Lewis Hamilton rules whatever track he sets foot on but who has ruled the Briton’s heart?

The newly-crowned four-time world champion has consistently attracted a string of beautiful ladies, but much like his speed on the track, it is quite difficult to keep up with his fast-moving love life.

So here is a breakdown of Hamilton’s five most talked about relationships:

1. Winnie Harlow (2016 – 2017)

Model Winnie Harlow and Hamilton have been rumoured to be dating on and off since 2016. Rumours began flying after the duo were spotted getting close at the GQ awards in September 2016. Hamilton denied the rumours and repeatedly stated that they were simply friends.

However, after pictures of the couple cosying up to one another at the 2017 amfAR Gala in Cannes began making the rounds, romance rumours kicked in once again. Harlow was also seen cheering the Briton on at the Monaco Grand Prix in May and was spotted partying with Hamilton after his dominatint win at the British Grand Prix in July.

2. Sofia Richie (2017)

Earlier this year, the Mercedes Benz driver was linked to Lionel Richie’s daughter, Sofia Richie. Rumours of the pair dating were reported after they were photographed sitting together in the front row at Paris’ Couture Fashion Week.

Romance rumours were further fuelled after the alleged couple was pictured entering ‘Sugarfish’ – the Montage Hotel’s restaurant in Beverley Hills in May.

3. Rita Ora (2016)

Sometime in the middle of 2016, singer Rita Ora and Hamilton were said to be inseparable as they partied and travelled together. The pair tried to keep their getaway to Montenegro low key but were ultimately unsuccessful as the tabloids caught a sniff of their vacation.

They were reportedly seen cuddling on the deck of a private house on the River Bojana. Ora had also attended the 2016 Formula One season finale in Abu Dhabi to cheer the Mercedes Benz driver on.

4. Rihanna (2015)

In the summer of 2015, Hamilton was linked with global pop star, Rihanna. Rumours started circulating after Hamilton joined RiRi to celebrate Kadooment Day in Barbados. The Formula One superstar was said to have been smitten by RiRi’s beauty and sense of humour.

However, Hamilton shot down dating rumours in September 2015. He told E! Entertainment: “We’ve been friends for a while. We get to hang out every now and then… otherwise, we’re just good friends.”

5. Nicole Scherzinger (2008-2015)

This one was love for the world champion. Nicole Scherzinger and the Briton began dating in June 2008. Ever since, the couple endured a turbulent romance. Their on-again off-again high profile relationship was well documented by the tabloids.

However, after seven years of trying to make it work, both parties called it quits on their relationship in January 2015. This has been Hamilton’s most serious relationship till date.

Post separation, both parties asserted their personal commitments and career demands as the reasons for the split. The pair are now said to be good friends and have gone on record to wish each other the best.
