebrations, Sainz ended up dropping the trophy while holding a bottle, causing it to break into pieces. This incident follows similar mishaps by Lando Norris and Max Verstappen earlier in the season.
