Hamilton refusing to wear team cap in 2013

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he is refusing to wear Mercedes' team cap.

While team chairman Niki Lauda is famous for his cap, 2008 world champion and Spa pole sitter Hamilton has not been seen wearing one at all this year.

"I would like to help to design the Mercedes team clothing," Hamilton told Bild am Sonntag newspaper in a wide-ranging interview.

"I don't totally like what we have at the moment -- that's why I don't wear the cap.

"But the team is working on it," the Briton laughed, "we are well on the way!"
