Lewis Hamilton gives in and has nose piercing removed


For weeks it has been a lingering discussion between the bosses of Formula 1 and driver Lewis Hamilton. Due to some new rules banning visible piercings, the Briton would also have to remove his nose piercing. But the Mercedes driver always resisted it, until now.

This weekend the Grand Prix will be completed at Silverstone in the United Kingdom. Against the odds, Lewis Hamilton appeared on the tarmac – as requested – without nose piercing. Hamilton was faced with a large fine of 250,000 euros if he did not remove the piercing before the British GP and the Briton has now caved in. Hamilton previously received a postponement until the end of June after he refused to remove the piercing.

The rules forbidding F1 drivers from wearing jewelry or jewelery during a race have actually been in existence since 2005, but it has only been taken into account since this year.
