Lewis Hamilton embodies the racing spirit as he steps out in a daring checkered flag inspired ensemble ahead of the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix

He has had a three-week break since winning the first race of the season in Bahrain.

And Lewis Hamilton was all business-like as he strolled the Circuit Enzo e Dino Ferrari on Thursday ahead of Sunday’s Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Imola, Italy.

The seven-time world champion, 36, looked like the F1 star while embodying the racing spirit in a jacket and pants inspired by Jacquemus’s checkered flag.

Lewis stood out in his eye-catching ensemble, with £ 502 wide-leg pants and large side pockets.

His matching £ 420 collar jacket also featured the same eye-catching print, as did both buttons and a front zip.

To keep things comfortable, Lewis put on a pair of complementary white and blue trainers for the walk on the track with his trainer Angela Cullen.

The professional driver completed his pre-race weekend look with stylish sunglasses and a white face mask.

Lewis won the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix last year, with teammate Valtteri Bottas finishing in second place.

The coming race weekend has seen his planning rearranged somewhat to avoid overlapping with the beginning of Prince Philip’s funeral.

Saturday’s qualifying has now been moved forward by an hour and will now run from 1pm to 2pm, to avoid overlapping with the start of the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

Seven of the 10 teams are based in the UK and F1 wanted to avoid any embarrassment from Sir Lewis, who was awarded a knighthood on the December honors roll, and his fellow drivers fighting for pole at the start of the Windsor funeral.

The Duke, who was president-in-chief of the British Racing Drivers’ Club for 42 years, will be honored with a minute of silence before qualifying.

Friday’s times have also been changed in accordance with rules requiring the last workout to start no less than 19 hours after the end of the second workout.

The funeral at Windsor Castle begins with a national minute of silence at 3pm BST.

Lewis’ performance also comes after teasing a potential clothing line as he donned a personalized T-shirt with a photo of himself as a baby and wrote: ‘Coming Soon’ on Twitter

'Coming Soon': Lewis recently hinted that he is launching a clothing line when he revealed that the T-shirt he wore at the Bahrain Grand Prix featured a photo of SELF as a toddler

The driver looked typically stylish when he wore the purple printed T-shirt in Bahrain.

And he made sure the garment was in the spotlight in early April when he unveiled the adorable original photo on social media.

The throwback image was transformed into an electric purple image on the star’s slim-fit T-shirt, with the word ‘Loyalty’ above it.

After sharing the snaps on social media, fans were quick to ask Lewis if he’s launching a clothing line or possibly having kids.
