Lewis Hamilton: It’s hard to imagine life without racing

F1 chief Mohamed Ben Sulayem insisted Lewis Hamilton He has no choice but to remove all of his jewelry after the FIA ​​campaign.

new FIA Race Director Nils Wittich has taken a strict stance on the wearing of jewelry during the race, with the organisation’s rules stating: “Body piercing jewelry or metallic neck chains are prohibited during competition and can therefore be checked before the start.”

The mercedes The star has made clear his feelings about the oppression and even hinted wildly that he might miss the Miami Grand Prix because of the situation, as he has remained defiant in the face of the FIA’s stance on wearing watches, necklaces, earrings and other accessories when behind the wheel.

The seven-time world champion performed a turn on this stand, and agreed to take off any jewelry – other than his nose piercing – at last weekend’s Miami GP opening ceremony. However, the situation is set to escalate further with the F1 group heading to Barcelona next.

according to daily Mail Hamilton reportedly had a discussion with FIA doctor Sean Peterbridge before first practice in Miami, which led him to bow to pressure from the FIA ​​chiefs.

The British F1 star’s nose piercing requires surgical removal, so he has been given a two-race ‘grace period’ which has given him time to get rid of the piercing.

This means that by the time the Monaco GP comes along, the holeshot in Hamilton has to be cleared or else he could face a potential ban. But the mail reported that he digs his heels.

Now Bin Sulayem has spoken for the first time on the matter, insisting that Hamilton will be punished if he continues to feud with the FIA ​​when Formula 1 arrives in Monaco.

When asked what would happen if he defied the wishes of the FIA, he replied: “It’s up to him. There are fines that apply. It’s as if someone is speeding on the road – you can’t stop them from doing it but they are fined, even if it is accidental.

“You can’t let people walk away from you because they are your friends. There should be one rule for everyone, and that’s it.” Then he added, “I love jewelry,” I absolutely love it. But in the car there can be no choice. People say they (the rules) haven’t been implemented before. Don’t ask me why not. People can ask the old system why that is.”

While he is at odds with the FIA, things are not going well on the track, after another mid-level race for Mercedes in Miami last time.

The seven-time world champion finished sixth in the race behind teammate George Russell, already 68 points behind championship leader Charles Leclerc.
