Hamilton arrived in the paddock dressed entirely in denim, with several open buttons on his long-sleeved shirt revealing at least four stacked necklaces. Hamilton later emerged from the garage wearing at least three watches and four rings on each hand. He also has earrings and a nose ring, and he claims that some of his piercings are permanent.
The FIA tightened its ban on non-regulatory underwear and body piercings on Thursday by including them in official scrutineering, which means such choices will be reviewed by race officials.
Sebastian Vettel, a four-time champion, said the FIA was being petty and wondered if the rule was unique to Hamilton.
“I think it’s a bit unnecessary to blow this topic up, and it’s probably more of a personal thing at this stage, I feel a particular way targeted to Lewis,” Vettel said. “There is a concern for safety, obviously if you have stuff and the car catches fire.” Personal freedom exists to some extent, and we are old enough to make our own decisions.”
The Formula One governing body stated that drivers may be subjected to pre-competition checks because “the wearing of jewelry beneath the required flameproof clothing can reduce the protection afforded by this equipment.”
“In contact with the skin, metallic objects, such as jewelry, can reduce heat transmission protection and thus may increase the risk of burn injuries in the event of a fire,” the FIA wrote. “Wearing jewelry during the competition can impede both medical interventions as well as subsequent diagnosis and treatment if an accident occurs.”
According to the FIA, jewelry can snag during emergency vehicle removal and can also complicate or delay medical imaging.
