- Lewis Hamilton plays a key role in the evolution of Formula 1 according to Pierre Gasly.
- Hamilton is known for sporting fascinating outfits to the paddock during race weekends.
When it comes to fashion that makes one take one more glance, only one driver is doing it right in the paddock. Lewis Hamilton has made his name for his racing career but also the way he has evolved in recent years in terms of fashion. The Mercedes star first started his journey of self-expression through fashion when he was dating Pussycats Doll singer, Nicole Scherzinger.
However, after their split, the champion has only climbed the ladders of success to become a socialite. Often seen with his friends like Nina Dobrev and Shaun White, or partying at Coachella with Justin Bieber, the Briton has done it all. Yet, ahead of all his adventures lies his achievements in the world of fashion.
The Briton has created a certain buzz around his creativity and the way he manages to present himself. Whether it is his impeccable fashion sense or his uniqueness that makes him stand out is up for debate but with a clear answer that he is nothing less than the demigod of fashion in F1. And while he has achieved plenty, he has opened many doors for his juniors in the sport too.
