Lewis Hamilton is a celebrity best known for his achievements in Formula 1. The British athlete has won seven world titles and over 100 Grand Prix races.
Due to his popularity, Hamilton’s personal life has attracted a lot of attention around the world. In particular, his previous relationship with Nicole Scherzinger was closely followed by the press. However, Hamilton recently shared why he hasn’t been in another long-term relationship since their split.
F1 driver Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger have had an unbroken relationship for 7 years
Hamilton’s relationship with the former Pussycat Dolls singer reportedly began in 2007. In the years that followed, the two were often spotted together at events and on social media. They had an on-and-off relationship that ended in 2015.
Since then, Hamilton and Scherzinger have occasionally discussed the split. According to The Sun, Hamilton said in 2016: “My cars are my babies. When I had a girlfriend, I used to say, ‘I’m going out with one of the girls, so you can come if you want, but you’re secondary when it comes to the cars.'”
However, in another interview, Hamilton also shared that their busy schedules played a role in the demise of their relationship.
“I think most athletes probably feel the same way,” he said, according to the Express. “It can be a little different since we travel as much as we do, and you’re just gone for crazy amount of time, so that’s probably an added weight burden that makes it really, really difficult to maintain a good relationship.”
Lewis Hamilton hasn’t had any long-term relationships since the split
It’s been seven years since Hamilton and Scherzinger split, but the Formula One driver admits he hasn’t seriously dated anyone since that relationship.
“I’m really super focused on work,” he told Vanity Fair in a new interview. “I’ve realized that I can’t do two or three things at the same time, I have to focus on one.”
Hamilton added, “I really wanted to go through a growth process to get myself to a point where I’m happy and comfortable in my space. So if I ever meet someone, it’s an complement rather than ‘I need you in my life.’”
Hamilton has done a lot outside of racing
Hamilton’s racing career has put him on people’s radar, but he’s done a lot more in recent years.
For example, he has ventured into music and acting. In 2018 he was featured on Christina Aguilera’s song “Pipe” under the name XNDA. Hamilton has also worked on films such as cars 2 and cars 3
Additionally, in 2018 Hamilton collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger to launch his own clothing line called TOMMYXLEWIS. He has also worked as an ambassador for luxury watch brand IWC.
In 2019, Hamilton helped start a vegan restaurant chain in London called Neat Burger. The restaurant has since won awards and even opened a location in New York City.
