He is known for his eclectic, bold and frequently questionable fashion displays.

And Lewis Hamilton put on another outlandish display in a vibrant aquamarine ensemble as he stepped out at the Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo on Saturday.

The racing driver, 37, sported a checkered blue vest top and wide leg teal trousers, which he styled with a pair of azure sneakers.

He carried his essentials in a blue bag slung across one shoulder and flaunted his intricate display of tattoos in his outfit.

The Formula One star shielded his eyes from the sunshine with a pair of navy square sunglasses and styled his brunette locks in a braided style.

He accessorised his stylish ensemble with a silver chain necklace, an array of chunky rings and a bracelet, while he also wore his signature nose ring and hoop earrings.

Lewis was dripping in jewellery after he backed down over his promise to boycott the Miami Grand Prix over wearing piercings while racing.

Earlier this month, he said he’d have to pull out of the race if FIA insisted he remove his piercings but in a swift U-turn, agreed to a medical examination at the track and whipped out all but two piercings.

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

Now, Lewis is gearing up to compete in Monaco after a moratorium was taken on the jewellery crackdown to find a way to come to an agreement on the issue.

‘Honestly, I feel like there’s just way too much time and energy being given to this,’ he told The Guardian. ‘I’ve said everything I feel I need to say on it in the last races and that’s not what my focus is this weekend.’ 

Lewis is hoping for success at Monaco after he was the fastest driver on the track in Barcelona and made an incredible comeback from 19th to 5th place after he took a puncture.

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

During a press conference at the start of May, 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 in Miami, 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 meant he could continue to drive for the time-being.

Race director Niels Wittich had sent a letter to teams revealing his intention to clamp down on jewellery, because it may become ‘lodged or snagged’ while driving.

Formula One drivers were served a reminder that they are banned from wearing jewellery while racing ahead of the Australian Grand Prix.

The ruling was included in the Melbourne event notes that were issued by new F1 race director Wittich, who will share the position with Eduardo Freitas following the sacking of Michael Masi.

It has been part of the sporting regulations since 2005, though drivers who have worn jewellery behind the wheel have not been penalised.

Lewis was seen wearing a nose stud at both last year’s season-ending Abu Dhabi GP and this year’s opener in Bahrain, where it was clearly visible through his open visor.

The Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) confirmed a nose stud would fall foul of the ban, raising the prospect of Hamilton being forced to remove it.

The rule prohibiting the wearing of jewellery is Article 5 of the third chapter of Appendix L of the governing body’s International Sporting Code (ISC).

The full wording of the rule states: ‘The wearing of jewellery in the form of body piercing or metal neck chains is prohibited during the competition and may therefore be checked before the start.’
