If his aim was to look like a douche, then yes its better at that

OMG he has a black hat with the team logo, what a douche.

 

Jesus Christ.

I think the cap is pretty cool and will definitely pick one up. It's reminiscent of Ferrari's huge caps circa 2007, 2008.

:confused:  That doesn't look any different from a regular F1 cap in terms of dimensions to me.

Can the mods please rename the thread "Rosberg won't wear Mercedes cap"? :p

The cap is not different to  Kimis/ Lotus or Alonsos. I find it a lot better than the McLaren, RBR or other Merceded caps.

Finally a design everyone can wear without looking like a dwarf  or a clown

Haha, I really like his driving. I do.

But whereas people often try to distinguish themselves from stereotypes - he seems to be actively persuing it. What's next? Wearing a jersey 4 sizes too large and walking around with his shoes basically untied?

Yeah, F him and his personal choices. How dare he not act and dress how complete strangers imagine he should.

Ha, yeah well... In the world I live in, people tend to make inferences about you based on how you present yourself and treat you accordingly. Now he's fortunate to be in a situation where he has to care very little. Granted, I were him - famous, stinking rich and damn good - I wouldn't give a damn what some anonymous person on an internet forum has to say.

I am completely the opposite of his gangsta/rap/basketball clothing style, but I will be buying this cap if it's available in Mercedes store  :up: It's a normal, classic cap, but with well thought logos placement, so it doesn't look dumb like wearing huge Vodafone on your forehead  :lol:

I think Villeneuve left the sport around 7 years ago.

next step will be to replace the Merc's silver arrow logo with New York yankee's logo

So now Lewis got his redesigned cap.

Looks much better:

Why did he go with black. I though Lewis was all about the Bling, so shiny silver would have been much better :confused:

I have a feeling Lewis is going to cause a sensation today at some point, by taking his cap off again.

I think the cap actually suits him and even compliments the chin strap. It's a good design that aligns with Mercedes' quest to attract a younger customer using using cars like the CLA and A-Class. 

 

Let's hope the cap won't be 50 quid.

Quite a lot people on twitter already asked if the cap is available, so job done for the new design
. IMo it will sell very well

Must be that friday feeling, when an F1 drivers mental state is assessed by his reluctance or enthusiasm to wear a baseball cap.

Just reminds me why I don't like him. Thinks he bigger than the other drivers, bigger than Mercedes and a now thinks he's a clothing designer too. I'm sure plenty of other drivers don't like the caps, but they know it's part of the deal and just get on with it. Ironically the man is the most clueless dresser since MS and looks generally like a cock in his tacky bling anyway.

Have you looked at Merc's merchandise selection the past three years? It's been way behind Ferrari, Lotus and Mclaren's selection of team gear. I don't blame Lewis for wanting to get involved and I wouldn't be surprised if this caps sells exceptionally well. It's a nice collectors piece for fans.

:lol: :rolleyes:

 

He can dress how he likes and plenty of people will like the look, but that doesn't make him a highly qualified fashion designer, and I fail to see why he should be seen as different to every other driver that's ever had to wear a crappy corporate cap; if it's good enough for them why isn't it good enough for him? I could sympathise if he's told to wear it everywhere, but it's only a few minutes at a press conference or podium. Let's face it, the other kit is hardly 'fashionable';you wouldn't go clubbing in a bright red or silver race suit.

Wow are you serious? Lewis is just a normal human being just like almost everyone here on this board. Kimi brought the trend of huge caps into F1 and fashion-aware drivers picked up on it, nothing more to this story.

Mercedes obviously does not think like you, and are perfectly happy with Lewis and his cap preferences. If not they would not have allowed him, to do what he does

 This whole issue is happening inside your head with no input from Lewis or Mercedes. You have literally created an argument with yourself for no apparent reason. :stoned:

 

 

And can someone start a new thread: Did Hamilton's new cap make him drive faster in Singapore practice?

you said the way he dresses makes him look like a cock... what is wrong with how he dresses ? he dresses like millions of other people, just because you can't relate to the demographic who dress that way doesn't mean they all look like cocks.

 

you're basically saying that most young black men look like cocks...
