Hamilton given jewellery exemption for Miami and Spain rounds

Lewis Hamilton will be wearing his jewellery during the Miami Grand Prix weekend after being given an exemption by the FIA, RacingNews365.com understands.

Lewis Hamilton has been given an exemption by the FIA that will allow him to wear unremovable jewellery during the Miami Grand Prix weekend, RacingNews365.com understands. The seven-time World Champion made clear that he was unable to remove some of his jewellery items after a clampdown by the FIA. It has long been written in the Sporting Regulations that certain jewellery items cannot be worn by drivers, despite the rule having rarely been enforced.

Hamilton has until Monaco to remove jewellery

Ahead of the Miami GP weekend, Hamilton suggested that Mercedes may have to turn to a reserve driver should the FIA prevent him from racing. But now he has been given an exemption, RacingNews365.com understands, for the Miami and Spanish Grands Prix weekends, and has until the Monaco Grand Prix (27-29 May) to remove his "welded in" jewellery. However, Hamilton has stated that he has no plans to remove jewellery items, describing the FIA's clampdown as "a step backwards" for Formula 1 .
