Formula 1 returned to the United Kingdom, which means it was the home race for the Mercedes duo. Lewis Hamilton and George Russell were both in high spirits to return to their home soil. Among all the drivers on the grid, Lewis Hamilton was again the most cheered at Silverstone. But this time, it might have been for a different reason.
The seven-time world champion is renowned for his world records in F1 and his exceptional race craft. However, off-track Lewis has often turned the heads up and down the paddock with his style statement. Coming to Britain as well, Hamilton dressed with flair.
The Mercedes driver kicked off the weekend with a snazzy outfit on Friday. Followed up by a low-key blacked-out look on Saturday. Nonetheless, the fit that stood out was the Sunday dapper look before the British Grand Prix.
The 37-year-old pulled off a Valentino contrast jacket worth $1830 for the upper. He paired this up with a pair of Valentino jeans worth $1000, along with 90s open skate sneakers worth $1020. A pair of Givenchy GV 7052/S sunglasses completed the standout look for the F1 fashion icon.
Lewis Hamilton: The Story Off-track
Most of the world knows Lewis Hamilton for being the most successful Formula 1 driver. To gain such high levels of success, a driver needs to be on top of his game, week in and week out.
The recovery after a race is an underrated aspect, often overlooked by many fans. The race results and performances can take a huge mental and physical toll on an F1 driver. Thus, Lewis often engages in hobbies like music, fashion, surfing, and sky-diving. These help him to disconnect, reset and come back each weekend to deliver his absolute best.
The Brit is even featured in a song with Christina Aguilera. In 2018, he signed a multi-year deal with the fashion brand, Tommy Hilfiger. This made him an ambassador for the Mercedes sponsor. Furthermore, he has expressed his admiration for skydiving many times.
The essential part behind grabbing the glory in F1 is the work that happens behind the scenes. Although physical fitness is crucial for an athlete, mental strength differentiates a driver from the rest. Hamilton takes his training regimen seriously and appreciates hobbies that keep him active both mentally and physically.
