Lewis Hamilton has pictured himself rocking a new look as he relaxes in the Caribbean.

The Mercedes driver, who currently leads the Formula One world championship 21 points ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg, is currently enjoying his mid-season break in Barbados.

With the drivers not racing again until 23 August, the 30-year-old has been on holiday in the mountains of Colorado, before heading to sunnier climes this week.

Taking to his Instagram account, the driver, who has become something of a style icon in recent years, posted his new look corn rows.

"Barbados, we ready!! #Islandlife #Carnival2015" he posted on the picture-sharing app.

But the look didn't go down well at all with users, with some even threatening that they were no longer his fans because of the dodgy braids.
