Lewis Hamilton Steps Out in National Dress as He Declares Love For Bahrain

He may have only come in at third place this weekend at the Bahrain Grand Prix, but Lewis Hamilton has been loving life in the region.

The three-time Formula One champion - and Nicole Scherzinger's former fiancé - shared snaps of himself via Instagram in national dress.

Lewis fell behind in his big race on Sunday after a race car collision while representing Great Britain in his Mercedes vehicle. Germany's Nico Roseberg ended up taking the top spot.

He posted after the loss: "Not every day is going to go the way we envisioned or planned. What's important is how you handle what life throws at you. That's what defines you.

"Today I did the best with what I was given, and considering the circumstances, am happy to have fought my way on to that podium! Thank you to my team@mercedesamgf1 for doing an amazing job, and to #TeamLH out here in Bahrain for showing so much love!!! God bless!!"

The 31-year-old certain is a fan of the Middle East; he wore a special helmet to the Abu dhabi Grand Prix last year in recognition of the UAE's National Day.
