The funky fashion statement was just one in a long line of daring ensembles the champion racer has experimented with.

Lewis, who boasts seven World Drivers’ Championship titles, the most wins (100), pole positions (101), and podium finishes (176), amongst others.

Yet while Lewis Hamilton’s talent on the track is undisputed, his outlandish fashion choices have been the subject of many debates.

The Mercedes driver is known for his love of style, and has never been afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to his ensembles. 



Lewis is known for his flamboyant style: The star’s most outlandish fashion choices (L-R A blue tartan kilt suit at the Turkish Grand Prix in October 2021; Wearing a checked short suit to the F1 Grand Prix of Tuscany September 2020, Going purple for the F1 Grand Prix of Austria in July 2021) 

Lewis has spoken openly about his love of fashion, admitting he uses his style to ‘take the weight’ off the pressure to succeed while jetting around the world taking part in various Grand Prix events. 

While the season is ongoing, Lewis took time out of training in September to attend Paris Fashion Week and also the Met Gala in New York, buying a table to host young black designers.

He told The Times: ‘When you’re in a fashion week you’re surrounded by people from all different walks of life expressing themselves in different ways, and I love that environment, where I’m able to express myself. I now do that on the race track.

‘I love being able to separate from the sport. The intensity of this whole season is difficult for everyone that’s at the track, and so to be able to have something else — another outlet, something else that you can focus on — helps take the weight off of it. 

‘And so when I come back, it always feels fresh when it comes to a grand prix, because it’s not something I’ve been thinking about every single day.’
