Driver and seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton has taken a stand against the F1 rule, which prohibits Formula pilots from racing with earrings or piercings. This rule was renewed for security reasons in 2005, but it was approached very benevolently.

 

Before the Australian Grand Prix, the new race director, Niels Wittich, brought attention to riders' compliance with the rule. Hamilton, who wears the colours of Mercedes, said, tht wearing accessories was a personal matter and he did not plan to remove them while driving.

"I have no intention of having anything removed," Hamilton said. In addition to earrings, he also wears a nose piercing. According to the pilot, something like this should not be banned at all. "They shouldn't forbid your being who you are," Lewis Hamilton said.

 

 

He pointed out that something simply can't be removed. "For example, my ear piercing would have to have be cut out," explained the 37-year-old Brit. He even joked and said, "And I have a piercing in a place, where a lot of people haven't seen it, and it can't just be removed."
