Lewis ensemble comprised Kenzo’s Multi Pocket Jacket, which was originally priced at £675 before being slashed to £405, and matching Apron Trousers, which originally cost £385 before being reduced to £231.

He turned heads in the purple number, which proved practical with numerous pockets and zip-pouches on both the top and bottom half of his outfit. 

He paired the look with Bottega Veneta’s Tire Boots in Black Plum colour, which ring in at an eye-popping £905.  

Keeping safe, Lewis ensured he wore a face mask alongside a pair of black sunglasses.

Sunday’s upcoming race comes after Lewis posted a statement on Instagram on Tuesday discussing inclusion of minorities in motorsport.  

In the post, which was a photograph of him taking the knee before a race, he said: ‘I know there is still a lot to do when it comes to ensuring we have diversity and inclusion in our sport.

He is also closing in on a new Mercedes contract that will extend the world champion’s record-breaking stay with the team for at least one more season.

Sources close to the negotiations told Sportsmail that an agreement appears to be imminent, with an announcement expected before the summer break in August.

That was the timeframe both parties set themselves for what may be Hamilton’s final hurrah in Formula One.
