The start to his F1 season may not have been great but Lewis Hamilton may have finally made it to the 'podium' of life, off the track.
Reports in the British media suggests that Hamilton - who had to retire from the Australian GP due to a misfiring engine - may have gotten engaged to long-time girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger. The couple have had a six-year on-off relationship and their romance has been quite public. Now, the UK's Daily Star claims that a source has confirmed that the Mercedes driver and the former Pussycat Dolls singer have decided to take their relationship to the next level.
"Lewis is doing his best to keep the news under wraps but he is absolutely delighted," the source reportedly said. "He got down on one knee and Nicole finally accepted."
