Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc have revealed an interest outside of racing.
Charles Leclerc has disclosed that Lewis Hamilton and he frequently talk about fashion while they are not competing in Grand Prix races.
With his frequent attendance at events like the Met Gala and his well-known love of fashion, Hamilton played a key role in bringing Tommy Hilfiger into Formula One as a sponsor of the Mercedes team.
Leclerc has highlighted how he has hesitantly followed in the seven-time champion’s footsteps while other racers like Max Verstappen or Lando Norris love online racing (with the World Champion scheduled to partake in the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans later this month).
Leclerc and Hamilton on fashion
Leclerc admitted to Italy’s La Gazzetta Dello Sport that he had begun a “fashion” project but has since abandoned it.
“Hopefully, I can pick it up again in the future.
“Sometimes [Lewis and I] talk about the brands we like,” added the Monegasque racer.
“He has good taste and a lot of courage to show himself [in the paddock] with [his sometimes eye-catching attire].
“[Fashion] is expressing yourself without speaking, I’ve understood that since I’ve been travelling around the world for Formula 1.
“I found out that dressing well has a different meaning in different cultures and traditions.
“Fashion really started to interest me in [around] 2017.
“I started visiting fashion shows and becoming an ambassador for Armani – and so that’s how I got more into the fashion world.”
