His sense of style has come under question recently as he has experimented with floral shirts, skinny jeans and some interesting hair styles.
And now Lewis Hamilton has managed to get people talking once again as he decided to braid his hair before a holiday in Barbados.
Sharing a picture of his new look, the F1 driver wrote: “Barbados, we ready!! #Islandlife #Carnival2015”
Barbados, eh? Maybe there is some mileage in the rumours about him and Rihannaafter all.
Anyway his Instagram followers aren’t too taken with his new look and wasted no time commenting on it.
One user wrote: “Is he having a laugh.. clinging on for dear life to his barnet.”
Another added: “He lost his mind” while someone else wrote “Wtf is this Lewis”.
Earlier this year Lewis raised eyebrows when he revealed a fuller head of hair – which was in stark contrast to his usual cropped style.
Meanwhile it’s recently been reported that Lewis, who was previously dating Nicole Scherzinger, has been dating Rihanna.
A source said: “They’ve had a flirtation for years and have always fancied each other, but since May this year they’ve been talking a lot. Finally their schedules allowed them to spend a weekend in the same part of the world andthey made the most of it.”
“They are both really busy but Rihanna has asked him to come to Rock in Rio in September so he can see her perform and spend some time together.”
The couple set rumours flying after meeting at the Met Gala in New York earlier this year.
The source close to the 27-year-old beauty told The Sun on Sunday: “That’s when things between them started heating up. They started talking on text and it became constant and very flirty.”
