FIA gems ban: Lewis Hamilton ties a rope / Formula 1

FIA gems ban: Lewis Hamilton ties a rope / Formula 1


The power struggle between Formula 1 race director Niels Wittich and Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton is over: The Englishman gave his nose before training.

Careful Formula 1 fans have not forgotten: The FIA ​​World Cup ban will be enforced on the Silverstone GP weekend. In other words, anyone wearing jewelry in a race car faces a fine and ban in the event of a repeat offense. Formula 1 race director Niels Wittich, who is also responsible for the safety of GP drivers, insists on this ban because he classifies gems as a safety hazard in an accident.

In Silverstone, it was discovered that the 103-time GP winner Lewis Hamilton came in with a runny nose on Thursday but otherwise got into a race car on Friday.

For weeks, law enforcement officials have been insisting that no gemstones can be worn on a race car. In defiance, Lewis Hamilton appeared at a press conference in Miami covered in bling, not to mention three hours. It was said in Miami that the blind eye would be blinded by the Spanish GP, but after that the ban would be enforced from time to time – for fines, if necessary by ban.

That did not happen because Hamilton said that part of his jewelry would not be easily removed. So the transition period was accepted: the blind eye was blinded until the end of June, but not again.

Seven-time Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton said in Florida: “If it’s true about safety, why did I drive a Formula 1 car for 16 years without any jewelry ever discussed?”

Lewis Hamilton in Monte Carlo: “I think we spend a lot of time on this debate. I think I said everything about that topic last weekend of the GP.”

In Silverstone, Hamilton said Thursday when asked what was going on about wearing jewelry: “I think it’s a little crazy that we’re discussing something like this, and everything going on in the world. I still believe we have the most important issues to discuss in Form 1. I’m driving this weekend , I work with the FIA ​​and I do not consider it very important. “

Unfortunately, drivers are still allowed to wear wedding rings.
