This comes as Lewis Hamilton was recently seen having dinner with Shakira after finishing second in the Spanish Grand Prix.
Mercedes recently shared a post on social media that has drawn some attention amid recent rumors linking Lewis Hamilton to music icon Shakira.
Following previous races in Miami and Spain, Shakira and Hamilton were seen together leading to speculation that they are dating. The Colombian singer is thought to have met a number of the seven-time World Champion’s close friends.
However, the Daily Mirror claims that Hamilton wasn’t the first person to express interest in the pop singer recently. Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise and Shakira were allegedly “flirting” around the time Hamilton got involved because the two were spotted together on the grid during the Miami Grand Prix.
In an amusing move, Mercedes recently shared a number of images from recent races on social media, one of which featured Cruise and Shakira. Given their frequent appearances together, Cruise and Hamilton are actually thought to be very close friends.
Hamilton and Shakira’s agents have not officially acknowledged the rumors linking them, as Cruise’s team has as well not responded.
Given that the Canadian Grand Prix is scheduled to take place this weekend, the Mercedes star is probably not going to be thinking about a potential love triangle right now.
Hamilton is aiming for another great performance this weekend after placing third at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve last year. The 103-time race winner arrives in Canada after finishing second in the Spanish Grand Prix, where he proved Mercedes has tremendous pace after upgrading the W14.
However, Max Verstappen easily defeated him, and he is the undisputed favorite to win on Sunday marking his sixth race win in 2023.
Hamilton may find it difficult to finish on the podium as Mercedes anticipates the W14 to perform worse in Canada than it did in Spain. The Silver Arrows, who have a tendency to perform better in circuits consisting primarily of high and medium-speed turns, are likely going to have trouble with the low-speed corners.
Hamilton has a remarkable record in Montreal despite this, having won the Canadian GP a record seven times together with legendary seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher.
The Brit would go on to become the most successful driver at the historic venue where he won his maiden Formula One race in 2007, with a surprise victory this weekend.
