Lewis Hamilton’s possible stand-in at the Monaco Grand Prix, Nyck de Vries, is set to take a Williams seat in FP1 of this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix
. De Vries currently serves as reserve driver for Mercedes and McLaren but will take over from Alex Albon after rule changes were introduced ahead of the new season which mandates the use of rookie drivers on at least two occasions during first free practice throughout 2022.

 

 

Hamilton has been involved in another media storm in recent weeks after the FIA decided to crack down on drivers wearing jewellery amid safety concerns. He has been reluctant to remove his jewellery and has said he will instead ask for an exemption to be granted for the remainder of the season.

 

 

The Briton has maintained he is unable to take his earrings and nose ring out and attended a press conference before the Miami Grand Prix earlier this month embellished with three watches, eight rings, four necklaces and two earrings as a protest.

 

 

Hamilton has been told he must ensure he is following the rules by the time he arrives for the Monaco Grand Prix on the final weekend of May. And there have been suggestions that he could be banned from the street race if he fails to comply.
