The Pussycat Dolls singer was an on and off girlfriend of Lewis Hamilton. Their relationship lasted for a very long time, from 2007 until 2015. In the final year of their relationship, they split for good.

Danielle Lloyd


Danielle Lloyd dated Lewis for six months in 2002, long before his big break in Formula One.

Jodia Ma


Jodia Ma dated Lewis for four years until they finally parted ways in June 2007. The two were childhood sweethearts and met at the Cambridge School of Arts and Science.

This was when Lewis Hamilton was first establishing himself as a sports star.

Lotta Hintsa

Another person Lewis reportedly dated was Miss Finland Lotta Hintsa. Lotta is the daughter of Lewis’ F1 mentor Aki Hintsa – who passed away in 2016 at the age of 58. Though the model confirmed that she had a good relationship with Lewis, she denied that they had ever dated.

Vivian Burkhardt

Vivian Burkhardt represented Grenada in the Miss World pageant in 2007 – and went on to win Lewis’ heart.

The couple appeared at a number of events together, but only dated for a few months.


Lewis Hamilton and the Barbados star have been friends for a fairly long time. However, after his split from Nicole Scherzinger, he and Rihanna were rumored to have taken things to the next level.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora is yet another pop star who was reportedly dating Hamilton. The two never confirmed their relationship publicly, but were often spotted together on numerous occasions.

In November of the same year, Rita played the loyal girlfriend by supporting him at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix – where Lewis was forced to surrender his crown to Nico Rosberg.

Barbara Palvin

Hamilton met the Hungarian model at the Cannes Film Festival.

She went on to support him at the European, Hungarian, and Monaco Grand Prix.

Winnie Harlow

Rumors of model Winnie Harlow dating Hamilton first emerged at the GQ Awards in September 2016. It was reported that they left the London party in separate cars. They were also pictured together at the amfAR Gala in Cannes, on May 2017.
