After a quiet winter making music and hanging out with his bulldogs, it’s almost time for Lewis Hamilton to go back to the day job and start another F1 season. So, regular as clockwork, here come the stories linking him with a hot female celebrity.
This year it’s “flirty texts” with Gigi Hadid! Gigi is, of course, fresh out of a two year relationship (/contract) with Zayn Malik.
It might all seem a bit silly but Lewis’s image is big business. This year, his F1 suit features 12 logos worth a total of £112m.
To put that into context: that’s more than the shirt sponsors and sleeve logos this season for Arsenal, Bournemouth, Brighton, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Everton, Huddersfield, Leicester, Newcastle, Southampton, Stoke, Swansea, Watford, West Brom and West Ham – combined.
FYI: Coincidentally, Lewis and Gigi are both paid to model for Tommy Hilfiger.
