Lewis Hamilton dating Barbara Palvin?

Lewis Hamilton is dating Barbara Palvin.

The Formula One champion is reportedly romancing the model - who has dated the likes of Justin Bieber and One Direction's Niall Horan - after the pair hit it off during a recent meeting in Cannes, France.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "She and Lewis were only in Cannes for a short time but got on like a house on fire. They hung out every day and partied at night. By the end of the trip they were really close. They've been keeping in touch, with plans to meet up again soon."

Things must have changed for Lewis recently as he previously admitted he doesn't "have time" for a relationship at the moment.

He said: "I don't have time. I'm the most busy I've ever been. I'm trying to win the championship and travelling like never before ... I think dating and the relationship thing is down the line for me."

And alongside his sports career, the 31-year-old star is keen to make music too and previously revealed some of his tracks are inspired by his relationship with Nicole Scherzinger.

He said: "I've been inspired by life - the easy stuff like relationships, that's always easy to talk about, and partying.

"It's not really break-ups or none of that emotional stuff, it's usually fun stuff. It's the good stuff in relationships, the excitement when you're in something new.

"I wish I could release my album this year, but right now I'm focused on working on getting the fourth championship. I hope at some stage people will hear it, but it's not ready yet."

A representative for Lewis denied reports and says the racing driver and Barbara are just "good friends".
