Lewis Hamilton catches the eye in a black military-style ensemble

He was recently abused by trolls after his controversial British Grand Prix win against Max Verstappen.

But Lewis Hamilton, 36, shook off the negativity on Thursday as he arrived for previews ahead of this weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix in Budapest.

The Formula 1 star opted for an all-black outfit and wore a military-style black nylon Fendi jacket with an American flag on the left sleeve.

He paired his black leather pants with a pair of red-soled boots and completed his look with a pair of silver rings.

The Hertfordshire-born star, who held his cell phone with a purple case, adorned his look with chunky and delicate silver chains.

Always looking gentle, Lewis protected his eyes with a pair of oversized sunglasses and shielded those around him with a black face mask.

It comes after Mercedes hinted that police should investigate some of the despicable statements made against their star driver and called on social media companies to do more to stop racist posts before they go online – and shut down the perpetrators’ accounts.

The seven-time world champion, who is a vocal supporter of the BLM movement, is leading a campaign for more drivers from black and ethnic minority groups.

After the race, where Sir Lewis was hit by a 10-second penalty but won the race and narrowed the gap in the title race to just eight points, he received a slew of racial slurs on Instagram.

It was also the platform of choice for racists who abused Bukayo Saka, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford after their penalty misses in the Euro 2020 final this month.

Last week, Lewis’ team Mercedes released a joint statement with Formula 1 and the sport’s governing body, the FIA, condemning the abuse.

This put more pressure on social media giants to take steps to filter comments, ban racists and help police punish them if necessary.

“Formula 1, the FIA ​​and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team condemn this behavior in the strongest possible terms,” ​​they said.

“These people have no place in our sport and we urge those responsible to be held accountable for their actions. Formula 1, the FIA, the drivers and the teams are working towards a more diverse and inclusive sport, and such unacceptable cases of online abuse must be highlighted and eliminated.”

Facebook, which owns Instagram, insists it filters comments, but added: “Nothing will solve this challenge overnight.”

A spokesperson said: “In addition to our work to remove comments and accounts that repeatedly break our rules, there are security features available, including comment filters and message monitoring, which can mean no one needs to see this kind of abuse.

“Nothing will solve this challenge overnight, but we are committed to working to protect our community from abuse.”
