Lewis Hamilton showcases his kooky sense of style in a vibrant Burberry shirt and red trousers ahead of the French Grand Prix

He’s well-known for his love of kooky fashion. 

And Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton, 37, was certainly no wallflower when he appeared at the French Grand Prix in Le Castellet on Thursday.

The Mercedes driver stood out from the crowd in a vibrant Burberry shirt emblazoned with the words ‘Universal Passport’ across it.

He teamed it with a pair of red trousers and stepped out in a pair of monochrome rubber boots.

The sportsman wore gold-rimmed glasses and a black Prada baseball hat after arriving on site, with the Grand Prix lasting from Friday until Sunday. 

Looking focused, Lewis strolled through the paddocks holding his iPhone and a black face mask ahead of a chaotic few days of racing.

The outing comes after Lewis showed his support behind the climate activists who invaded the track at this years British Grand Prix earlier this month, where he took a record 13th podium at a single race. 

Northamptonshire Police said seven people were arrested after the invasion on the opening lap of the Silverstone contest, after five protestors stormed the Wellington Straight before sitting down.

The race had already been suspended following Zhou Guanyu‘s high-speed crash, followed by a 53-minute delay before the restart in a high octane, action-packed day at Silverstone.

Hamilton, perhaps to many fans’ surprise, backed the protests on Twitter – understood to be from climate activist group Just Stop Oil – although he warned that storming the track on race day was far too dangerous.

The seven-time world champion said: ‘As we’ve seen today, this is a very dangerous sport.

‘I wasn’t aware of the protests today, and while I’ll always support those standing up for what they believe in, it must be done safely. 

‘Please don’t jump onto our race circuits to protest, we don’t want to put you in harm’s way.’

The quintet were swiftly dragged away by marshals to huge cheers from the watching crowd.

But in a race that saw ambulances and emergency crews called to the scene, there could very nearly have been further incidents after the protestors stormed the fastest part of the track.
