Nicole Scherzinger and Lewis Hamilton's date at the White House

With Formula 1 grinding to a halt until the end of August, Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger have been making the most of some free time together.

The couple, who recently celebrated their six year anniversary, have been touring Washington DC, where, thanks to Nicole's role as the global ambassador for the special Olympics, Lewis had the chance to meet Barack Obama at the White House.

"I had the pleasure to go to the White House & meet the president of the United States & 1st lady thanks to my lady @nicolescherzy, thank you :)," he wrote on his Instagram alongside a collage of photos from the night.

"I'm proud of you babe for being the global ambassador for the special Olympics #specialolympics #honour #1stblackpresident #Obama"

The Formula 1 driver seemed excited to be visiting the city, in particular the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial.

"Got to see Washington DC a little, hanging out with president Lincoln, what an amazing city. To stand where Dr Martin Luther King did his big speech, amazing! #DC #lincoln #goodtimes."

Following their appearance at the White House, Nicole, 36, and Lewis, 29, enjoyed a more sporty excursion on Sunday as they headed out on mountain bikes with friends.

Stopping to take a breather, the couple posed together for some selfies, which the sportsman later shared with his 2.24 million Twitter followers.

Later that day, the stars turned babysitters as they spent the day with Lewis' nephew Kaiden Lewis. "Now hanging out with my nephew Kaiden Lewis & my lady @nicolescherzy .... #goodtimes," read a caption on a cute photo montage showing the little tot with the pair.
