Lewis Hamilton rocks an Obi Wan Kenobi style pleated skirt ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix… as he keeps in his nose studs after backing down on promise to boycott race over piercings

Lewis Hamilton took inspiration from Star Wars legend Obi Wan Kenobi for his latest F1 fashion parade on Sunday.

The racer modelled a brown ensemble with a pleated sash, resembling the outfit worn by Ewan McGregor’s Obi Wan in the Star Wars movie franchise. 

Lewis teamed his unusual outfit with a pair of nose studs ahead of the F1 Grand Prix at Bahrain International Circuit.

The racing driver, 38, showcased his edgy sense of style in a brown sweater and a coordinating half-skirt, which he layered above tailored trousers.  

He completed his look with a pair of mirrored orange-tinted sunglasses and wore his braids in a ponytail.

Lewis previously admitted he’d have to pull out of the F1 Grand Prix of Miami last year if FIA insisted he remove his piercings.

But in a swift U-turn, he agreed to a medical examination at the track and whipped out all but two piercings.

Lewis insisted the studs cannot be removed easily and was granted a two-race exemption to keep them in place while he looks into possible solutions.

According to reports, FIA President Mohammed bin Sulayem is ‘fixated’ on cracking down on Lewis’ flouting of the rules as he continues to wear jewellery to race.

During a press conference ahead of the race last year, Lewis made a statement in three watches, eight rings, four necklaces, one bracelet and two earrings.

When asked what was happening regarding his piercings, he said: ‘I really don’t know. As I said, I can’t remove at least two of them.

‘One I can’t really explain where it is. But what I can say is it’s platinum that I have, so it’s not magnetic. It’s never been a safety issue in the past.’

Adding that there’s a possibility he may not race, Lewis said: ‘So yeah, if they stop me then so be it. We’ve got a spare driver. So we’re well prepped for the weekend.

‘There’s lots to do in the city anyway so it will be good either way. I couldn’t get any more [jewellery] on today!’

He said that he believes that the initiative is a ‘step backwards’ for sport and told how he has been wearing jewellery while racing for 16 years.

However, his U-turn agreement to the medical test and two-race exemption to keep them in means he can continue to drive for the time being.
