Lewis Hamilton prepares for Monaco GP with fashion show appearance

Lewis Hamilton is targeting his fourth win at Monaco this weekend, having last won at the iconic venue in 2019.

Seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton has certainly been enjoying himself ahead of this weekend’s iconic Monaco Grand Prix, a race he’s won three times in his career.

Hamilton’s first victory at the Circuit de Monaco came back in 2008 whilst driving for McLaren, before going on to win his maiden title that season.

The 38-year-old had to wait eight years until he claimed victory at Monaco for the second time in 2016, in what was his first Monaco victory for Mercedes.

Hamilton’s third win at the Principality came a few years later in 2019, after putting on a defensive masterclass to defeat reigning World Champion Max Verstappen.

The British driver would love to claim a fourth win at Monaco this weekend; however, the odds are certainly not in his favour.

Despite this, he appears to be in good spirits ahead of the weekend, having been spotted at a fashion show in Cannes.

Hamilton attended a Versace fashion show in Cannes hosted by famous designer Donatella Versace, with the Mercedes star having taken the time to have a photo with the fashion icon.

The 103-time race winner was snapped with Versace and popstar Dua Lipa, who co-designed the brand’s summer collection.

Attending a huge fashion event is certainly a very Monaco-esque way of preparing for the most famous Grand Prix of them all, with it arguably being the one race on the calendar which every driver wants to win.

Whilst Hamilton’s chances of winning this weekend are slim, the Briton will at least be able to benefit from the team’s new concept, which is being introduced in Free Practice 1 on Friday.

The W14’s new sidepods have already been seen on social media, with the Silver Arrows having returned to a more traditional design.

Hamilton will be hoping that the upgrades result in better performance, especially with him having been incredibly critical about the W14 in the opening rounds of the year.

Should the new concept work then Hamilton will be delighted; however, if no improvement is made then the Stevenage-born driver and the team will likely be feeling a little bit lost.
