Lewis Hamilton has been summoned to the stewards for an alleged violation of FIA rules concerning driver attire.
Shortly after FP3, the FIA announced that the seven-time World Champion and a team representative had been summoned to the stewards for an alleged violation of Appendix L, Chapter III of the FIA International Sporting Code.
This is the code for driver’s clothing, and it includes the rules for jewelry, which was a theme earlier in the season.
The meeting is set to begin at 19:45 local time, with a decision expected shortly after.
The mentioned sections of the FIA International Sporting Code are about helmets, flame-resistant clothing, frontal head restraints, safety belts, and the wearing of jewelry.
Drivers have been prohibited from wearing jewelry since 2005, but the FIA did not enforce the rule until this season, when the FIA pledged to take action.
Hamilton had removed his piercings for the last few races, as requested by the FIA, but he has been wearing his nose ring at the Singapore Grand Prix this weekend.
