Lewis Hamilton will wear jewellery when competing at the Australian Grand Prix in an apparent swipe at the FIA. New race director Niels Wittich reminded drivers to not wear jewellery when behind the wheel in his pre-race notes. 

However, Hamilton was spotted wearing earrings before putting his helmet on. Speaking on Sky Sports F1, Ted Kravitz suggested the FIA would now have a grace period for the new rules.

He said: “It seems there might be a grace period for a couple of races on that. Lewis Hamiton not doing anything about that, it seems like he is going to defy that order from the new race director. 

“Maybe he has got some grace period on that for a couple of races. Lewis Hamilton seems to think ‘Im not going to pay any attention to that’ and not change anything.”
