F1 WAGs: Wives and Girlfriends of Formula 1 stars, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen

The 2021 Formula 1 season has come to a thrilling end, with Max Verstappen claiming the driver’s title from Lewis Hamilton in a stunning final race in Abu Dhabi.

That season will be spoken about for many years to come, not least because of the controversial nature of the final lap.

But these drivers will now retreat to their private yachts and residences as they get ready to go again in 2022.

Whilst the infamous playboy lifestyle may not be in as much evidence these days, the big salaries and the international set-setting lifestyle does lend itself to Instagram-ready pictures for the grid’s drivers. So who are the wives and girlfriends of the grid as we head into the 2022 F1 driver’s championship?

LEWIS HAMILTON: GIRLFRIEND

Lewis Hamilton’s celebrity status is now stratospheric even beyond the sport of Formula 1, and in the past Hamilton has been linked to a number of high-profile celebrities, including singers Rita Ora, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna, and models Barbara Palvin, Gigi Hagid, Winnie Harlow, and Sofia Richie.

His longest, and most famous fling was with singer Nicole Scherzinger, whom he dated on and off between 2007 and 2015. But in an interview at the beginning of 2021 Hamilton admitted to having a ‘non-existent’ romantic life, and that his focus was on racing.

SEBASTIAN VETTEL: GIRLFRIEND
Notoriously private about his life away from F1, Vettel has been in a long-term relationship with childhood friend-turned-girlfriend, Hanna Prater, with whom he has two children, Emilie and Matilda. He will race under the Aston Martin badge in the 2021 season.

KIMI RAIKKONEN: WIFE

The 2007 champion may not like talking about himself too much, but we still know he has been married on two occasions, first to former Miss Scandinavia, Jenni Dahlman from 2004 to 2014, and then to his current wife, fitness and underwear model Minna-Mari “Minttu” Virtanen in 2016. With the latter, he has two children – a boy and a girl.

MAX VERSTAPPEN: KELLY PIQUET

Kelly Piquet
Verstappen’s ex-girlfriend is German student Dilara Sanik, but the pair broke off their relationship last year. Verstappen is guarded over his personal life, but in 2021 his girlfriend is Brazilian model Kelly Piquet.

32-year-old Piquet is the daughter of legendary F1 driver Nelson, and was previously in a relationship with fellow F1 driver Daniil Kyvat.

CHARLES LECLERC: GIRLFRIEND

Charles Leclerc’s ex-girlfriend, model Giada Gianni, was with the Ferrari driver for a number of years and there were rumours of an engagement in the works. But the pair broke things off at the end of 2019, and since Leclerc has found a new partner.

Fellow Monegasque resident Charlotte Sine has been with Leclerc since the end of the 2019 season. She is an architect student and, until lockdown hit at least, she begun posting pictures of her accompanying Leclerc on his travels to various F1 venues.

DANIEL RICCIARDO: GIRLFRIEND

Jessica Gomes
It seems the Australian’s charm stretches beyond the boundaries of F1, as he has been linked to a handful of stunning women in recent years following the end of his long-term relationship with childhood sweetheart Jemma Boskovich in 2016.

He was rumoured to be dating Red Bull colleague Annemarie Horbass, who worked with an event management company associated with the team. More recently, he has been said to be involved with model and fellow Perth native Jessica Gomes, but has refused to confirm any relationship exists. But as of 2021, the Australian is thought to be single.

VALTTERI BOTTAS: WIFE

For nearly a decade, Bottas was involved with Olympic Swimmer and fellow Finn, Emilia Pikkarainen. After dating since 2010, they were married in August 2016 in Helsinki.

Unfortunately in a social media posting in January 2020, Bottas admitted that the marriage had come to an end, and he is thought to be single at the moment.

PIERRE GASLY: GIRLFRIEND

Pierre Gasly has been dating Caterina Masetti Zannini, who hails from Bologna, Italy, since 2018. Unlike many of the girlfriends on the grid, Zannini’s career is not in modelling but as an established aerospace engineer.

The duo posted the above picture to their Instagram in April 2020 just after the beginning of lockdown.

ROMAIN GROSJEAN

Romain Grosjean may not be on the F1 grid for the 2021 season, but home life is probably just as busy as his F1 career! He has been with television presenter and journalist Marion Jolles Grosjean for over a decade, having been married since 2012. Together they have three children – Sacha, Simon, and Camille.

LANDO NORRIS: GIRLFRIEND

Norris isn’t believed to be fairly outgoing, and has admitted previously that he prefers staying home and playing video games than embracing the glitz and glamour of his celebrity status. If he has a beau, it’s a secret one, though as of 2021 he noted that he had enjoyed spending time in lockdown with his games.

LANCE STROLL: GIRLFRIEND

Kimberley Garner
Not only does Stroll have a burgeoning F1 career, but his dad is a billionaire, making him a fairly eligible bachelor. He was previously linked to designer, tv presenter, and socialite Kimberley Garner.

FERNANDO ALONSO: GIRLFRIEND
Alonso, who returns to F1 in 2021, has long been linked with Italian lingerie model Linda Morselli, but at the moment it is unclear whether the pair remain an item.

SERGIO PEREZ: GIRLFRIEND

Checo has been partnered with Carola Martinez since 2011 and got married last summer after previously having a child together – Sergio Perez Jr.

Perez is usually quite private about his life away from F1 but Carola regularly posts pictures of the family together on her Instagram.

CARLOS SAINZ: GIRLFRIEND
In 2021 Sainz has been romantically linked with former journalism student and current PR Isabel Hernaez, but Sainz is notoriously protected about his life away from the track and it is unclear whether the couple are officially an item.

GEORGE RUSSELL: GIRLFRIEND

George Russell’s current girlfriend in 2021 is Seychelle De Vries, the sister of Formula 2 driver Nyck de Vries. The pair rarely post pictures of their relationship together on social media.

STEPH CURRY'S WIFE AYESHA WISHES NBA STAR HAPPY BIRTHDAY 'Love You Beyond Measure'

Ayesha Curry poured her heart out for her NBA superstar husband on his special day … sending Steph a super-romantic note on his birthday.

Steph turned the big 3-4 on Monday … and Ayesha was there to congratulate her husband on another year of life.

“Happy birthday to the love of my life!,” Ayesha said on Instagram. “You bring our family so much joy and happiness. We love you beyond measure. The year ahead is bright and I can’t wait to watch you grow and thrive even more.”

“To my favorite person in the world, happy birthday @stephencurry30 ! 🥰🥰🥰.”

Steph and Ayesha first met when they were in high school. After years of dating, Steph proposed to Ayesha … and the two tied the knot in 2011. The power couple has been married for more than 10 years and now have three children together — Riley Elizabeth, 9, Ryan Carson, 6, and Canon W. Jack, 3.

Of course, Steph’s wife doesn’t mess around when it comes to their union — she recently denied rumors alleging they were in an open relationship … saying the claims are “ridiculous” and calling it disrespectful to her marriage to make such an insinuation.

Stephen Curry
Ayesha is by far Steph’s biggest cheerleader — she was in the building at Madison Square Garden when Steph passed Ray Allen for the most 3-pointers made in NBA history.

It’s clear their love is going stronger than ever!!

Hamilton splits with pop star girlfriend

Lewis Hamilton has split with his long-term girlfriend, according to British tabloid reports.

The news could explain the 2008 world champion’s uncharacteristically bad mood last weekend in Korea, where he vowed to begin to “redeem” himself after the worst period in terms of form and incidents in his career.

The Daily Mail says 26-year-old Hamilton’s split after four years with American pop singer Nicole Scherzinger, 33, is because of their “conflicting work schedules”.

Separate spokesmen for Hamilton and Scherzinger did not comment.

But the news was also reported by the Daily Mirror and the Sun, with a source saying the pair have “agreed there’s no point as they never see each other”.

Stephen Curry Responds To Ayesha Curry’s Question ‘What Could You Not Live Without For One Month’: “Sex, Coffee, Your Phone, Or Weed?”

Published

on

Steph Curry is one of the most popular players on the NBA stage and it has led to his wife Ayesha Curry finding herself in the spotlight at times as well. The two have enjoyed the limelight and have become one of the more well-known couples in the NBA.

Ayesha has previously come under fire for comments she has made regarding feeling to be wanted, but things have improved considerably since then. She even spoke about her body transformation and how she hopes it would inspire others to follow in her lead.

The couple recently went on HBO’s About Last Night show and we got some hilarious soundbites out of it too!

Ayesha Curry: “Babe what could you not live without for a month?”

Steph Curry: “Sex, for sure.”

Ayesha Curry: “Okay” (laughs)

When Ayesha asked her husband what he couldn’t live without for a month if he had to choose between sex, coffee, his phone, or weed, Steph answered without hesitation, sex, for sure.

Ayesha did not seem too surprised by the response which indicates that the couple seems to be on the right terms at the moment. From the outside looking in, it hasn’t always seemed that way, so it is good to see the couple having some fun on the set with each other. Also on the show were the likes of Draymond Green, who opted to avoid answering this question.

Draymond Green: “Damn that’s tough”

Curry and Draymond had some fun on the show but their eyes are now all set on getting back to the NBA Finals. The Warriors eliminated the Memphis Grizzlies to get to the Western Conference finals and will face the Dallas Mavericks, who stunned the top-seeded Phoenix Suns.

They are heavy favorites against the Mavs and not making it to the Finals this season would be a major surprise at this point. With their championship pedigree, you have to think another title is very much on the cards.

“Am I cheating on Stephen Curry, or am I cheating on my children?”: When Ayesha Curry talked about how she felt like she was betraying her family with Jada

NBA superstar Stephen Curry’s wife Ayesha Curry once talked about how she felt like she was cheating on her family

Whenever people think of power couples in the NBA, there are a few names that have grown to represent that tag. We have Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union-Wade, LeBron James and Savannah James, and obviously, we have Stephen Curry and Ayesha Curry.

Stephen Curry

Steph and Ayesha met in a church youth group. They were 15 and 14 at that time. They reconnected when Ayesha was in LA, pursuing her acting career, and Steph was in Davidson. The duo got married in 2011, and have been together since.

Steph has established himself as a household name in the NBA world. He has achieved plenty in his NBA career and is going to keep adding to that. On the other hand, Ayesha is an actor, a celebrity chef, a published author, has her own restaurants, and runs her own business.

'Astonished' Lewis Hamilton made 'urgent phone calls' after FIA's Michael Masi comments

Lewis Hamilton was said to be left ‘astonished’ by reports that former FIA race director Michael Masi could return to a fresh role. The governing body’s president, Mohammed ben Sulayem, revealed last week that the door was open for Masi’s controversial comeback.

An interview given by Ben Sulayem has apparently stunned Hamilton into making ‘urgent phone calls’. The Mercedes ace felt robbed of a world title last year after Masi made a contentious decision towards the culmination of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

The Australian was sacked from his position as race director following the event. Hamilton was leading title rival Max Verstappen, only for a safety car to be deployed on the track.

Masi controversially allowed five lapped cars between Hamilton and Verstappen to unlap before the final lap was started. Verstappen, on fresher, softer tyres, overtook Hamilton to win the race and the world championship.

The departure of Masi came after pressure from senior figures at Mercedes. However, Ben Sulayem told the Daily Mail last week: “Michael is there and we might use him. We are open to everything.”
