The seven-time world champion summoned by the stewards of the Singapore GP: he will have to show up at the end of qualifying because of the nose piercing, now prohibited by the new safety regulations
Seven-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton will have to present himself in front of the race marshals at the end of qualifying for the Singapore GP. The British would have violated the safety rules by going on the track with metal objects on the skin, now prohibited because they risk causing burns to the drivers.
Hamilton was summoned as soon as the third free practice at the Marina Bay circuit ended, for “violation of appendix L, chapter 3 of the FIA sporting regulations”, which prohibits drivers from wearing jewelery and metal objects on the skin during track activities. The dispute seems to be related to the piercing that Hamilton would have on his nose, which he had already been asked to remove in the recent past. Lewis had already expressed his opinion controversially, calling the discussion of this aspect of the regulation “a waste of time”.
