Lewis Hamilton's taking singing lessons

Lewis Hamilton has been taking singing lessons.

The Formula 1 ace, 30, is keen to crack the music industry next year and is so serious about his new career path that he's been training with a vocal coach to perfect his range.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Lewis is very savvy and wants to be the best at everything he does - even when it comes to his music.

"He's got a vocal coach who does exercises with him and teaches him how to keep his voice in the best condition.

"He is planning to release his debut material next year and wants to be prepared if he has to do any live performances."

The handsome sportsman, who has described his style as "a mixture of The Weeknd and Drake, developed a passion for music when he was dating former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, 37, after he built her a studio in his home.

He said previously: "Music has been a huge passion of mine since I was really young. I started playing guitar when I was 13. In here, I can be me, I can be vulnerable. I can show a side of me that people don't get to see.

"The plan was that it always started as a hobby but it's got to a point now where it's very serious ... If I'm not training, getting ready for the race, I'm here."

And it seems Lewis will have plenty of professional feedback before his tracks are released to the world as he's already played his content to Pharrell Williams and Kanye West.
