Shakira ‘locked in conversation’ with Lewis Hamilton

Colombian pop star Shakira and Lewis Hamilton were seen at a celebratory party after the British Grand Prix. 

Shakira and rumoured love interest Lewis Hamilton were seen celebrating the Mercedes star’s podium finish at the British Grand Prix last weekend at Tape London. 

The Colombian pop star was in attendance at Silverstone to witness Hamilton finish third behind Lando Norris and Max Verstappen.

It’s the third F1 race the singer has been to this year after Barcelona and Miami. 

Following the latter, she and Lewis reportedly went out for a luxury boat trip and dinner on the Florida waterfront.

And now, they have been spotted cosying up together during a night out in London. 

One observer recalled how they “seemed very friendly” with each other “for two people who say there isn’t anything romantic between them”.

“After watching Lewis come third at Silverstone, Shakira joined him for a massive party at Tape nightclub,” the source told the Sun newspaper. 

“They were on a VIP table together in the venue and Shakira was seen locked in conversation with Lewis as well as various other members of his entourage.

“She appeared to be having a great time and was up dancing close to the table where she had been sitting with Lewis. 

“Shakira called it a night around 3.30am and was picked up by a chauffeur who took her back to the Hotel Cafe Royal.

“Lewis was more hardcore and stayed out clubbing until 6am and went to The Rosewood hotel for a kip.”

The onlooker added: “For two people who say there isn’t anything romantic between them, they seemed very friendly. They’d make a great couple if they did take the plunge.”

Rumours that the duo may be dating come following Shakira’s split from ex-partner and Barcelona legend Gerard Pique last year. 

The former couple were dating for 11 years and have two children together, Milan, 10, and Sasha, eight.

Meanwhile, Hamilton’s most notable ex-partner is Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, who the F1 star had an on-and-off relationship with for seven years.
