He’s known for his quirky sense of style.

And Lewis Hamilton, 36, ensured he caught the eye of onlookers as he stepped out in a funky blue and black Burberry kilt with a matching top and trousers by the brand at the Istanbul Park Circuit on the Turkish Grand Prix preparation day on Thursday.

The racing driver wore a blue and black coat from Burberry as he wrapped up warm in the multi-layered ensemble as he emerged in the cooler autumn weather.

Lewis was sure to make his presence known as he treated the race track like a runway in his stylish ensemble complete with kilt and trousers.  

The sportsman accessorised with a pair of dark sunglasses and carried a small black bag on a strap over his shoulder.

Lewis completed his look with a pair of chunky black boots as he walked along.

The star added a black face covering to his look to adhere to the Turkish rules to wear a mask in public places in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

The Mercedes motorist was in Paris last week where he drove past the Arc de Triomphe, and, alongside the video of the iconic monument, penned: ‘J’adore Paris’ on Instagram.  

It comes after Lewis admitted that he will ‘never know exactly why’ he has never raced for Ferrari as the Mercedes star conceded that it is ‘everyone’s dream’ to represent the famous Formula One team.

He has spent his 14-year F1 career with two teams – McLaren and Mercedes – but came close to switching from the Silver Arrows to Ferrari in 2019 after holding talks with chairman John Elkan.

However, a move has never come to fruition and Hamilton’s immediate future is with Mercedes, having recently signed a new two-year deal with the team.

Yet the British star opened up on his confusion as to how a switch never materialised, before revealing that he has considered quitting the sport altogether.

‘For many years, when I came to Monza, walking next to the fans… I could hear them saying “Come to Ferrari!”‘ he told Sky Sport Italia.

‘This warmed my heart, but it’s pretty amazing that I’ve never driven for Ferrari in so many years. Because it is a dream for anyone, a goal to be achieved.

‘It has never really been possible and I will never quite know exactly why. 

‘I wish them the best and in my near future I will continue to prevent them from winning the world championship.’
