Start your engines, gentlemen. Your prayers have been answered! British racing car hotness Lewis Hamilton is (finally!) a single man. The Daily Mail first reported the breakup over the weekend:
The 26-year-old F1 racing driver - who is seven years younger than his girlfriend - decided to call time on their relationship because their conflicting work schedules meant they were seeing less and less of each other. The sportsman and Miss Scherzinger - who rose to fame as part of The Pussycat Dolls pop group - had been dating for four years.
The Hawaiian-born singer is part of the judging panel on X Factor USA, alongside Simon Cowell. As a result, she is based in Los Angeles, California. Hamilton, meanwhile, travels all over the world as one of the leading drivers in F1 and has a home in Switzerland.
Hamilton blames Simon Cowell, reports The Mirror.
Lewis says the X Factor supremo is one of the key reasons that his four-year romance with Nicole Scherzinger hit the skids. He reckons 52-year-old Cowell’s decision to offer Nicole a judging job on X Factor USA – replacing Cheryl Cole – put “immeasurable strain” on the couple’s relationship.
That's one spin. Or maybe he just wasn't that into her ....
Hamilton became the youngest driver and first Black to win the Formula One in November 2008. That was the same week that Barack Obama was elected America's first Black president.
