Singer and former X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger, was at the opening race of the 2012 Formula One World Championships to cheer on her boyfriend Lewis Hamilton. While Lewis did not manage to win the race, he still received praise from his girlfriend.
Nicole admitted that she admires everything that Formula One drivers do, as well as everybody else involved in the team. Scherzinger explained, "I just have so much respect for what the racers and their teams do.”
She added, "It is one of the greatest sports. I am fascinated and I am in awe of Lewis when I watch him. He is very special." Nicole also admitted that she gets nervous before Lewis races but continued, "I am a very competitive person by nature so I try to focus positive energy for him."
Lewis Hamilton qualified in pole position for the Australian Grand Prix but was passed at the first corner by his team mate Jenson Button, who went on to win the race. Lewis ended up coming in third place, after a safety car cost him second place to Sebastian Vettel.
