Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton insists that he’s single despite rumors linking him romantically with Rihanna, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. Earlier this year, Hamilton broke up with Nicole Scherzinger, a former member of the Pussycat Dolls, after dating her for seven years.
Speaking on Britain's “Jonathan Ross Show,” Hamilton said he was enjoying the single life and is focusing on work. Rumors about Hamilton and Rihanna sparked in July when the Sun reported that they had spent a weekend together. Rihanna had also reportedly asked him to come to Rio in September so the two could spend time together. The singer was also spotted in August partying with Hamilton and spending a holiday weekend in Barbados.
“I’ve been in two relationships in my life, [one when] I was 18 to 22 and [then] 23 to 30 and so I missed the single life that all my friends had,” Hamilton said, during the interview, according to Daily Mail. “Now I’ve just been throwing myself at work, I’ve worked harder than ever this year, I’ve travelled like crazy, I’ve experienced everything I wanted to experience.”
“I’m enjoying it, it’s really good fun, it’s a fun period of time in my life.”
Hamilton was seen with Jenner in New York in September, after being romantically linked to her in May. The same month he was seen getting close to Hadid in French Riviera, Monaco, where Jenner was also present.
"Up until this year, I sacrificed everything so I never ever really went out," Hamilton reportedly said, adding: "Last year I think I might have gone out three times, it’s probably a bit too extreme."
"I think this year I don’t have any regrets about anything that happened this year and things I didn’t do, I just tried to make sure I juggled everything. … Not surprisingly I drove better than ever so I’m going to keep going out!"
