Following the Singapore Grand Prix third free practice session, Lewis Hamilton has been summoned to the stewards for an alleged breach of Appendix L, Chapter III of FIA’s International Sporting Code.
While the FIA didn’t state what the alleged breach was, photos have since emerged on social media, which show Lewis wearing a nose piercing while in his car during FP3.
This year, the Briton has been involved in a battle of words with the FIA over their jewellery ban for months, which many felt was aimed directly at him. He ultimately agreed to remove all his jewellery while in the car, however today it appears he was again wearing his nose piercing.

Well, now Mercedes has also been summoned for “inaccurate self-scrutineering form”. It is believed this means that Lewis’ nose stud wasn’t declared on the form.
There is also some talk that Lewis has the piercing in again on doctor’s orders, but no additional details are known.
When asked about this, Toto Wolff said: “I lost track of piercings and stuff, let’s see what the stewards say.”
UPDATE: Lewis Hamilton has been cleared of jewellery ban breach after providing a doctor’s certificate, while Mercedes has been fined €25,000 for not declaring the nose stud on the ‘self-scrutineering form’.
