The Public Wants Hamilton and Rihanna TogetherWednesday, August 7, 2013 15:20 by Arman Barari
Time for a spot of motoring-related celebrity gossip. British Formula 1 hotshot Lewis Hamilton – who has definitely got a thing for female singers with dark complexion – and Rihanna are, apparently, getting more ‘intimate’. The two recently spent a whole night partying and having fun together in Monaco.
Hamilton has been dating Pussycat Dolls’ lead singer Nicole Scherzinger since 2008, and although it’s been on and off, Lewis always seemed invested in the relationship, even after the brake up. The F1 driver dedicated his historic Hungarian GP win last month to Scherzinger.
As for the situation between Hamilton and Rihanna, while things have been quiet since the party night, it seems that the public is very interested in seeing the couple together. In a recent survey by Victoria Milan, Lewis Hamilton was voted the hottest Formula 1 driver, and Rihanna the hottest F1 girlfriend, even though they are not officially together.
Granted, the source of the survey is not the best kind you can get – after all, it is a dating site for cheaters! – but that doesn’t change the fact that a lot of people think these guys should be able to make it. It also shows that Hamilton is by far the trendiest F1 driver with the greatest media worth, as far as F1′s businessmen are concerned.
After Hamilton who was picked as the hottest driver with 23.9% of the vote, Jenson Button came second with 18.8% and Mark Webber third with 17.2%. The girlfriends in second and third place were Dasha Kapustina with 27.3% and Jessica Michibata with 11.7%, respectively.
