IT IS hardly surprising that Formula One superstar and reigning World Champion Lewis Hamilton has attracted a bevvy of beautiful ladies over the years – but it can be hard to keep up with his fast-moving love life.
From long-term love Nicole Scherzinger to his rumoured flings with Sofia Richie and Barbara Palvin, we’ve got the lowdown on his colourful love life…
2018: Nicki Minaj
There were reports doing the rounds that Lewis and Nicki Minaj were dating after they were spotted at New York Fashion Week together.
The pair also shared social media pictures of a getaway in Dubai.
However Nicki is now married to Kenneth Petty.
Lewis was pictured climbing into a cab with a handful of hotties after a wild night out in London during fashion week.
The Formula One ace proved in pole position both on and off the track when he hitched a ride home with a glamorous gang – who included German model Jasmine Sanders.
Lewis, was accompanied by Brazilian football star Neymar, who later took the motor-racing driver’s ex Barbara Palvin back to an East London flat.
Sofia Richie: 2017
Earlier in 2017, Lewis was rumoured to be enjoying a fling with model Sofia Richie, the daughter of singer Lionel.
The driver sat with his rumoured beau in the front row at Paris’ Couture Fashion Week back in January, and took her for a ‘lunch date’ in May.
Winnie Harlow: 2016-17
Model Winnie Harlow was first spotted getting close to Lewis at the GQ Awards in September 2016, when The Sun’s Dan Wootton reported that they left the London party in separate cars – so nobody would cotton on.
They were also pictured getting cosy at the amfAR Gala in Cannes, in May 2017.
Stunning Winnie, who has a rare skin condition called vitiligo, is now one of the most recognisable faces in fashion.
Barbara Palvin: 2016
Lewis’ budding romance with Hungarian model Barbara Palvin was confirmed in The Sun’s Bizarre column in June 2016.
They met at Cannes Film Festival, and a source close to Barbara revealed: “She and Lewis were only in Cannes for a short time but got on like a house on fire.
“They hung out every day and partied at night. By the end of the trip they were really close.
“They’ve been keeping in touch, with plans to meet up again soon.”
She went on to support him at the European, Hungarian and Monaco Grand Prix.
Lewis and Rita Ora never confirmed their relationship, but they were spotted together on numerous occasions.
They even enjoyed a secret sunshine break together in July 2016, while Rita was supposedly pictured leaving his apartment after spending the night together later that summer.
In November of the same year, Rita played the loyal girlfriend by supporting him at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – where Lewis was forced to surrender his crown to Nico Rosberg.
Rihanna and Lewis have been friends for years, but they were rumoured to have taken their relationship to a new level in 2015.
The pair are thought to have enjoyed a summer romance – as they spent a lot of quality time together in New York.
Nicole Scherzinger: 2007-2015
Nicole Scherzinger was Lewis’ on-off girlfriend for seven years, but they were long distance for much of the time.
The couple split for good in 2015, and the Pussycat Doll revealed she had cut all contact with her ex-boyfriend a year later.
Vivian Burkhardt: 2008
Beauty queen Vivian Burkhardt represented Grenada in the Miss World pageant in 2007 – and went on to win Lewis’ heart.
The couple appeared at a number of events together in 2008 – but only dated for a few months.
Lotta Hintsa: 2006
Vivian was far from the first pageant star Lewis dated. According to rumours, he previously dated Miss Finland Lotta Hintsa.
Lotta is the daughter of Lewis’ F1 mentor Aki Hintsa – who passed away in 2016, at the age of 58.
The model confirmed that she had a good relationship with Lewis, but denied that they had ever dated.
Jodia Ma: 2003-2007
Jodia Ma dated Lewis for four years, until they finally parted ways in June 2007.
The childhood sweethearts met at the Cambridge School of Arts and Science, back when Lewis was first establishing himself as a sports star.
Jodia, a restaurant receptionist now based in Hong Kong, was studying event management.
While Lewis was trying to catch up on his GCSE exams.
Danielle Lloyd: 2002
Glamour girl Danielle dated Lewis for six months in 2002, when he was a budding F3 driver.
“It was love a first sight,” she later said. “I’m so pleased for Lewis. To see him doing so well makes me proud.”
The pair met at celebrity haunt 10 Rooms and remained friends after their split. Lewis even turned up to see Danielle crowned Miss England in 2004.
