Hamilton discloses his jewellery intention after receiving FIA warning


Despite the FIA’s admonition that body piercings and metal neck chains are banned, Lewis Hamilton has indicated why he will continue to his jewellery.


Despite the FIA reminding him that piercing are prohibited, Lewis Hamilton claims he will keep wearing jewellery, particularly piercings, during future F1 races.

Wearing jewellery in the form of body piercings or metal neck chains is banned under Appendix L (Chapter III, Article 5) of the FIA’s International Sporting Code, which was first implemented in 2005.

Race Director Niels Wittich included a passage from the Sporting Code in his pre-weekend race instructions to educate drivers about the rules ahead of the Australian Grand Prix.

Despite the reminder, Hamilton was photographed pulling on his helmet and sporting jewelery in his ears and nose prior of the event at Albert Park.

Hamilton: Drivers should be allowed to be who they are

Hamilton made it plain after the race that he intended to keep his piercings, saying that racers “should be able to be who they are.”

“I don’t have any plans of removing them,” Hamilton told members of the media, including RacingNews365.com, when asked if he would still wear the jewellery.

“I feel they are personal things and you should be able to be who you are.”

Gesturing to his ear, the Mercedes driver added: “There’s stuff that I can’t remove. I literally can’t even take these out.

“These ones on my right ear, they’re literally welded in so I would have to get [them] chopped off, or something like that. They’ll be staying.”
