According to reports, Lewis Hamilton and Shakira have just begun dating.
Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz allegedly played Cupid recently by introducing Lewis Hamilton to Shakira, according to Spanish sportswriter Pip Estrada.
Recently, there have been rumors that Hamilton and the famous Colombian singer have begun dating, with Sainz allegedly being the one who initiated the relationship. Estrada believes that Sainz introduced Shakira to F1 because he was aware that the seven-time world champion enjoyed the singer’s music.
Hamilton and Shakira’s representatives have not yet confirmed whether the two are dating, but they have been seen together frequently.
Shakira and Hamilton were spotted together on a yacht after the Miami Grand Prix before being spotted out having dinner recently following the Spanish Grand Prix. The seven-time World Champion was seen with Shakira, who was present at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
The pop sensation and the Mercedes driver allegedly spent time together in Miami before this weekend’s Canadian Grand Prix, a race he has won seven times.
The 38-year-old driver would pass Michael Schumacher to become the most successful driver in Canadian GP history with one more victory at the Circuit de Gilles-Villeneuve.
The domination of Red Bull and Max Verstappen, however, makes it very improbable that Hamilton will be able to claim victory on Sunday. The low-speed curves at the Canadian venue are expected to make the Grand Prix in general quite challenging for Mercedes despite their new design.
The W14 performed better at the Spanish GP because it is significantly better adapted to medium and high-speed turns.
Mercedes claimed two podium positions for the first time since the Brazilian Grand Prix of 2022, which was also the race where George Russell won his maiden Formula 1 race last year. However, in Canada, rain can be Hamilton’s advantage.
The current weather predictions indicate that it may be a rainy weekend in Montreal, which could present some opportunity for the 103-time race winner.
Given that the British driver behind Fernando Alonso by 12 points in the Drivers’ Championship, finishing ahead of the Aston Martin driver could potentially be considered a success.
