Kris Jenner reportedly thinks that Lewis Hamilton is the “perfect” match for her daughter Kendall Jenner. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star is encouraging her daughter to strike up a relationship with the racing star. Kendall, 19, attended the Monaco Grand Prix over the weekend with her friends to cheer on Hamilton. The group of women included Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Kendall’s sister Kylie Jenner, Cara Delevingne and Hailey Baldwin.

“Lewis and Kris have become friendly in recent months. Kris is apparently eager for her daughter to date the 30-year-old world champion because he would be a 'good influence,' while his profile would also help boost Kendall’s career,” an insider revealed. The source told the Sun newspaper that Kendall usually opts for bad boys like Chris Brown or Justin Bieber. In the past, the model has been linked to both Bieber and Brown, with reports claiming that it was with the former that things got the most serious. During the recent Coachella music festival in California, Kendall was spotted with the 21-year-old Bieber.

The suggestion from Kris Jenner followed a claim that Hamilton had started dating Kendall's friend, 20-year-old model Gigi Hadid. He was spotted putting his arms round her waist and enjoying her company. The duo was even spotted spending time together during the recent Cannes Film Festival. The insider revealed that the pair has been on a couple of dates. Mirror UK has contacted a rep for Kris for comment.

Kendall might have competition from GiGi. Hadid was personally invited by Lewis to join him in Monaco. Meanwhile, Jenner was spotted at the race wearing his gold chain, which is apparently code for the fact they are now getting it on. Lewis split with long-term girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, 36, in February having started dating back in 2007. It has been reported that the former Pussycat Doll broke up with Hamilton because she was tired of his refusal to commit. The former "X Factor" judge said after the breakup that she was devastated that the relationship didn’t work and it was the hardest decision. But she added that they made the decision together.
