“It’s kind of crazy to think that with everything that’s going on in the world, this is people’s focus,” the sport’s most successful driver of all time told reporters on Thursday.

Her nose and ear piercings were in place by then.

The ban on jewelry, as well as the use of non-conforming underwear, has been in the rules for a long time but is rarely enforced until the FIA ​​cracked down on them this season.
