Despite their late arrivals to the Formula One race that cemented Lewis Hamilton’s second World Championship title, Hamilton’s girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger, his father Anthony, and brother Nicolas made it to Abu Dhabi when the F1 driver raced to the finish line to claim the title. An ecstatic Scherzinger kissed Hamilton even before the racer was able to take off his helmet. Fresh from a gig in Germany the night before, the pop star wore a form fitting black dress which made her look extra stylish.
Prior to the race, Hamilton said, “The energy that is in the crowd here and all the flags means the world to me. I hope we can put on a good show for them.” He added, “I am going to do the same as I always did, race it like I stole it. I will always race for the win. We’ll play it by ear, but I am racing to win. I am going to do my best to get as far ahead as possible. I feel great.” Hamilton defeated his teammate and rival Nico Rosberg, who was in the pole position at the start of the race. Rosberg finished in 14th place after he suffered engine problems.

With Hamilton now at a high point in his racing career, there are rumors that Scherzinger should expect a wedding proposal soon. According to a spokesperson for William Hill, “Nicole was as emotional as Lewis was at the end of the Abu Dhabi GP and after a very on off relationship it seems as if they are very firmly on at the moment and a wedding may be on the cards soon.”
Hamilton and Scherzinger have been dating on and off since 2007, but Scherzinger admitted that she wants to have children with the 2-time F1 champion someday. “Oh my gosh! If I had little English kids with little English accents that would tickle me,” she said in an interview.
