F1’s Lewis Hamilton records secret R&B album

But it's unlikely that the driving ace will release the LP…

Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton has recorded a secret album of R&B tracks, according to reports.

The Sun says that the racing driver has been working on his own material at the same studio used by artists such as Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue, but isn’t planning on releasing the LP.

A source said: “Not many people know Lewis has been making music in his spare time.

“He’s really into his R&B and has been cutting lots of songs that fit in with his taste. At the moment he’s fully focused on F1 so it’s unlikely that any of the tracks will be made public.

“But he’s had good feedback from the few people who have heard them,” they added.

Hamilton has been in an on-off relationship with Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger for the past four years. In July of this year it was claimed that the pair had become engaged, but subsequent reports suggested that the couple had split up because of their hectic work schedules.

Scherzinger released her solo debut album, ‘Killer Love’, in March of this year.
