Charles Leclerc has revealed how he and Formula 1 rival Lewis Hamilton often discuss fashion away from Grand Prix racing.

Hamilton is well-known for his love of fashion and is often present at shows such as the Met Gala, while he helped bring Tommy Hilfiger into F1 as a sponsor of the Mercedes team.

While other drivers such as Max Verstappen or Lando Norris enjoy online racing - with the World Champion set to compete in the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans later this month - Leclerc has revealed how he has tentatively followed in the seven-time champion's footsteps.

Leclerc and Hamilton on fashion

"I started a [fashion] project, but I've since stopped it," Leclerc told Italy's La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

"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."
