Lewis Hamilton escapes punishment for wearing jewelry and can keep his nose in Monaco…
- Lewis Hamilton has been involved in feud with the FIA over jewelry
- The FIA has threatened to punish the Mercedes star for wearing a nose stud
- For now, however, Hamilton has managed to avoid punishment
- The FIA has claimed they will impose their rules at Silverstone in July
Lewis Hamilton will be allowed to race jewels in Monaco on Sunday after the FIA kicked the controversy on the road.
Instead of punishing the seven-time world champion as they had promised, the governing body granted him another month’s exemption to remove his nose bud.
The FIA insist that they only give Hamilton enough opportunity to get the job done properly and will change their rule that they don’t wear jewelry at the British Grand Prix on July 3.

New president Mohammed ben Sulayem listened to Hamilton and his fellow drivers in Barcelona last weekend before agreeing to extend the time frame.
Bringing the new deadline back to the eve of Silverstone will further raise the temperature, with 140,000 fans expected to attend the race.
Hamilton said: “Too much time and energy is being spent on this.
“There are bigger fish to fry.”
