It has been reported that Lewis Hamilton and supermodel Winnie Harlow have been growing close, but have been keen to keep the beginnings of their relationship private. According to The Sun, the couple grew closer after knowing each other "for a while" but want to keep their blossoming romance on the "down low."
A source revealed to the newspaper: "Lewis and Winnie have known each other for a while and partied together in New York last year, but things have stepped up a notch recently.
Winnie and Lewis have reportedly been dating
"They have been on a couple of dates and she attended his Grand Prix party in London in July. They didn't want to fuel any suspicion at the awards on Tuesday so agreed to stay apart from each other and avoided getting pictured together."
Lewis and Winnie, who has suffered from skin condition Vitiligo from a young age, reportedly left together but in separate cars after the GQ Awards, sparking rumours that the pair are together. The source continued: "At the end of the night they left together but deliberately took different cars to keep it on the down low. It's nothing serious at the moment the Lewis is just playing the field, but he really likes Winnie."
The couple were also spotted at Kanye West's Yeezy season four fashion show in New York on Wednesday, and posed for a photo together on Snapchat.
Lewis opened up about being single
Following his split from Nicole Scherzinger after seven years together, Lewis revealed how much he was enjoying single life, telling Jonathan Ross: "Yes it's different, I've been in two relationships in my life, I was 18 to 22 and 23 to 30 and so I missed the single life that all my friends had and now I've just been throwing myself at work, I've worked harder than ever this year, as I said I've travelled like crazy, I've experienced everything I want to experience.
"I'm enjoying it, it's really good fun, it's a fun period of time in my life."
