People will stare, so make it worth their while. Lewis Hamilton is a man who definitely lives by this motto. While walking down the paddock and making iconic entries, the 7x champ has chosen fashion as his form of art to express himself away from the track. On Sunday, at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, he wore a Rick Owens monochromatic creation along with an accessory that is very dear to him. An association with a Swiss Watchmaking brand added the cherry on top of his already outstanding attire.

Going all black, Hamilton wore a sleeveless knitted v-neck top with a pair of baggy cargo pants and chunky Beatle boots. He completed the look with his favorite watch from the Swiss brand, IWC. According to Rodd Report, The Mercedes man, who also happens to be the brand ambassador of the watchmaker, wore his $35K Big Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Edition “Mojave Desert.” And his Prada shades and Hatton bracelet gave the final touch.

Lewis Hamilton had once told Motorsport that he hopes his fashion choice makes people perceive things with an open mind. He stated, “Anyone can wear whatever they want. There will be people that don’t understand it, but that’s okay. Hopefully, they’ll eventually go through the opening their mind phase and let people be who they want to be.”

The man who has been nailing his fashionable statements has gone on record to say that he just cannot become one with the W14. And to add to his miseries, they gave him a setup different from that of George Russell, which eventually proved to be much slower than Hamilton liked.

As quoted by Formu1a.uno, Lewis said, “We got some great points as a team. George got third, which is amazing. I went forwards, which is always the hope, to at least go forwards, one foot in front of the other. So I’m really grateful to have come from seventh to fifth. Strategy just didn’t really work out for me. Set-up was a bit off. I think if I had the set-up that George had I would have been in a bit of a better position. Lots to work on but there are positives to take from it.”
