He’s preparing to compete in the 2021 Styrian Grand Prix on Sunday.

And Lewis Hamilton put his best fashion foot forward on Saturday wearing a black crochet shirt and shorts, which were adorned with flowers from Valentino costing more than £4,900. 

The Formula One driver, 36, who is known for his edgy fashion, donned the showstopping outfit as he arrived at the Red Bull Ring race track in Austria.

His Valentino bowling shirt, retailing at £3,390, was covered in lace with cut outs, and was covered in different colour flowers embroidered on.

He also donned a pair of matching Bermuda shorts from Valentino, costing £1,550. 

Despite the sunshine, he wore a pair of chunky black calfskin trekking boots from Dolce & Gabbana on his feet, retailing at £675, and wore several items of glitzy silver jewellery.

The racing car driver shielded his eyes from the glorious sun with stylish shades and pulled his hair back into a ponytail.

The Formula One campaign continues this weekend as the Styrian Grand Prix takes centre stage in the first of a double-header at the Red Bull Ring circuit in Austria. 

It comes just a week after the French Grand Prix, where Max Verstappen extended his lead to 12 points over Lewis in what was a thrilling race from start to finish.

Max started the race on pole but immediately handed Lewis the initiative with an uncharacteristic error.

Red Bull outfoxed their Mercedes counterpart with a brilliant two-stop strategy however, which saw the Dutchman overtake a helpless Lewis at the death to claim his third victory of the campaign.

With Red Bull winning three races in a row, they are creeping ahead in both the driver and constructor championships after seven races. 

Nonetheless, the campaign goes on, and it was Mercedes who won both of the two races in Austria last year, an outcome which is less expected this time round.  

The Styrian Grand Prix is set to take place on Sunday, June 27, with the race getting underway at 2pm BST. 

The first and second practice sessions will take place on Friday, June 25, with each session lasting an hour.  

The final practice session starts at 11am on Saturday morning, before qualifying gets underway on the same day at 2pm.
