Lewis Hamilton shows off his quirky sense of style in a bold magenta suit and jacket… following furious X-rated outburst to his Mercedes team at Dutch Grand Prix

He was deemed ‘aggressive and insulting’ following his explicit eruption during the Dutch Grand Prix last weekend. 

However Lewis Hamilton appeared to put his woes behind him as he walked the paddock at Autodromo Nazionale in Monza, Italy on Thursday.  

The racing driver, 37, caught the eye in a baggy magenta suit and bundled up in a matching fleece jacket.

Looking every inch the sports star – Lewis added some extra bling wearing several silver rings on his fingers and a pair of sleeper earrings.

His appearance comes after former Formula 1 world champion Jacques Villeneuve slammed the motor sport legend last weekend. 

The Brit was outraged at the decision to pit his team-mate George Russell and put him on faster tyres while Lewis was in first place.

The result of the move meant that Red Bull driver Max Verstappen was able to catch up to Lewis and eventually overtake him to win the race.

The seven-time champion would end up missing out on a podium spot as he came in at fourth, with Russell even passing him to come second.

The Silver Arrows driver told his team: ‘I can’t believe you screwed me like that, I can’t tell you how p****d I am. That was the biggest f*** up.’

This outburst led to Jacques claiming that the attitude shown by Lewis ‘is not befitting a champion’ in his Formule1.nl column.

He said: ‘I was amazed by Lewis Hamilton’s outburst in the race and especially the way it was done.

‘He was aggressive, almost insulting. It is good that he has apologised, but this is not befitting a champion.

‘After everything the team has done for him, you shouldn’t be speaking to them like that.’

Hamilton did eventually apologise to his team and said that he continues to have ‘100% faith’ in the team.

He said on Instagram: ‘I didn’t get it right last week and we didn’t get it right today (Sunday), but we win and lose as a team.

‘We have been through worse. Everyone is doing their best and that’s all we can do.

‘We will rise and win again. I have 100% faith in this team and where we are heading.’

The result meant that Max Verstappen collected his 10th win of the year, which has increased his points advantage in the driver’s championship to 109, whereas Hamilton remains without a win this season and sixth in the standings.
