Lewis Hamilton has revealed taht he is refusing to wear Mercedes‘ team cap because it is not his style.

While team chairman Niki Lauda is famous for his cap, 2008 world champion and Spa pole sitter Hamilton has not been seen wearing one at all this year.

“I would like to help to design the Mercedes team clothing,” Hamilton told Bild am Sonntag newspaper in a wide-ranging interview.

“I don’t totally like what we have at the moment — that’s why I don’t wear the cap.

“But the team is working on it,” the Briton laughed, “we are well on the way!”

    This is pure selfishness. This guy is not a team player. Surely sending the wrong message to the team and all fans of the Silver Arrows. What a ungrateful Putz.

    If the competition wants to slow Lewis down all they need to do is place a full length mirror in front of the Pitts and Lewis will stop and admire himself every time. Now he wants to design the teams clothing because he doesnt look good in it. Talk about taking the vane F1 drive to a whole new level!

    Pure vanity. This guy’s antics are starting to get old.

    What? So the guy likes to create or design something that he likes more than what is available. Why not.

    But then again looking at his helmet this year it is the ugliest design I have seen in the last decade.
