It’s only the first week of 2024 and Lewis Hamilton has already been spotted with a potential new love interest, who he is rumoured to be potentially dating.
The seven-time World Champion was spotted celebrating the start of the New Year with Brazilian model Juliana Nalu, who is the ex of controversial American musician Kanye West.
Nalu is 25 years old and has modelled for several high-profile companies, whilst she also has just under one million followers on Instagram.
As well as being a model and extremely popular on social media, she is also part of social initiative Favela Seeds.
Favela Seeds is based in her home country and is “an educational and cultural incentive center and provider of basic needs such as food, psychological support and clothing”.
Hamilton is also part of several initiatives, in what is a clear similarity between the Mercedes driver and the model
The 38-year-old was seen in Brazil exiting a party with Nalu on December 30, whilst he spent New Year’s Eve with her and several friends on a boat.
He is certainly enjoying his off-season in the country he’s an honorary citizen of, ahead of his 18th F1 campaign.
Hamilton will remain in F1 with Mercedes for at least two more seasons, after he signed a new contract ahead of last year’s Italian Grand Prix.
Given that he hasn’t won a race for two seasons, what is continuing to motivate the 103-time race winner?
He recently revealed that it’s the “dream” of winning again.
“It’s the dream of standing on the top step, seeing your team,” Hamilton said, as reported by The Mirror.
“One of the most amazing things is being able to look back and having the flag of the nation rising behind you, and seeing the team.
“I remember the first win I had with this team [in Hungary in 2013]. I have a particular picture of 2015 in Australia with the [team] down there in tears – it was just amazing to be a part of that.
“The power of that is a huge part of the drive. Winning the world championship is a huge part of the drive. Continuing to build with the team on the impact work we’re doing, and continuing to push with the team with Mission 44. I don’t know how far that can go and I’m trying to expand it, and that means I’ve got to raise more money.”
