The 36-year-old singer couldn’t hide her emotion after the Mercedes racer triumphed in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as she greeted him in the pit lane with a big kiss and began weeping before he showered her in champagne to celebrate his victory
Nicole was seen kissing the driver on the helmet after he finished his final lap in first place, to win his second ever F1 world championship. The former Pussycat Doll took to her Instagram account to post a picture of the magical moment and reveal she was “so proud” of him.
She wrote: “lewishamilton Congratulations babe for winning the #2014F1WorldChamionship !!! I’m soooo proud of you!!! #GodisGood #abudhabiGP
“Ahhh!!! My man lewishamilton #2014F1WorldChampion #soblessed (sic)”

He said: “I’m lost for words. I want to say a big, huge thank you [to] all the fans coming out all this way – it made all the difference this weekend, and to my family and my mum back home, and to my team.”
As well as Nicole’s good wishes, Lewis received many congratulations from other big names, including Britain’s Prince Harry, who called the 29-year-old star an “absolute legend” on the Mercedes team radio
British Prime Minister David Cameron also paid tribute to the driver, describing it as a “great day for British motorsport”.
He wrote on Twitter: “Congratulations to @LewisHamilton on winning the #AbuDhabiGP and his second #F1 world title. A great day for British motorsport. (sic)”
Lewis, who defeated his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg to clinch his second world title, waved the Union Jack flag around as he drove around the Yas Marina circuit in a victory lap.
