Lewis Hamilton has been forced to concede defeat in his battle over jewellery with the FIA. The Mercedes driver has taken out his nose stud ahead of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone this weekend.
The move comes after Hamilton had been left in a tense stand-off with the sport’s governing body after they decided to more rigorously enforce existing jewellery rules in the build up to the Miami Grand Prix. The seven-time World Champion initially refused to remove his jewellery and was given an exemption that was repeatedly extended to his home Grand Prix.
However, it now looks like he has been forced to stop wearing his precious metals with the star spotted without his nose stud ahead of free practice one at Silverstone.
