Lewis Hamilton stuns with zebra outfit ahead of 2023 Australian GP

Lewis Hamilton has shared his intent on staying with Mercedes beyond 2023 despite him not putting pen to paper yet.

Seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton has arrived at the Australian Grand Prix in style, with the Mercedes driver having been spotted wearing a unique design.

Hamilton rocked up to his media duties in Melbourne wearing a bright red and green zebra-print waistcoat, a blue and pink patterned shirt along with matching trousers.

The 38-year-old has been known over the years to arrive to the paddock whilst showing off his edgy fashion sense, which is also captured by the camera.

The 103-time race winner is hoping for a strong weekend at the Albert Park Circuit this weekend, a venue he’s previously won at twice.

Hamilton looked relaxed as he arrived into the paddock, perhaps as a result of having quashed any rumours suggesting that he could leave Mercedes this season.

With Hamilton yet to sign a new deal, it’s been speculated that he could leave the Brackley-based team once his contract expires in nine months’; however, he’s ruled out leaving the Silver Arrows.

The Briton is determined to help Mercedes push through their current difficulties and return to the top, a task that is set to be unbelievably difficult.

Following his comments, it’s likely that he will eventually retire at Mercedes, when that will be, though, is another question.

Hamilton will likely be taking it one race at a time given Mercedes’ current issues; however, there will be some hope that the new concept they introduce in Imola will remove some of their problems.

With that in mind, he’s certainly feeling motivated ahead of this weekend and shared on social media that he’s “on a mission”, something he has to remind himself when he feels “like stopping”.

“Some days I feel like stopping. When I start to feel this way I dig deep and remember I’m on a mission,” Hamilton wrote, alongside a video of him running topless.

“Whether you realise it or not, you’re on a mission too. We’re all chasing something.

“Some dream or goal that will make us better people, make our lives more fulfilling, and make us proud of ourselves.

“I know you’re with me, I feel the love and support and just know I’m sending it back to you tenfold. We got this.”
