Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton is following in his ex-girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger's footsteps to reportedly record some R&B tracks in the studio.
The 26-year-old McLaren F1 star, who is a huge music fan and wanted to lay down some of his own material using state-of-the-art facilities, has secretly rented a top west London studio to record, Daily Sun reported.
But the tracks won't be made public as they are for his own pleasure. "Not many people know Lewis has been making music in his spare time.
"He's really into his R&B and has been cutting lots of songs that fit in with his taste. At the moment he's fully focused on F1 so it's unlikely any of the tracks will be made public. But he's had good feedback from the few people who have heard them," a source said.
The former world champion has been renting the whole complex to ensure he's not spotted by anyone. He wouldn't be the first F1 driver to try pop stardom. Another former world champion, Jacques Villeneuve released an album in 2007 called 'Private Paradise'.
