Lewis Hamilton produces best qualifying performance of the season to seal third-place start at Singapore GP

LEWIS HAMILTON produced his best qualifying performance of the season – and then landed in hot-water with the FIA after defying their bling ban. In another day of drama, Hamilton was hauled in front of the picky race stewards to justify his reason for wearing a nose piercing, which is a breach of the FIA International Sporting Code. Hamilton, who was later let off, said: “I’m not trying to make a statement, no. Hamilton was asked about the reasoning for the FIA’s focus on such a trivial matter and added: “I really don’t know, man. “I’ve got a letter from a doctor… I’ve tried my best. While FIA medics supported Hamilton’s reasoning and took no further action, his Mercedes team however, were fined €25,000 (£22,400) for not telling the FIA he was wearing his piercing.
